PCoIP Network Design Checklist

The PCoIP protocol provides a real-time delivery of a rich user desktop experience in virtual desktop and remote workstation environments. To ensure a responsive desktop, the PCoIP protocol must be deployed across a properly architected virtual desktop network infrastructure that meets bandwidth, QoS, latency, jitter, and packet loss requirements.

Teradici released the 2nd version of their Virtual Desktop Network Design Checklist document. This is a must read document, digging down to Network Requirements, Network Bandwidth, and PCoIP Session Variables.

    I just want to point out to the author that these values are for View 4.6 and prior only. This may not be a big deal now as 4.6 is the latest version, but as future versions are released these measurements change. In any case, please note this. We will be changing this document in the next revision (3) to reflect this as well.

    BTW: Thanks for all the great posts!

    Is there a guide for View 5.1? or has the PCoIP protocol version not changed from 4.6 to 5.1?

    Can I use this guide to plan for view 5.1 as well?

    @Madura Eleperuma
    With the PCoIP changes implemented in VMware View 5.0 the required bandwidth has once again completely changed. I suggest you read the PCoIP related articles at http://myvirtualcloud.net/?page_id=2270
