VMware View 5.0 Teradici PCoIP DEMO

David Wakeman (@desktopguy) has kindly recorded this video with Jeff Dillabough, Teradici VP of Silicon Engineering during VMworld 2011.

The APEX2800 is a PCIe offload card that promises help organizations to improve desktop consolidation ratios. Increasing CPU consolidation ratios allows for server memory max out without having to add many additional CPU cores.

The hardware platform of choice to host VDI solutions is now more critical than ever. Platforms with very high memory density are preferred and I’ll soon discuss What is the sweet spot between CPU cores and Memory while making use of the APEX2800.

In the past I have discussed the similar subject without the APEX2800, read Cores and more Cores… We don’t need them!

Teradici has subtle announced a Beta APEX2800 in mezzanine form factor that will fit into blade servers.

I am lucky to be part of a large project involving technologies from VMware, EMC, Cisco and Teradici. You will soon hear from me, but for now watch this interesting video.

    Organisations don’t want to add custom PCI cards into their servers for such a specific VDI workload, they might as well just give their users some more powerful workstations !

    Totally agree with Pete’s comment. It’s insane to think anyone would be dumb enough to make the VDI cost more expensive up front. Ruins the whole ROI story you guys have been force-feeding the industry.

    I disagree guys – this is generation one tech and I am really keen on any technology innovation in the VDI space. We will have to get our hands on the hardware and test against cheap CPU configs with the card vs. expensive 10/12 core. Could be interesting for those running XP VDI on older hardware and looking to jump to Win 7 without ditching the current servers.

    If you’re looking into VDI for initial cost savings, you’re looking at it for the wrong reason, and at the wrong time.
