Geek Week VDI: Virtual Bridges VERDE WAN experience testing (Part 3)

The purpose of this video was to test the user experience of Virtual Bridges VERDE 3.0 over a variety of user environments, including:

  • 100mbps LAN connection (3:45)
  • A "global" WAN scenario, with 768kbps, variable latency between 250-350ms, and 1% packet loss (13:58)
  • A "cross country" WAN scenario, with 1.5mbps, 75-150ms latency, and 0.5% packet loss (24:16)
  • A "metro" WAN scenario, with 5.0mbps, 30-40ms latency, and 0.5% packet loss (34:11)

Note about packet loss: Throughout the video, we variably referred to the "global" and the "cross country" scenarios as having either 1% or 0.5% packet loss. I can assure you that regardless of what we said on camera, the on-screen text (which matches the specifications above) is accurate. Only the "global" scenario had 1% packet loss. The others were set to 0.5%.

These videos are delivered via RTSP streaming, which means you can click and drag the playhead to any point in the video. The mm:ss times listed above correspond to the beginning of that section.

For a full analysis of the results of this video, read our summary of how Virtual Bridges VERDE did in our Geek Week: VDI project. This video is part of our "Geek Week: VDI" project where Gabe and Brian tested five VDI products in five days.

At the time of emergency did everything go with the very real panic. Is very difficult to act wisely when in an emergency.
