BriForum 2012 Chicago video: WAN Accelerators and Desktop Virtualization

In this session, Vincent Branger will discuss the need for WAN optimization for virtual desktops. Attendees will learn about potential benefits and challenges of WAN optimization, including the main features such as TCP optimizations, caching/indexation/deduplication, protocols including ICA, RDP and PCoIP, architecture and more.  Vincent will also delve into the different vendors in the space and what makes them different, and answer common questions about vendor products, such as: Is Riverbed the best for desktop virtualization? Is Silverpeak the main challenger? Is Citrix Branch Repeater a unique solution? CISCO and the partnership with Citrix about ICA ? Specific topics also include:  - Caveats and the best methodologies - Architectures best practices - How to manage high availability - Two full user-cases.
