BriForum 2012 London session video: Branch Repeater and Other WAN Accelerators for Desktop Virt.

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, 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? What about the others?  Specific topics also include:

  • Caveats and the best methodologies
  • Branch repeater internal architecture and architectures best practices    
  • Multistream ICA and BR   
  • How to manage high availability and how to prioritize 
  • QoS and VPX
  • Independent test performances and a full user-case
