Press Release

Expand Networks Announce WAN Optimization Support for VMware View 4

Securely enables, accelerates and controls VMware View over the WAN

Virtualization Magazine on Ulitzer

Expand Networks has announced that it has worked with VMware to provide immediate support for all VMware View 4 remote display protocols across Expand’s Accelerator range of WAN optimization solutions to securely enable, accelerate and control VMware View over the WAN. Supporting both TCP and UDP transport protocols, Expand can uniquely provide enablement benefits to all VMware View protocols within a single solution offering, including the newly incorporated Teradici PCoIP protocol.

Expand’s technology is also unique in its combined ability to be deployed within a virtualized infrastructure and to accelerate and control virtualized traffic. Expand’s solutions can help organizations rapidly take advantage of the significant benefits of VMware View 4, successfully safeguarding and enhancing their investments in desktop virtualization projects.

Scott Davis, chief technology officer, Desktop Business Unit, VMware, explains, “Expand’s multi-facetted technology helps enable all remote desktop protocols to be delivered over the WAN in a VMware View™ environment, improving communication efficiency, quality of service and security for customers with virtual desktop WAN deployments. Expand provides unique technology – such as its ability to work with the UDP transport protocol to support PCoIP with secure tunneling – that helps customers protect their virtualization investments while facilitating growth and longevity of their virtual desktop deployments.”

The benefits that Expand’s solution brings to VMware View include support for:

  • Teradici PCoIP
    - Securely enable transport of PCoIP within standard or advanced tunneling options (Advanced Encryption Standard (AES256), Firewall Transparency and Router Transparency Modes) eliminating the potential need to reconfigure firewalls
    - Apply QoS to control PCoIP traffic flow and assure end-user experience
  • Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) & SUN Ray Appliance Link Protocol (ALP)
    - Compression and byte-level caching techniques enable up to 10 x more users on the network and eliminate the need for bandwidth upgrades.
    - Layer 7 Quality of Service (QoS) enforcement for RDP/ALP, and within RDP, provides monitoring and control at the channel layer to help ensure VMware View desktops run unimpeded over the WAN.
    - TCP acceleration mitigates latency and delivers a quality & guaranteed desktop experience for the remote user.
  • VMware ThinApp
    - Prioritize VMware ThinApp traffic over the WAN using QoS techniques
  • Multimedia Redirect
    - Multimedia traffic that is redirected can be compressed, accelerated and prioritized with QoS
    - Ensure that video or voice traffic gains the priority and bandwidth it requires over the WAN
  • USB Redirect
    - Accelerate, compress and control redirected USB-connected device traffic with QoS
