Citrix XenDesktop 7.12 and new updates and in-depth on HDX Enlightened Data Transport

So with XenDesktop 7.12 released today I finally got a bit more information on what’s available in the new release. One of the features which was announced was Local Host Cache support is finally back, before I got the time to dig into the material Bas Van Kam did a great blog post on it here –> http://www.basvankaam.com/2016/12/05/the-long-awaited-xenapp-and-xendesktop-7-12-local-host-cache/

You can also see the release notes here on what’s new in 7.12 –> http://docs.citrix.com/en-us/xenapp-and-xendesktop/7-12/whats-new.html

But one thing did catch my eye, which is the new enlightened data transport layer. Which is a new feature which is now added for evaluation purposes in 7.12

Now this is interesting, since HDX sessions have up until now been based upon TCP (Framehawk is the exception which works great on high packet loss and latency scenarios) but with alot of customers moving to cloud we are often faced with low packet loss scenarios but a bit higher latency issues. So customers moving to Azure would often get a suboptimal experience based upon how far away the resources are.

This new enlightened data transport layer is designed for just that! “ Quote:
