Remote protocols benchmarking, Citrix, VMware and RDP–Part One PCoIP vs Blast Extreme
So I have been eargly awaing the Vmware Horizon 7 release and with it also a new display protocol called Horizon Blast, which has been a huge improvement from the former protocol PCoIP, but it is still available as an option when setting up remote desktop groups in Horizon 7 as well.
