Around 20 years ago, Vanilla Ice – “Ice Ice Baby” was the hippest song on MTV, and 14.4 K modems were still the fastest way to connect to remote computers (the internet was still in infancy at that time). Citrix engineers were busy working on optimizing their remote connect protocol (ICA) because they knew, even at that time, a great user experience together with great performance is the key to making a delightful product.

Unlike our friends at VMware (Build-to-lossless feature), we at Citrix don’t think you have to compromise performance in order to deliver a great user experience over any network. We have continued to push the boundaries and innovate. With HDX technology, our customers all over the world get the best user experience with their virtual desktops no matter where they use them – in the office, from home, or in branch offices.  We think that is why people love their XenDesktop virtual desktops, because they work anywhere, just like people do.

A couple of months back, VMware published a report not approved by Citrix (more on this perhaps in my next blog) on performance tests they commissioned that evaluated a single user using single virtual desktop on a “quiet” LAN to support their claims that PCOIP provided equal or better performance than HDX.  What experienced IT professional is going to test a single user environment and extrapolate that to expected performance with hundreds or thousands of people in departments or divisions?
