VMware: Deep Dive into VMware Blast Extreme Adaptive Transport


Ramu is director of R&D at VMware, where he leads the VMware Blast Extreme Protocol (which is part of VMware Horizon 7 and VMware Horizon Cloud product lines) along with the delivery of hosted desktops and applications to the cloud. His group was instrumental in innovating and developing the Blast Extreme Adaptive Transport from the ground up. Ramu has held different leadership positions over his past 15 years of networking/security and distributed systems/cloud experience. Ramu has a Master degree in Networking from Carnegie Mellon University.

Building a transport for desktop and application virtualization is a multi-dimensional problem. Users can access these remote applications and desktops from anywhere:

  • From the same site as where the infrastructure is hosted over LAN;
  • From a remote branch office over WAN/cloud;
  • From their favorite coffee shop over public Wi-Fi; or
  • On the move and accessing the remote infrastructure over mobile networks.

Given that end users can be located anywhere, the network conditions at their disposal can also vary—a lot. The bandwidth can vary from few tens of kilo bits-per-second to 100s of megabits-per-second. Latency can vary from sub-millisecond to 100s of milliseconds, and packet loss can vary from near-zero to up to 50%.
