At its conference VMworld 2008 in Las Vegas last month, VMware previewed the next phase of its virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) technologies announcing it as VMware View.

On stage Steve Herrod, the company’s CTO, unveiled a partnership with the startup Teradici to develop a more efficient remote desktop protocol.
It seems that this may be not enough, maybe because of the time needed to have a commercial product, so VMware took some extra steps to boost Microsoft RDP performance today.

The company signed a license agreement with the thin computing vendor Wyse Technologies to use its technologies TCX-MMR (for multimedia) and TCX-MDS (for multi-display) to enhance the virtual desktop experience in VMware View products.
