Paper: Citrix XenDesktop 5.5 vs. VMware View 5: User experience and bandwidth consumption

Yesterday, Citrix’s official blog published a comparative study between XenDesktp 5.5 and VMware View 5 commissioned to Principled Technology, in order to answer to an identical study, from the same testing facility, previously published from VMware.

According to Citrix’s blog that set of tests evaluated a single user using single virtual desktop on a “quiet” LAN, so they must be repeated on a realistic corporate environment in order to let HDX definitively crush PCOIP.

Unsurprisingly the results support Citrix’s claims also if the poster must admit that VMware View 5.1 wasn’t available when the tests were conducted.
