I’m thinking about desktop virtualization. How much bandwidth do I need for VDI?

56Kbps? 100Kbps? 512Kbps or a 1Mbps link? How fast do you need it to go? This is a question we get often from customers and partners implementing Virtual Desktops. The truth is, in a hosted VDI scenario where you are connecting to your VM over a network, bandwidth can be an extremely important factor in determining the end-user experience. However, there are many facets to be considered so there is unfortunately no single answer to this question. What’s more importan than throwing out a number is to understand the tradeoffs involved and then arrive at the bandwidth numbers and quality of experience that suit you best. What is the bandwidth Requirement For VDI? At the low-end, you can get away with a 56Kbps connection (RDP), while at the high-end (RGS, PCoIP) you may require a 100Mbps LAN connection. In order to provide support for the widest range of network characteristics, VDIworks’ Virtual Desktop Platform┬ásupports over┬á half-a-dozen protocols that have each been tuned to work best in different circumstances. It is important to understand the tradeoffs between, bandwidth, latency, colour depth, sound quality, screen frame rate and cost for your specific environment. […]
