Use VDIworks Protocol Inspector to get a full view of VDI protocols in use on your network

If you haven’t yet heard about our new Protocol Inspector utility, you might want to check it out. For administrators responsible for maintaining hundreds of thousands of workstations, VMs and Thin clients, one key challenge can simply be knowing which systems support which protocols! With so many protocols out there, and many integrated into the OS (e.g. RDP), how do you know which endpoints and hosts are accessible? Protocol Inspector helps you tackle this conundrum… and more. PI is a simple utility that you can install in a few minutes and it doesn’t require any agents to be deployed on target VMs or Thin clients. You simply install it on a single network connected Windows system, then run a scan. It’ll discover all the nodes on your network and will analyze them to determine whether they run PCoIP, VideoOverIP, RGS, ICA, RDP or VNC. You’ll quickly be able to tell: […]

Of SUVs and PCs

SUVs are not quite the thing to buy anymore. In an age of environmental concern and rising gas prices, these behemoths with their oversized engines and horrendous gas mileage are, well, quite pass├®. According to some┬áresearch I’ve been doing, between 2000 and 2007, we’ve seen on average 2.5M SUVs sold every year, peaking at about 3M, just in the US. For its wastefulness the SUV has deservedly become a symbol of excess, expense, wastage and overkill. But it shouldn’t be the only one. There’s another piece of technology that might be just as bad, but which seems to have avoided the ire of the public at large. And that’s the PC. That’s right, the substantial hunk of plastic and metal that sits on your desktop consuming 400W of power, in many cases, every second of the day. And just in sheer proliferation, PCs outnumber SUVs the way fancy hats outnumber baseball caps at Ascot. Compared to the 2.5M SUVs we were talking about earlier, we’re buying up almost 30 times that number of PCs – approximately 70M last year. Unlike SUVs, that are no longer selling like the hot cakes they never were, the PC market continues to grow. The sensible verdict would be: Ungreen and unnecessary. Especially so when there are excellent alternate technologies, such as virtual desktops, that can cut the waste and the excess power consumption while also increasing the manageability, security and availability of desktops PCs! But the IT industry in general hasn’t done a good enough job of getting the message out. […]
