Have been having issues with multimedia esp flash over RDP.
I was just about having a panic attack as i had just bought a new server etc, and I tried lots of things before I found out that I needed a helping hand from certain technologies that accelerate Flash performance.
I currently have hyper-v on a server with RDP session host as a role also.
I have some thinclients that cannot run Remote FX through a browser so that solution went out the window.
So next one I have been trying has been citrix vdi-in-a-box which has managed to perform well. Flash and audio seem to be performing fine.
My question is regarding other technologies/solutions.
I am wondering whether XenDesktop is better to use, does it sit directly on hyper-v, is it more expensive?
I am also wondering whether Xenserver is woth looking at? Is this like a full bare metal hypervisor? Wonder which is better solution really.
I am also looking to speak to some guys called ericom who have there own little RDP client, which might just be the easiest solution to this Flash issue.
And i am unsure about another technology that is linked to wyse OS, its called TCX thats meant to sort out this issue.
...the problem is - as you stack up the technologies, the costs and support implications rise - you may well end up spending more money on this solution than deploying standard W7 PCs, which we all know run multi-media perfectly, and are as future-proof as you can get....
