I took advantage of the fact that I’m on the other side of the world to my lab to see what PCoIP is like over a high latency network. Since I’m at VMworld Barcelona running the vBrownBag TechTalks with Damian and Josh it is a rare opportunity for me to test a real high latency link.
I’m using the VMorld wireless to connect back over the Internet to my Lab in Tauranga. Speedtest.net reports a 313ms ping time and a 1.71Mbps download speed. It turns out that without any special optimization the PCoIP protocol works really well, so I recorded a quick video and posted it to YouTube
