Quick and dirty test of PCoIP half way around the world

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

Thanks to vBrownBag TechTalk sponsors Veeam, Cisco and Nutanix I’ve had an opportunity to test real high latency.
