What is SUNDE-VDI Protocol?
SUNDE-VDI Protocol is an independent protocol purpose-built for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) to deliver fast and seamless virtual desktopperformance across standard Ethernet Network.
SUNDE-VDI Protocol is available as a central component of vPoint software. It provides the communication link between the vPoint Server software, virtual machines and the Diana zero clients, delivering a viable virtualization environment as well as a true local-desktop user experience.
How does SUNDE-VDI Protocol work?
SUNDE-VDI Protocol works on both the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) and Transmission Control Protocol (TCP). It uses TCP for reliable data delivery such as authentication, USB redirection, network services, and UDP for efficient and fast delivery of media-rich data such as audio and video, enhancing the user experience on remote desktops.
Unlike the Remote Display Protocols, which are typically redesigned for VDI and are used by Thin Clients for terminal services or other pre-generation architectures, SUNDE-VDI Protocol doesn’t require complex VDI display protocol extensions or specialized hardware, added either, to the host or the client to support multimedia playback on virtual desktops. It efficiently leverages the processing capabilities of the remote host, delivering the entire remote desktop to the terminal at 25ftp, making it easier and efficient to handle the data via host facilitating software acceleration.There are also no application and media format dependencies or incompatibilities as in the case of client rendering. All future applications and media format supported on the host just simply work.
SUNDE-VDI Protocol does not require a CPU, or a large amount of memory at the endpoint. This makes it possible for stateless zero clients that reduce significant costs of the client’s hardware, as well as, eliminates client operating systems that tend to create security threats and management burdens.
How does SUNDE-VDI Protocol perform?
SUNDE-VDI Protocol is designed to provide close PC-class performance. It provides the ability to render graphics and animation with graphics acceleration that can handle dynamic flash, high resolution full frame-rate media, graphic-intensive software and a full USB peripheral interoperability over the network.
