Answer:
Note: This article considers the Tera1 line of products only. For metrics including Tera2 products please see knowledge base article Encryption and bandwidth metrics used for various setups of Tera1 and Tera 2 based PCoIP Devices and VMware Horizon View (1245)

View 4.0.x

  • VMware View Software Client --> VM default= AES128 (Salsa20 is preferred)
  • Zero-client (VMware View) ------------> VM default= AES128 (Salsa20 is preferred)

View 4.5

  • VMware View Software Client -> VM default= Salsa20
  • Zero-client (VMware View) -----------> VM default= Salsa20
  • VMware View Software Client --> Hard-Host Card default= AES128 (Salsa20 is preferred)
  • Zero-client (VMware View) -----------> Hard-Host Card default= AES128

Notes:

  • SALSA20 256-bit supports up to approximately 20Mbp
  • VMware View Software Client --> Soft or hard host can exceed 20mbps regardless of encryption; though this depends on the performance of the client hardware.
  • Zero-client (VMware View) --> PCoIP Remote Workstation Card supports speeds up to 220mbps

View 4.6 and newer using Security Gateway

  • Zero-client --> VMware View Security Gateway --> VM default= AES128 (must be AES128 on both ends)
  • VMware View Software Client--> VMware View Security Gateway --> VM default= AES128 (must be AES128 on both ends)
  • Zero-client (VMware View) --> VMware View Security Gateway --> PCoIP Remote Workstation Card default= AES128

Notes:


    • SALSA20 256-bit Supports up to approximately 20Mbps
    • AES 128-bit supports up to approximately 7Mbps max due to the encryption required on the zero client to work with security gateway
    • VMware View Software Client --> Soft or hard host can exceed approximately 20mbps regardless of encryption; though this depends on the performance of the client hardware.
    • Zero-client (VMware View) --> PCoIP Remote Workstation Card (without security gateway) supports speeds up to 220mbps

Using a Hard PCoIP portal (PCoIP Zero Client) to connect to a PCoIP Remote Workstation Card

  • Zero-client ------> PCoIP Remote Workstation Card   default= AES128

Note:

  • AES128 in this configuration supports up to approximately 220Mbps throughput
