Remote display protocol class is in session

VDI shops must understand the ins and outs of remote display protocols to make sure users are having a good experience with the virtual images they receive.

When people say, "It's the journey, not the destination," they usually aren't talking about a remote display protocol, but they very well could be.

A remote display protocol is responsible for delivering the actual images to users' endpoints in VDI deployments. From VMware Blast Extreme to Citrix HDX and every remote display protocol in between, it's about the journey of getting virtual images from the data center to the destination -- users' endpoints.

Show off how well you know the features that separate one remote display protocol from another and more, such as the idea of open source remote display protocols, in this quiz.
