I sit down with F5 Solution Architect Paul Pindell to get an inside look at BIG-IP's native support for VMware's PCoIP protocol. He reviews the architecture, business value and gives a great demo on how to configure BIG-IP.
BIG-IP APM offers full proxy support for PC-over-IP (PCoIP), a leading virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) protocol. F5 is the first to provide this functionality which allows organizations to simplify their VMware Horizon View architectures. Combining PCoIP proxy with the power of the BIG-IP platform delivers hardened security and increased scalability for end-user computing. In addition to PCoIP, F5 supports a number of other VDI solutions, giving customers flexibility in designing and deploying their network infrastructure.
I cover a bunch of stuff for F5’s Technical Marketing Team. After working in Professional Theatre for 10 years, I decided to change careers. Starting out with a small VAR selling Netopia routers and the Instant Internet box, I soon became one of the first six Internet Specialists for AT&T managing customers on the original ATT WorldNet network. From there, I moved to Verio to focus on access, IP security along with web hosting. Then a stint with Exodus with their two enormous datacenters in the Chicago area working with such customers as Ticketmaster, Rolling Stone, uBid, Orbitz, Best Buy and others. Bringing the slightly theatrical and fairly technical together, I train, write, speak, along with overall product evangelism for F5. I've also been in such plays as The Glass Menagerie, All’s Well That Ends Well, Cinderella and others. You can follow me @psilvas.
