Original Abstract

The article deals with the testing and comparison of virtualization techniques and protocols for desktop virtualization common available on Microsoft platforms, VMware and Citrix. The article is divided into three parts. The first part deals with the technical principles of virtualization and compares the benefits of individual technologies. The second part deals with the design of a methodology for testing the performance of virtualization protocols. Testing methodology consists of identifying key factors that describe the working process of client stations, which are subsequently used for the selection and design of hardware architecture. The third part is practically oriented and deals with the performance analysis and testing. The testing methodology is transformed into a scripting language and it is ready for automated testing. The performance characteristics of the RDP and PCoIP protocols are monitored and compared.

Czech abstract

Tenro článek se zabývá možnostmi využití terminálových serverů a dostupných virtualizačních technologií na platformách Microsoft, VMware a Citrix, a převážně porovnáním komunikačních protokolů RDP a PCoIP, které jsou základem těchto technologií. V první části jsou rozebrány technické principy virtualizace a srovnány přínosy jednotlivých technologií. Druhá část je zaměřená prakticky a zabývá se návrhem testovací metodiky výkonnosti obou protokolů RDP a PCoIP. Testovací metodika sestává z určení klíčových faktorů popisujících chování klientské stanice, které jsou následně využity pro výběr a dimenzování hardwarové architektury. Testovací metodika je transformována do skriptovacího jazyka a připravena pro automatizované testy. Realizované testy lze rozdělit do skupin zabývajících se výkonnostním zatížením serveru, sledováním datového přenosu a mapováním časové odezvy systému na uživatelský podnět. Jsou zde sledovány a porovnávány výkonnostní charakteristiky protokolů RDP a PCoIP.
