Daniel Feller, Citrix Lead Architect, released the results of an interesting series of simulation tests performed on XenApp and XenDesktop network bandwidth utilization. The simulation tests were performed over a series of different XenApp and XenDesktop versions released over the last six months and the results are impressive. Bottom line is that Citrix manages to constancly drop average network bandwidth utilization with every new XenApp/XenDesktop release.
The following graph summarizes the network bandwidth utilization results.
