[THIN] Re: Citrix Provision Server 5.0 Released to Web!

Really Is that so - I thought it just used UDP....   I do believe
multiple protocol options will be coming in the future though.

No, PVS uses a protocol called BXP which is block level protocol like
iSCSI except it is approximately 4x faster than iSCSI.   ICA is a
remoting protocol and not a streaming protocol.

Pardon my ignorance, but does Provisioning Server use ICA to deliver the
OS and apps?

My guess is NOT, because from reading the description it says that app.
processing takes place at the desktop.

 

We'd like to use diskless PCs and deliver the OS and apps via the
network.

 

Our experience with ICA has been that is slow for real-time apps.

        Just received the following notification from Citrix
        Provisioning Server 5.0 (Project Charles) has officially been
released to web (RTW)! 

         What does this mean:

        *  Existing PVS customers can download Provisioning Server 5.0
as of today (as a Benefit of Subscription Advantage).

         

        *  All net-new customers will not be able to directly purchase
Provisioning Server 5.0 until September 1, 2008.  This is when the new
Media Kit SKUs are available for sale.

         

        *  If a new or existing customer purchases Provisioning Server
today, they will receive Provisioning Server 4.5 SP1 as part of the
original order, but will also have the ability to download Provisioning
Server 5.0 via their MyCitrix account.
