Summary: With XenServer now a part of XenApp 5 Feature Pack, you’ll want to join two renowned virtualization gurus – Ruben Spruijt, Solutions Architect at PQR and Jeroen van de Kamp , CTO at Log-in Consultants, as they discuss the results of Project Virtual Reality Check (VRC) – a joint research venture on optimal configuration for the different available hypervisors (hardware virtualization layers). The project arises from the growing demand for substantiated advice on how to virtualize and scale for Terminal Server and Virtual Desktop (VDI) workloads.  The first phase of Project VRC compares the performance of virtualizing Windows XP and 32-bit Windows 2003 Terminal Services on ESX, XenServer, Hyper-v, and bare-metal hardware.
