Ericom Blaze – More Than RDP Acceleration

| 1375
SHARE:

The purpose of Ericom Blaze is to significantly improve end-user experience when working remotely using RDP. Ericom Blaze primarily achieves this by greatly compressing and accelerating RDP. This results in smoother animations and faster response times, especially over slower connections. But Ericom Blaze does not stop there – it provides additional features that enhance end-user experience in other ways. In this blog post I will describe several such features:

Linux and Mac Support

Ericom Blaze includes native clients for Windows, Linux and Mac (Mac client is currently in public beta). In general, the features that are provided by Ericom Blaze for Windows are available for these platforms as well.

Seamless Windows

Microsoft introduced seamless windows in RDP version 6, but only when connecting to Windows Server 2008 or 2008 R2. Ericom Blaze extends this functionality by providing seamless windows for Windows Server 2003 as well. In addition, Ericom Blaze supports seamless windows for workstation operating systems – Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 – which standard Microsoft RDP does not.

Multi-Monitor Support

Microsoft added multi-monitor functionality to RDP in two steps. First, in RDP version 6 Microsoft introduced multi-monitor spanning, which is the ability to have a single, large virtual monitor that covers all local monitors. This feature is available when connecting to any RDP host, starting from Windows XP. Second, in RDP 7 Microsoft introduced true multi-monitor support, but only when connecting to Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7. Ericom Blaze supports RDP 7’s multi-monitor functionality, and in addition enhances multi-monitor spanning with true multi-monitor capabilities such as proper maximize (to single monitor), proper dialog centering and more. This means that you get multi-monitor capabilities when connecting to any RDP host, from Windows XP on up.
