    Another option for improving performance of Remote Desktop over a slow connection is to enhance your VDI or RDS deployment with Ericom Blaze, a software-based RDP acceleration and compression solution that provides improved performance over WANs. Besides delivering higher frame rates and reducing screen freezes and choppiness, Ericom Blaze accelerates RDP performance by up to 25 times, while significantly reducing network bandwidth consumption over low-bandwidth/high latency connections.
