Blast Extreme is a high performance display protocol. The protocol contains both WAN optimization and support for 3D graphics, resulting in a far superior end user experience when compared to RDP.

To use the Blast Extreme protocol:

  • Each virtual desktop must have the latest versions of the Horizon Agent and DaaS Agent installed.

  • End users must have the VMware Horizon Client installed on their end point device.

  • Blast Extreme is the default protocol for Native Clients in the pool settings.
