Availability Anywhere Part 14 — TCP over Named Pipe

This is the fourteenth part of the Availability Anywhere series. For your convenience you can find other parts in the table of contents in Part 1 – Connecting to SSH tunnel automatically in Windows

We built a very nice TCP over file System solution. Let’s now implement something similar, based on named pipes. Here comes the code:

And now the benchmark:

This makes it a little slower than the TCP over file System run locally. However, we can’ run this solution between the host and the guest VM (at least I don’t know how to route named pipes to the VM), but we’ll use this code for something else next time.
