Desktop virtualisation

Thursday, 16 April, 2009



VMware View 3 allows organisations to ‘decouple’ a desktop from specific physical devices.

It creates a personalised view of a user’s desktop, applications, and data that is securely accessible from almost any device, at any time.

IT personnel can then provision and manage thousands of virtual desktops, which are hosted as virtual desktop images in the data centre.

View Composer, an optional add-on, enables IT staff to create multiple virtual desktops from a single image, increasing the speed of provisioning desktops and reducing storage requirements.

ThinApp, another option, enables simplified application packaging and deployment to a virtual desktop environment. It allows applications to run independently of the host operating system version or patch level. This simplifies updating and patching applications, and provides additional storage reduction for virtual desktops by centralising and compressing applications.

Offline Desktop allows users to securely move virtual desktops between the data centre and a local laptop or desktop, increasing user productivity while providing secure mobility. Users can “check out” a virtual desktop onto an ordinary PC, run the virtual desktop locally and then check it back into the data centre.
