Manage and deliver virtual desktops through a single console for improved desktop management and fast provisioning. Respond to mergers and expansion faster than ever before. Deliver greater levels of availability by maintaining and delivering virtual desktops, applications and data from the data center. Improve security and keep applications up to date with better patch management and centrally managed security policies.
Let users access their virtual desktops from a wide variety of devices thick, thin or mobile - without any performance degradation. On LAN or WAN connections, VMware View 4 with PCoIP delivers a high performance desktop experience, even over high latency and low bandwidth connections. Choose from several multi-monitor configurations, play rich multi-media and easily connect to peripheral devices. And since desktops are tied to user's identities and not devices, user's desktops follow the user from device to device for ultimate freedom and mobility.
Simplified desktop management
Desktop and application virtualization breaks the bonds between software, hardware and operating systems, eliminating the need to actually install or manage desktop environments on end user devices. From a central location you can deliver, manage and update all of your Windows desktops and applications in minutes. VMware View makes the testing, provisioning and support of applications and desktops much easier and less costly.
Automated desktop provisioning
Through View Manager 4, VMware View provides a single management tool to provision desktops or groups of desktops, and an easy interface for setting desktop policies. Using a template, you can customize virtual pools of desktops and easily set policies, such as how many virtual machines can be in a pool, or logoff parameters. This feature enables greater IT efficiency by automating and centralizing desktop provisioning activities.
Advanced virtual desktop image management
Based on the mature Linked Clone technology, View Composer enables the rapid creation of desktop images from a master image. Whatever updates are implemented on the parent image can be pushed out to any number of virtual desktops in minutes, greatly simplifying deployment and patches and reducing costs. The process does not affect user settings, data or applications, so the user remains productive on a working desktop, even while the changes are being applied.
Superior end user experience
Address the broadest range of use cases and deployment options with VMware View's PCoIP desktop display protocol, and deliver a high-performance desktop experience, even over high latency and low bandwidth connections. PCoIP's adaptive technology is optimized for the delivery of virtual desktops to users on the LAN or over the WAN. VMware View gives users access to their virtual desktops over a wide variety of virtual desktop devices, without any performance degradation, anytime. They can also play rich media content, choose from any number of monitor configurations and seamlessly access locally attached peripheral devices such as scanners and mass storage.
Availability and scalabilityProduct Highlights
VMware View delivers high availability, with no single point of failure. VMware High Availability (HA) ensures automatic failover and provides pervasive, cost-effective protection within your virtualized desktop environment, without the cost or complexity of traditional clustering solutions. Additionally, advanced clustering capabilities on the physical and virtual layers provide enterprise-class scalability with no single point of failure.
