VMware Releases VMware View 3
With VMware View 3, IT organisations can 'decouple' a desktop from specific physical devices or locations to create a personalised view of a user's desktop, applications, and data.
VMware Inc. has announced the general availability of VMware View 3. With VMware View 3, IT organisations can 'decouple' a desktop from specific physical devices or locations to create a personalised view of a user’s desktop, applications, and data – called “myView” – that is securely accessible from almost any device, at any time. By hosting these virtual desktop images in the datacentre using the virtualisation and management platform, VMware Infrastructure 3, VMware View 3 enables IT personnel to provision and manage thousands of virtual desktops simply, securely, and with substantially lower operating costs.
VMware View 3, Enterprise Edition includes VMware Infrastructure Enterprise Edition and VMware View Manager 3, a flexible desktop management server enabling IT administrators to quickly provision and tightly control user access.
VMware View 3, Premier Edition includes VMware Infrastructure Enterprise Edition, VMware View Manager 3, VMware ThinApp for agentless application virtualisation and VMware View Composer, a new product that enables IT staff to create multiple virtual desktops from a single image, increasing the speed of provisioning desktops and reducing storage requirements.
"With VMware View 3, the most proven, feature-complete and widely deployed virtual desktop solution in the market today takes a major step forward. VMware is redefining what is possible with desktop virtualisation," said Jocelyn Goldfein, vice president and general manager of VMware’s Desktop Business Unit. "VMware View 3 introduces technologies that increase the scalability and richness of virtual desktops while reducing management time and costs. For example, the new VMware View Composer dramatically reduces storage consumption and increases the speed and flexibility of provisioning desktops. Our other new features such as virtual printing, multimedia redirection, offline desktop, and the brokering of Windows Terminal Services sessions, can provide end users with the best possible virtual desktop experience."
Chitale Dairy has established high availability of IT systems by virtualising its data centres with the help of VMware infrastructure.
The partnership has helped save on expensive real estate rentals and capital expenditure without having to expand the server room.
