VMware: Enterprise Desktop of tomorrow is here today!

VMware, Inc., the virtualization leader, today announced an end-to-end virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solution with the introduction of VMware Virtual Desktop Manager 2, the company's next generation connection broker. Today's news extends VMware's comprehensive line of desktop virtualization software and services to bring new levels of security, mobility and manageability to global enterprise desktop users. The new software will be among the many products and solutions showcased this week at VMworld 2007 in San Francisco.

"The desktop is fundamentally changing," said Jerry Chen, senior director of enterprise desktop solutions at VMware. "Our customers are transforming the way they manage their desktop infrastructure and replacing traditional PCs with centralized desktops that can be more effectively managed and controlled. Users of virtual desktops can enjoy reliability, data protection and disaster recovery capabilities that have traditionally been available only for server applications. In addition, they get the flexibility of being able to access their desktops from many locations and devices."

VMware Virtual Desktop Manager 2 is a component of VMware VDI, an end-to- end desktop virtualization solution that enables organizations to centralize desktop management and control using the VMware Infrastructure 3 platform. Through tight integration with VMware Virtual Center, VMware Virtual Desktop Mana`ger delivers enterprise-class virtual desktop management while providing end users with a familiar desktop experience. VMware Virtual Desktop Manager connects remote clients to centralized desktops that can be accessed securely from almost anywhere and from many different hardware platforms. VMware Virtual Desktop Manager is designed to meet the security and scalability needs of small and large deployments.

Right on the money this. I may have to already start looking for desktop virtualization (I started with server virtualization on my international project), I did apply for Pano Membership as I really love the stuff (and let me be absolutely shameless and say that : I have the cash for it as well) and I know what needs to be done tomorrow better be done today (if not yesterday!)


People, users, admins don't have the time to spend managing the enterprize on clients and servers, no sire, we ain't got no time for that!
