VMware View

Deliver Desktop Services from Your Cloud for End-User Freedom & IT Control

Simplify desktop and application management while increasing security and control with VMware Horizon View (formerly known as VMware View). Deliver a personalized high fidelity experience for end-users across sessions and devices. Enable higher availability and agility of desktop services unmatched by traditional PCs while reducing the total cost of desktop ownership up to 50%. End-users can enjoy new levels of productivity and the freedom to access desktops from more devices and locations while giving IT greater policy control.

Automated Desktop Provisioning

Horizon View Manager provides a single management tool for greater IT efficiency to provision new 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.

Streamlined Application Management

VMware ThinApp application virtualization separates applications from underlying operating systems and reduces conflict between the OS and other applications for increased compatibility and streamlined management. Applications packaged with ThinApp can be run centrally from the datacenter, deployed locally to physical or virtual desktops or on USB drives for deployment flexibility.

Advanced Virtual Desktop Image Management

Horizon View Composer enables the rapid creation of desktop images from a golden image. Updates are instant and guaranteed across any number of virtual desktops. When combined with ThinApp, IT administrators can reduce the number of total images, storage requirements and operational costs.

Automate Desktop Operations Management

VMware vCenter Operations Manager for View allows administrators to gain insight into desktop and infrastructure performance, quickly pinpoint and troubleshoot issues. Administrators can optimize resource utilization, and proactively manage the desktop environment through the management dashboards. vCenter Operations Manager for View is an optional add-on for Horizon View customers. You can also leverage PCoIP Extension Services to collect Horizon View statistics into your existing WMI tool.

Efficient Resource Utilization

Horizon View Storage Accelerator optimizes storage load by caching common image blocks when reading virtual desktop images. Space Efficient Disks continuously reduce the storage needed per desktop. Both these technologies improve storage capacity and utilization, thereby reducing costs of additional hardware.

Built-in Security

Maintain control over data and intellectual property by keeping it secure in the datacenter. Encrypted protocol traffic provides secure end-users access virtual desktops inside or outside of the corporate network. Integration with vShield Endpoint enables offloaded and centralized anti-virus and anti-malware (AV) solutions. To eliminate agent sprawl and AV storm issues, risk of malware infection, and simplify AV administration. Horizon View also supports integration with Radious 2-factor authentication requirements.
