Horizon View in the Branch Office Just Got “Officially” More Awesome

Several months back, I got up in this forum to talk about some good stuff for the branch office from our friends at Riverbed. As part of that discussion, I described a tech-preview of a VDI deployment architecture where the virtual desktops themselves are distributed to servers in the branch, while management stays centralized at the datacenter.  Well, today I’m excited to announce that we’re moving out of tech-preview and into full support of distributed branch architectures with partners like Riverbed, Ciscoand...

Licensing for the Mobile Workforce: VMware Horizon Suite 1.0 Licensing

Are you wondering about licensing for the new VMware Horizon Suite and each of its component bundles? Following is a quick guide to Horizon Suite licensing. Because of the preponderance of multiple devices per person in the workplace, VMware decided to go with named-user licensing for the Horizon Suite. Why? Named-user licensing allows each named user to access the Horizon Suite from any of their devices. The Horizon Suite is software for a mobile workforce. An end user can sit at their desk and access their... [Lire la suite]

How To Back Up Hyper-V VMs Natively in Windows Server 2012

Did you know that with Windows Server 2012 you can now backup Hyper-V VMs with very little effort and very little configuration? Now, I'm not recommending that you throw out your existing enterprise backup system and standardize on Windows Server Backup in 2012, especially if you are using products like System Center Data Protection Manager (which is fantastic for backup) or Veeam or others. But, in a pinch Windows Server 2012's backup is quite handy. Before you can use Windows Server Backup, you must add that feature from Server... [Lire la suite]

The Rise of the Multi-Device Workspace

The IT world never stands still. External forces are always conspiring to ensure that change is the only constant for IT organizations. It seems like just yesterday that IT spent most of its time focusing on only managing – employees. IT supported desktops that were owned by the company and were running company owned software. Those desktops traversed company-owned networks to company-developed applications, running on a company-owned server in a datacenter owned and operated at the company. It was in this more centralized world... [Lire la suite]

Broadening VMware’s EUC Horizons with Innovation

Welcome to 2013, the era of multi-device mobile workspace, BYOD and the consumerization of IT. Let’s explore each of these. Consumerization of IT doesn’t mean encouraging your users to use unaccountable, non-compliant consumer services to get their work done. But it does mean that IT has competition! IT is no longer the only game in town. Users are far more sophisticated in 2013 – they use tools and technologies in their personal lives and woe to the IT organization that doesn’t provide access to modern easy to use, business...

vCenter Server Simulator

I recently spent some time experimenting with a really cool tool found only in the VCSA (vCenter Server Appliance) called vcsim, short for vCenter Simulator. I initially noticed vcsim during some of my early beta testing of vSphere 5.1 and during this period it is not uncommon to find various utilities and debugging tools used by developers and QE for testing. At the time, I was more focused on usability issues and reporting bugs with the product and I did not think much of this vcsim. It was only until recently, after talking to... [Lire la suite]
