1 C H E A T S H E E T Enterprise Desktop Solutions: What is VMware View? VMware View 4.5 is the leading desktop virtualization solution, built for delivering desktops as a managed service from the platform to the protocol. This solution unlocks the desktop components including the operating system, applications user data and settings, allowing IT teams to manage them independently of each other for extreme business agility. VMware View dynamically assembles these components together on demand, giving end-users a single personalized, unified desktop with all applications and information immediately available. VMware View simplifies desktop management, reduces operational costs and increases control for IT with flexible access, and a superior experience for end-users, over any network or while offline. What is New in? Windows 7 Support Enable enterprises to migrate to Windows 7 at double the speed and half the cost of a traditional physical Windows 7 migration. Includes full support for Windows 7 as a client access platform or virtual desktop operating system View Client with Local Mode (previously Offline Mode) Download virtual desktops onto a physical PC or laptop and execute locally with or without a network connection. Security policies remain intact and only changes are checked back into datacenter Application Assignment Easily assign ThinApp applications from View Manager to pools or individual desktops. Kiosk Mode Allow multiple users to share a published virtual desktop from a kiosk - no need to launch virtual desktop first in order to access applications Updated VMware View Manger Administrative Capabilities Includes new scalable admin user interface, role-based administration and platform extensibility to leverage third-party management tools such as Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM). VMware View Architecture C H E A T S H E E T / 1

2 Enterprise Desktop Solutions: What is included in? Linked Clones VMware View Composer Single Image Management Manage hundreds or thousands of virtual desktops from a single image. View Composer rapidly creates desktop images that share virtual disks with a parent image to conserve disk space, reduce storage needs and radically streamline updates and patch management. Parent Image VMWARE VIEW COMPER VMware ThinApp 4.5 Eliminate Application Conflicts VMware ThinApp application virtualization software decouples applications from operating systems by encapsulating them into an isolated file. Remove application conflicts on the desktop and manage applications from a single central location updating or patching all end-users at once. TH INA PP VMware View Manager 4.5: Enterprise-Class Virtual Desktop Manager VMware View Manager provides desktop secure brokering, authentication, desktop provisioning user data, settings and application management, from a single console to quickly provision, manage and deploy all virtual desktops. Use VMware View Manager to connect users to virtual desktops on VMware vsphere or other resources such as terminal servers, blade PCs or even remote physical PCs. Rich User Experience PCoIP Display Protocol Built for optimal virtual desktop experience over LAN or WAN View Printing Easily print to locally attached printer View Display Includes real multimonitor display options View Multimedia Optimized delivery of rich audio and video View Direct Seamlessly access attached peripherals from USB on local device VMware vsphere 4 for Desktops Tuned and optimized specifically for hosting virtual desktops. Provides increased scalability and lets you manage more than 1,000 hosts and up to 10,000 virtual machines from a single management console. Extend powerful business continuity and disaster recovery features such as High Availability and Fault Tolerance to the desktop. Windows 7 Support Windows Vista Full support for Windows 7 as a client access platform or virtual desktop operating system. Reduce the pain, cost and complexity of desktop migration by delivering Windows 7 as a virtual desktop. Windows 7 Windows XP View Client with Local Mode (Formerly Offline Desktop) Run managed virtual desktops locally or in the datacenter through the same administration framework. Download a complete virtual desktop onto a local device for local execution while retaining global security policies. When users log into corporate network, only the changes are checked back in and synced. vshield Endpoint Integration Enable offloaded and centralized antivirus and anti-malware (AV) solutions, eliminating agent sprawl and AV storm issues while minimizing the risk of malware infection and simplifying AV administration for VMware View deployments. C H E AT S H E E T / 2

3 Benefits Simplify and automate desktop management. VMware View lets you manage all desktops centrally in the datacenter and provision desktops instantly to new users, departments or offices. Create instant clones from a standard image, and dynamic pools or groups of desktops. Optimize end-user experience. VMware View PCoIP display protocol provides a superior end-user experience across a variety of network conditions. Adaptive technology ensures an optimized virtual desktop delivery on both the LAN and the WAN. Address the broadest list of use cases and deployment options with a single protocol. Access personalized virtual desktops complete with applications and data anywhere and anytime with VMware View. Lower costs. VMware View reduces overall costs of desktop computing by 50 percent or more by centralizing management, administration and resources and removing IT infrastructure from remote offices. Enhance security. Since all data is maintained within the corporate firewall, VMware View minimizes risk and data loss. Built-in SSL encryption provides secure tunneling to virtual desktops from unmanaged devices. Integration with VMware vshield enables simplified AV administration while minimizing the risk of malware infection in desktop virtual machines. Increase business agility and user flexibility. VMware View accommodates changing business needs, such as adding new desktop users or groups of users, while providing a consistent experience to every user from any network point. Ensure reliable business continuity and disaster recovery. VMware View leverages the business continuity and disaster recovery capabilities of VMware vsphere to enable automated desktop backup and recovery as a business process in the datacenter. Standardize on a common platform. VMware View is tightly integrated with VMware vsphere for a seamless out-of-the-box experience. VMware vsphere has been tuned and optimized for desktops.
