VMware shares vision, looks to horizon

Thor Olavsrud | Aug. 29, 2012
VMware CTO Steve Herrod tells VMworld attendees how the virtualization leader is managing the consumerization of IT. The vision hasn't changed a lot since last year, with one exception. The vision is now an integrated one based on the Project Horizon Suite.

VMware says it expects to deliver a beta version of Horizon Suite in the fourth quarter. VMware is also continuing to push the idea of desktop virtualization, both with the existing VMware View application and now with Mirage, brought to VMware as part of its recent Wanova acquisition.

Whereas View focuses on hosting desktops in the data center, Mirage is designed to add the capability to manage desktops in the cloud while still allowing local system execution on physical desktops and laptops. Mirage clones the images of the endpoints in the data center and runs them locally.
