VMware Horizon Suite brings virtual desktop into post-PC era

Ted Samson | Aug. 29, 2012
New offering addresses BYOD headaches by giving users secure, consistent access to apps and data from any device

Application Manager also includes an IAM (identity-and-access-management) technology that helps IT extend user profiles securely into the cloud.

Finally, VMware Horizon Mobile is based on the VMware MVP (Mobile Virtualization Platform), and it enables organizations to establish and securely manage an employee's connected mobile workspace in isolation from their personal mobile environment.

As for Wanova Mirage, the software is capable of cloning endpoint images in the data center and running them locally on physical devices. The goal here is to provide users with a consistent PC experience, regardless of device, while giving admins a centralized location to manage it all. VMworld execs demonstrated how a user's desktop OS could be upgraded within moments from Windows XP to Windows 7 while retaining the same desktop appearance and files. They went on to show how that desktop image could be quickly accessed from a MacBook.
