VMware is looking to make it easier for IT administrators to manage tens of thousands of virtualized desktops, where before they could handle 500 to 1,000.
3Creating Virtual Pools
IT administrators can create automated pools of virtualized desktops that can be customized through VMware’s View Manager.
VMware View 4 gives users a choice of communications protocols, enabling them to decide between Microsoft’s RDP or the PC over IP protocol in View 4, which VMware licenses from Teradici.
5Removing the Smartcard Option
Using View 4, IT administrators can opt to require users to use smartcard authentication in order to activate sessions when the RDP is being used in the virtualized desktop environment.
VMware officials say View 4 makes it easier for users to manage their virtual desktop environment, including giving them desktop options when they sign on.
7View and vSphere
Building View 4 atop vSphere 4 brings a host of enhancements for desktop virtualization in the areas of performance and scalability. It also brings VMware’s vMotion migration tool into the environment.
