Application Streaming

To stream or not to stream, that is the question. In the middle of a VMware View project and the decision was finally made to not move forward without investigating application streaming to virtual desktops in order to take advantage of non-persistent virtual machines. Some of the front runners come to mind such as Symantec, Microsoft, Citrix and InstallFree which will all allow the ability to control user profile, lockdown desktop and application streaming on a find me follow me principle.

VMworld 2010 Theme


Obviously the theme this year was all about cloud computing and how VMware solutions can help you move towards that model. From cloud solutions like VMware Cloud Director, vShield Zones, vCenter and vShpere all the way to the endpoint access using mobile devices, VMware View, and Cloud based suite solutions like Zimbra, it was clear that the push was to upgrade to vSphere 4.1 as the starting point and move on to use open solutions and standards to migrate your IT Infrastructure into a private, hybrid, or public cloud.
