  • Let’s first talk about the Desktop dilemma facing most enterprise IT teams and end users. Simply put the desktop dilemma is how to satisfy end user requirements while ensuring IT requirements are also met. What users want is the flexibility to access their personalized desktops, applications and data anywhere, anytime using multiple devices. What this means is the ability to have their desktops follow them not a device. Additionally they want the ability to use native windows applications in conjunction with web based applications. They need the ability for these applications to work seamlessly together. Finally users want 24 by 7 access to their desktops implying a critical need for desktop business continuity.On the other side of the spectrum, IT teams face the challenge of managing different types of desktops. Enterprise desktops are one of the most difficult to manage IT asset today. Within any organization, there exist different users, a variety of hardware that must be supported, growing security concerns, and a workforce that is increasingly dispersed geographically. In addition, different types of users need different applications. Managing these moving parts is both complex and costly. This makes managing these devices very time consuming and inefficient in addition to making it very expensive to manage these disparate desktops. Industry research shows that more than 70% of the total cost of ownership of a desktop is spent on operational activities associated with managing the PC: managing end-users, hardware maintenance and repairs, provisioning and upgrading PCs, and software application management like installing and patching. Increasingly, IT departments are being pressured to reduce costs but manage more applications, users and desktop configurations with minimal resources. Companies are being mandated to do more with the existing resources or even reduced resources. Quantifying security risks and their associated costs can be very difficult. A report often cited to estimate the cost of a security breach is the “CSI/FBI Computer Crime And Security Survey”. According to the 2007 survey, the average cost per security breach was $350K, up from $168K in 2006. Average losses associated with the theft of confidential information, except from mobile devices, were $5.7 million per incident. The loss associated with data or network sabotage were $1.1 million per incident.As the landscape changes, it is essential that businesses think strategically about desktop management to ensure that their workers get the resources they need to efficiently do their jobs while meeting IT requirements.
  • Effectively virtualization is the only solution which can help meet end user needs while also meeting the requirements of IT without any compromise. When we talk about virtualization, we of course are talking about the Operating system or machine level virtualization which is a core strength of VMware’s offerings. In addition to OS level virtualization we are also talking about application level virtualization which breaks the bonds between the applications and the OS thereby ensuring isolation and encapsulation of the applications too. Separating these different layers helps provide a very flexible way of deploying desktops and applications to end users while streamlining desktop management.
  • VMware View is a more holistic approach to solving the desktop dilemma without compromising on the end user requirements and IT requirements. There are 4 key components of VMware View. VDI, Storage Optimization, application virtualization and client virtualization.
  • This helps reduce the amount of storage consumed by 90%. This in turn helps reduce the TCO associated with a VMware View solution.View Composer has been architected such that the User personalization is completely separated from the OS settings. It provides a seamless user experience by logically joining two virtual disksHighly Managed OS Disk which helps reduces provisioning time, makes it very easy to roll out patches and updates.User Data Disk – which is a Persistent disk to store user data and settings and helps maintain user personalizationThis in turn helps streamline the management of large desktop deployments while ensuring that user personalization are carried even when updates, patches or upgrades are done.
  • The final new component of the overall View 3 solution is the Offline Desktop capability. This provides end users the ability to download (check out) virtual desktop onto their client devices such as a laptop and execute the virtual machine locally. Security policies are enforced and virtual desktops may “checked back in” to the datacenter and resynchronized. This enables a full user experience even when there is no network connection or when the network connection is a high latency WAN like connection.Offline desktop component of VMware View increases productivity by enabling end users to work offline and run managed virtual desktops locally for the best user experience. It also helps Desktop IT admins manage desktops running locally or in the datacenter through the same administration framework.
  • In a offline mode, the checked out virtual desktop has a heartbeat back to the View Manager – so admins can push updated policies or deactivate the virtual desktop if required.Additionally, if changes have been made to the checked out virtual machines, the differences are synced back with the centralized virtual desktop at check-in. Key thing to remember is that only the delta is checked back in and not the entire desktop image.This highlights some of the key functionality and components of VMware View 3. Now let’s briefly touch upon how these virtual desktops can be accessed.
  • In many cases, it is simply not realistic to expect that a customer will replace all of their existing architecture with a VMware View solution. A new feature introduced as part of the View Manager 3, Unified Access provides customers with mixed environments the ability to extend VMware View Manager’s secure connection brokering capabilities to other platforms. This means users can access not only their virtual desktops hosted on VMware Infrastructure through View Manager, but also their physical PCs, blade PCs, and terminal servers. From a IT admin point of view it helps assign end users different types of desktops including Blade PCs, physicals PCs and terminal servers. IT also helps them manage these different types of desktops from the same management interface. Unified Access is useful to customers during the period when users are transitioning from physical desktops to virtual desktops. During this time, IT may want to give the users the ability to connect to both their physical desktops and their virtual desktops.
  • Another key new feature of VMware View Manager 3 is Virtual Printing. It provides the ability to print from virtual desktops to local devices without driver compatibility issues, bandwidth requirements or complicated user setup. Virtual printing provides Driver Free Printing which implies that end users and IT admins do not have to install or maintain any print drivers on Virtual Desktops. As part of the View 3.0 solution, a universal print driver is provided so there are no compatibility issues even when printing to a local printer from home. Additionally all necessary printers are automatically available to the end users.Virtual printing also helps Minimize network utilization up to 98% with its advanced print stream compression technology while providing High quality printing even over WAN connections or other sub-optimal networks. Virtual Printing supports key printing end user requirements such as Color or Black/white printing, Resolution adjustments, Duplex printing and support for multiple Paper Sizes to meet the flexible needs of end users and the enterprises.
  • With the release of View Manager 3 we have further enhanced the end user experience to enable better multimedia experience while providing ability to access local devices such as local printers, scanners and other USB peripherals.VMware View will be able to provide a rich end user experience to LAN and WAN users who have standardized on RDP. With Multi Media redirection, VMware View provides a rich end user experience to LAN and WAN users who have standardized on RDP. VMware View delivers a rich user experience across a wide variety of media types over RDP on both Windows XP Professional and Windows Vista in a virtual machine. Multimedia redirection also utilizes the processing power of the client, not the server, to deliver a multi-media experience. This results in a rich end-user experience with minimal impact to server and network, thus enabling further scalability.This Multi-media redirection feature in combination with the recently announced partnership with Teradici further demonstrates VMware’s commitment to actively support customer choice for the use of multiple protocol technologies to best suit their use cases.
  • For new customers, View is available in two end to end bundled SKUs. The first is View Enterprise and the second is View Premier. The View Enterprise bundle, formerly known as the VMware VDI bundle, contains the following components: VMware Infrastructure 3 Enterprise Edition (ESX Server), vCenter Management Server and the VMware View Manager. The View Premier bundle includes three components that are not available with the View Enterprise bundle: View Composer, Offline Desktop, and ThinApp. The bundles offer a great value for many customers, providing a total solution with a single SKU. However, it’s important that customers are aware that vCenter and the VI3 Enterprise licenses for desktop deployments are included in View Enterprise and View Premier bundles are restricted to desktop workloads only.
