VMware’s Product Manager Jay Tomlin who’s responsible for VMware Mirage has published an interesting read on the VMware End User Computing blog. He’s asking the question: “Why is it still a challenge to deploy Windows images to an end point?”. There are a few reasons for that! Check the article to get an deeper insight.
Here’s a quick overview of the new functionality in version 3.6:
VMware Mirage v3.6 introduces the following features and improvements:
- Base Layer (BL) Provisioning – Prepares a new device to be part of the organization by cleaning up the device files, applying an existing BL, and then seamlessly migrating the contents of the endpoint to the Mirage Server (as in Centralize Endpoint).
- Fusion support – Mirage supports managing desktops running in a Fusion hypervisor for Macs.
- Streaming enhancements
- During Restore processing, you can view the streaming status of each downloading file. You are notified if a file you try to open is not finished downloading, and advised when that file becomes ready for use.
- Performance improvements were implemented which promote faster response time and enhanced user experience.
- Scalability improvements – Faster management console response time in larger scale CVD configurations.
- Reconnecting a device to a CVD (Force Upload) – A device that has lost its synchronization for any reason can be reconnected to its CVD and can continue backing up incremental changes as before.
- Default Policy Auto Selection
- In endpoint assignment wizard streams, a default Upload Policy (predefined in Security Settings) automatically applies to the endpoint if no other policy is specifically selected.
- Configuration tabs are more logically organized – Upload Policy selection moved from CVD Auto Creation tab to General tab.

I’ve just seen that the VMware Mirage website is up!
Today VMware has announced loads of new stuff in the End User Computing space! The Horizon Suite is a great step into the Post PC Era or how Steve Herrod said: The Multi Device Era. The press release you’ll find when following the link will give you a great overview of all announcements VMware made.
Just before VMworld 2009 in Europe VMware acquired Trango, a company which developed a hypervisor for mobile phones. A year after they came up with Horizon Mobile aka MVP which is a Tier 2 hypervisor based on Android which makes it possible to run a second Android instance in a virtual machine. A great solution for companies who think about BYOD for their employees but with a restriction: The device must run Android! Today there was a new video published on Youtube which shows the Horizon Mobile solution for iOS the first time. Check this out – Awesome!
