VMware WSX TP2

without comments

A few month ago VMware introduced a new technology called VMware WSX, a way to deliver a full workplace into a web browser and I’m not talking about AppBlast here. Yesterday there was an announcement about the Tech Preview 2 for this cool solution. So what changed?

  • New Windows Installer (Former version was Linux only)
  • Even greater performance (Rendering on the screen was optimized)
  • Retina on iOS! (Retina Mode for switching to greater user experience on iOS devices)
  • Speech to text on iOS (The microphone button on the iOS keyboard helps you to use your voice to enter text)
  • UI Improvements
  • Bugfixes

WSX might change the virtual desktop game!

without comments

Yesterday Duncan Epping published a new article about the VMware Workstation and Fusion Tech Preview. The most interesting part for me was WSX, a new technology in those products which makes it possible to access the VM desktop via a standard web browser. WSX makes use of some web technologies such as Web Sockets and HTML Canvas with a lightweight web server in the background. You can find a more detailed description of this technology here: http://blog.chipx86.com/2012/03/13/wsx-virtual-machines-in-your-browser/

My first thought when I read the article was: How could that new technology work with VMware View?

The article mentioned above also describes the playback of a Youtube video via WSX which was even more interesting to me. That really sounds like an additional option for delivering a desktop to an enduser without having a client software installed. And if this works with a full desktop it should also work with “only” applications. Is Project AppBlast already here? What are your thoughts?
