VMWorld Session Review – EUC1305 What’s New and What’s Next for VMware View

If you do VDI this is a must see video.  I don’t believe VDI is the future of BYOD but there are very strong arguments for VDI in the enterprise especially as organizations migrate from Windows XP to Windows 7.  If you are in a large enterprise and have to make a decision if to spend several million of dollars deploying Windows 7 versus a similar investment in VDI, the argument for VDI is strong indeed.  This video had a lot of practical information on the improvements of View 5.1 over View 5.0.  One of the improvements I’ve wondered why VMware hasn’t provided seems like a simple one – an End user Web Portal.  This is something Citrix has had available since Metaframe XP.  The other demonstrated the tight integration between View and vSphere.  The ability to cache in the memory of an ESXi server the common reads of the Windows boot session yield a 80% decrease in disk I/O.  That can save a great deal of money and pain in any VDI implementation.
