Newsletter February 2015

Another fine day in February.

A couple new entries in the Newsletter category.


View Cloud Pod Architecture

Pretty cool architecture surrounding methodologies to provide geographic View desktops.  Read more here.  https://pubs.vmware.com/horizon-view-60/topic/com.vmware.ICbase/PDF/horizon-view-60-cloud-pod-architecture.pdf

Quick rundown is that it provides global entitlement.  User in LA accesses their View Desktop in a local datacenter then plans a trip to London, UK.  Enters the office there and is able to access their desktop through the authentication locally in London.

Prioritization of a global pool.  It builds a global pool but allows a Home Pool for localized access. Many cool ideas and many cool opportunities.


App Volumes 
If you get a chance to test and deploy AppVolumes by VMware, I highly recommend it.  It is simple and provides a simple approach to deploying apps within a VDI environment.

http://www.vmware.com/products/appvolumes.  It took me an afternoon to have the environment setup and one deployed app running on my entire VDI test lab.

Till next time...
