Overview

VMware View 5 for the Desktop

DELIVER HIGH-VALUE VIRTUAL DESKTOP INFRASTRUCTURE AND A SUPERIOR USER EXPERIENCE

Companies that have already realized the benefits of VMware server virtualization are now discovering that

VMware View 5 offers equally powerful opportunities on the client side. VMware View 5 is a comprehensive

enterprise-class solution. But, until now, crucial information about it has been scattered throughout dozens

of technical documents. In VMware View 5, leading desktop virtualization expert Paul O’Doherty combines

this critical information with deep insights and best practices from his extensive enterprise deployment

experience.

O’Doherty walks through every step, from the earliest planning phases through configuration,

implementation, and management. He addresses important considerations ranging from changes to

end-user experience through support and performance management. You’ll learn how to plan and smoothly

stage virtual desktop infrastructure deployments, and avoid pitfalls associated with latency, scalability,

storage, and networking.

Whether you’re an architect, system administrator, or virtualization consultant, this guide’s proven

techniques can help you dramatically improve IT productivity as you build environments that are far more

flexible and easier to manage.
