VMware View 4.0 + PCoIP

October 16, 2009 — Leave a comment

I have spent quite a lot of time this week reading up and sitting in on webinars regarding VMware’s soon to be released View 4.0 with the inclusion of the software version of PCoIP. I have been really impressed with the demonstration’s and what is being promised and can’t wait to get my hands on it to take a look. I wanted to point out a couple of resources regarding view 4. The first is a blog post by Scott Davis, VMware View Chief Technology Officer and can be found here >> http://blogs.vmware.com/view-point/2009/10/why-pcoip-is-the-best-protocol-for-virtual-desktops.html This post discusses the workings of PCoIP and why and how it works.

The second is a video that was released last week demonstrating VMware View 4.0’s ability to stream video to a thin client and handle multi monitors using of the PCoIP technology. For many of our customers and especially schools, the ability to watch streaming media on a view desktop will mean they can now start looking seriously at desktop virtualisation on a large scale instead of just small scale deployments.
