Today we are proud to announce that VMware has acquired the assets of Alpharetta, GA based RTO Software adding their technology and talented people to the VMware View team. For those of you not familiar with RTO software they are well known for their Virtual Profiles, PinPoint and Discover products which help IT organizations simplify desktop deployments while providing end-users with a rich, robust and flexible experience.
The RTO technologies add a critical component to the View solution providing the foundation for robust persona management. With persona management end-user specific information such as user data, settings and application access is separated from the desktop image enabling increased flexible access and portability of the desktop service. This integration will provide end-users with a consistent user experience while IT organizations will benefit from simplified and optimized management of these assets.
