On behalf of everyone on the End-User Computing (EUC) team at VMware, I’m proud to bring you another exciting product announcement from EUC.
View 5.3.1 was introduced early in the first quarter of 2014 to support Virtual SAN 5.5 GA. As you may have read recently, VMware announced the release of Horizon 6 (with View). With this release, we are continuing to expand the Virtual SAN integration capabilities delivered by Horizon. The Virtual SAN integration capabilities introduced in Horizon 6 deliver the following benefits to our customers:
- Reduces CAPEX cost of storage by up to 50% when compared to the cost of using an external shared storage array based on magnetic disks
- A package that contains both View and Virtual SAN
- A simple three-step setup and management workflow
- Performance capabilities similar to that of an all flash/all SSD external storage system
