Managing Windows 10 with VMware User Environment Manager

With the introduction of Windows 10, Microsoft’s new philosophy is for each user to manage his or her own desktop and that every user has his or her own dedicated physical device. All data and settings in Windows 10 are tied to the local device.

This also means that Microsoft does not provide ways of managing and roaming many of Windows 10 settings, such as the Start Menu and File Type Associations.

This blog describes how to work around these limitations and use VMware User Environment Manager to get back the seamless user experience every user expects with non-persistent VDI environments. Continue reading

[Video] 2017 Tech Trend Alert: Explore the Future of Augmented Reality at Work

“There is a divergence that’s happening in the consumer and enterprise use cases, where AR (augmented reality) is supposed to be content overlaid on the real world. In the enterprise use cases, you’re actually seeing more and more AR applications that deliver contextually relevant data but not an overlay on top of the real world.” —Jay Kim, APX Labs

One of the biggest 2017 tech trends is predicted to be augmented reality (AR). We saw this burgeoning trend in 2016 on a global scale with the release of Pokémon Go, a smartphone gaming app that shows animated characters overlaid within the player’s real-world surroundings. For businesses, AR is much more than gaming; AR has the potential to completely transform processes, such as manufacturing, supply chain, medical services, retail and so much more.

In the video below, watch experts Jay Kim of APX Labs and Bhavesh Kumar of VMware explore the powerful 2017 tech trend of AR at work.

The $28/Month Desktop is Real—Going Virtual with Horizon on VxRail

Hyper-converged solutions are rapidly building a reputation for delivering the lowest total cost of ownership for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), with reasons like faster time to value and VMware Horizon on VxRail TCO VDI coststhe ability to rapidly scale at reducing cost increments. This recently published whitepaper goes into detail around just what kinds of costs and savings you can come to expect from such a deployment. It also shows how you can achieve per-user costs as low as $28 per month—covering infrastructure, licenses and administrative expenses.

Read Free: Extending EUC Cost Leadership with VMware Horizon on VxRail

In this whitepaper, we look at the cost of deploying virtual desktops and applications on VxRail versus deployment on traditional “build-your-own” VDI infrastructure. We also compare the costs and returns of deploying virtual desktops with traditional, physical desktops. I won’t give everything away, but the analysis shows that virtual desktops always help customers save money over physical desktops.

VxRail helps customers maximize their savings in:

  • Project costs: cost to plan and deploy the environment
  • Operational costs: cost to administer the environment
  • Data center facility costs: costs to power and cool

VxRail comes out ahead in two other areas not explicitly captured in the whitepaper. Continue reading

Bulletproof RDS: 30 Ways to Secure Remote Desktop Services
