Just-in-time desktops? Really? Are you kidding me?
What Is Instant Clone Technology?
Instant Clone Technology is all about delivering VDI desktops just in time. For those of you who follow project names, think of vmFork and Project Fargo.

In 2013, the phrase “every business is a digital business” sparked an “aha!” moment for every company, across every industry. Two years later, where are we now? As companies reach digital maturity, what’s next?

One of the best parts of the year has been hearing firsthand from our customers about how they drive desktop transformation with VMware. During VMworld US and VMware Europe, we heard from more than 15 customers, including Auburn University, Societe Generale, Southern New Hampshire University, Telecom Italia and Thales, about their desktop transformation journey. The VMware team is blown away by our customers’ ability to innovate at such as a rapid pace and change the way their industry does business.
