VMware Mirage 4.4 was released in March 2014! This latest release of Mirage introduces several new features. Mirage Edge Server is one of the most exciting ones. With Mirage Edge Server, remote end users can securely connect their devices back to the corporate network, where Horizon Mirage is centrally located, without going through a VPN. Saving this extra step creates a non-disruptive experience for those remote end users.
In this blog, we would like to share some guidelines and best practices for deploying and using the Mirage Edge Server. We will cover the following topics:
- Topology for Mirage with Mirage Edge Server and remote clients
- Mirage Edge Server installation steps and best practices, for administrators
- Mirage Client installation, and troubleshooting on remote devices, for remote end users
- Centralizing remote endpoints, for remote end users
