VMworld Day 2 Announcements (so far) 

  • During Steve Herrod's keynote, new updates to VMware Horizon, to extend the benefits of its identity, policy and entitlement engine to virtualized Windows applications and connected mobile workspaces. 
  • Herrod also announced VMware View 5, which will simplify IT manageability and control, while providing a high fidelity desktop virtualization experience. 
  • A preview of VMware AppBlast was shared, which is a tool that can deliver applications of any sort, to any client that speaks HTML5. AppBlast is now available to check out in the VMworld Labs.
