VMware ThinApp encapsulates applications inside a Virtual OS that transparently merges a virtual system environment with the real system environment.

William LamUnattended Deployment of vCloud Director Virtual Appliance – VMware just released vCloud Director 1.5 as a virtual appliance for the first time. This virtual appliance is not meant to be used in a production environment, but to help users easily deploy and evaluate vCloud Director. There is also an updated vCloud Director Evaluators Guide that goes along with the new vCD appliance that was released today which you should also check out.

Vladan SegetThe first connection to a desktop pool – The last post of this miniseries will show you the installation of VMware View Client software on my laptop and connection to the first available desktop which we configured in the previous lessons.  I want to say once again, this series of articles is really not a complete how-to guide on VMware View. There are some design trainings from VMware Education or there are also more in-depth VMware View DVD learning course available from TrainSignal.
