VMworld 2012

VMware announced some exciting developments in their platform here this week! Following are some of my notes:
  • VMware is focused on an annual update strategy. This year they announced vSphere 5.1.
  • They listened to their customers and have simplified the licensing that was introduced with vSphere 5.
  • They introduced Horizon Suite, which includes Octopus, ThinApp, AppBlast, Horizon Application Manager, and Horizon Mobile.
I'm especially excited about the Horizon Suite. I saw it manage Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS devices very nicely and with full IT policy strengths. It uses Active Directory user-based policy management, which means a user's experience will be the same on all of his/ her devices! Very nice, indeed.

VMware continues to lead in virtualization.
