VMware View 5 – Released!!!

ViewDesignToday see's the public release of VMware View 5. I've been fortunate enough to have been using this in Beta for a while, and I must say, I am impressed (again). Key features of this release are:

Optimized and Adaptive Experience

VMware View with PCoIP display protocol delivers high-performance desktop experience across the LAN or WAN. Built for desktop delivery, VMware View with PCoIP dynamically adjusts to network conditions to enable the most productive environment. Optimization controls enable IT administrators to customize protocol settings to adjust bandwidth use and session density by user, use case or available network conditions.

Unified Communications Integration

End-users experience an integrated softphone and desktop experience that follows them while the integration architecture ensures quality of service for VOIP and virtual desktop performance.

Personalized Experience
