Today at VMworld 2011, VMware announced a new strategic collaboration with Samsung to deliver virtual desktops to mobile devices and enable a new class of dual persona mobile devices.

The companies intend to collaborate by integrating both VMware View, the industry’s leading desktop virtualization platform, and VMware Horizon Mobile (both announced this week) with Samsung mobile devices, including Galaxy S II and Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 8.9 – delivering a new way to work for customers that enables seamless and secure use of employee-owned IT devices for accessing both work and personal data.

The companies' new collaboration will include:

* Integration with VMware Horizon Mobile – bringing work and personal data into a single device, VMware Horizon Mobile and Samsung smartphones will enable enterprises to securely manage an employee's connected mobile workspace (email, applications, data etc.) in isolation from their personal environment (email, applications, data etc.), providing enterprise IT with greater security for corporate data while allowing end users to have the privacy and control of their different mobile environments on a single device

* Integration with VMware View 5 – simplifying IT manageability and control, VMware View 5 and Samsung mobile devices will deliver access to corporate data from a centralized infrastructure with a high-fidelity experience for users needing applications, unified communications and 3-D graphics for real-world productivity on demand, from any location

"VMware's end-user computing solutions enable customers to break free from more than two decades of complex, device-centric computing, and deliver a more user-centric experience for the connected enterprise," says Parag Patel, VP, Global Strategic Alliances, VMware. "Working with Samsung, a leading provider of Android smart devices, our goal is to help IT organizations retain control and security of corporate data and applications while enabling end users to utilize their own wireless devices."
