Introduced at the annual VMworld conference in Las Vegas, VMware View 5 will continue to help IT organizations empower a more agile, productive and connected enterprise by enabling a better desktop.

Built on VMware vSphere, the industry’s most widely deployed virtualization platform, VMware View 5 will simplify IT manageability and control, while providing end users the highest fidelity experience regardless of WAN or LAN connections. View 5 delivers protocol enhancements that will provide as much as 75 percent bandwidth improvement over LAN and WAN connections, advanced support of 3D graphics, scalable unified communications integration for voice and video media services with industry leaders including Avaya and Mitel and virtual desktop personalization with integrated persona management.

Centralized, automated desktop management provided by VMware View 5 will enable the scalable management of tens of thousands of virtual desktops through a single console. VMware View reduces operational costs by as much as 50 percent while increasing availability, reliability and security levels far beyond levels of traditional PCs.

Enhancements and new features in VMware View 5 will deliver elastic, desktop services from your cloud for ultimate control and flexibility for user experience, administration and service levels, including:

PCoIP Optimization Controls – VMware View with PCoIP will provide end-users with top performance regardless of network conditions. New PCoIP optimization controls, including client side caching and disable build to lossless, will decrease bandwidth usage by up to 75 percent and increases network user density on both LAN and WAN connections.

User Experience and Performance Monitoring – PCoIP Extension Services will improve enduser session management and support for IT administrators with new session stats and analysis capabilities across 23 individual session stats including General, Imaging, Network and USB statistics for any PCoIP session – enabled via existing tools supporting WMI with no additional console to buy or manage and allowing IT to quickly identify and resolve bottlenecks or issues.

PCoIP Continuity Services – Improves experience for roaming users with automatic detection, recovery and auto-connecting of sessions within 30 seconds of lost network when roaming unreliable networks, WiFi or 3G, and reducing impact to end user workflow by eliminating the need for user intervention.
