Each year is the year of VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure)… But it’s really true? Yes and no… VDI is just a part of the End User Computing (EUC) area: can solve several user cases, but not all. Other solutions will still exist and maybe also they are still growing, just because the entire EUC area is growing. Also although desktop virtualization has become much simpler and more commonplace as virtualization technologies have evolved, it still poses some difficulties that can be a huge stumbling block for many companies. While some of these may be technical, […]
I’ve got the opportunity to read one new book about the Horizon View solution: VMware Horizon View Essentials from Peter von Oven (the co-author of other VMware Horizon books, like VMware Horizon Workspace Essentials). This book is not from VMware Press, but from a different editor, that is Packt Publishing and has several interesting books (really a lot on virtualization and still growing) and actually has several interesting authors (and reviewers) for those books from the VMware’s community. The Packt’s Essentials series has a specific learning pathway and level: fast paced, concentrated introductions showing the quickest […]
VMware has announced and released Horizon for View 6.0 several months ago. I’ve already discussed about the news of this product (remote apps and app pools is probably one of the most evident).

During the recent VMware Partner Exchange 2013 I’ve got the opportunity to meet and discuss with Scott Bennett, Sales Director Northern-and Southern Europe at Liquidware Labs. I’ve already posted about the latest products release and how their solutions could be interesting for a VDI enviroment. However, it was interesting to talk directly with their vision, proposition, position, but also of their point of view regarding the evolution of virtualization ecosystem in relation to the evolution of VMware and its products (which in some cases go to limit ecosystem market).
Liquidware Labs has recently released the ProfileUnity FlexApp™ version 5.5: this new version includes several big updates for ProfileUnity such as FlexApp Department Installed Applications, a fresh new Admin Interface, automated setup with Microsoft Active Directory, and numerous other significant new features:
One year ago, I’ve described how to disable the certificate warning in the Windows View Client 5.0, by using GPO or a direct change in the local registry (on the client). Now, with the new version 5.1 of the View Client there is a new way client side:
