Reading Time: 3 minutes After five months the GA of VMware Horizon View 5.3, now VMware announce officially the new VMware Horizon 6.0 with much emphasis on the features of Horizon View. In the VMware End-User Computing Blog there are several post about it, but of course there are also several other blog post. Will be an impressive innovation? Will be the year of VDI? Can simple change some rules and equilibrium in the EUC world? There are of course several new features, but I think that it’s mostly and evolution than a revolution.

Reading Time: 5 minutes The new VMware vSphere 5.5 has some interesting new features and scalability properties that make interesting for each new environment, but also for existing customers (considering that the license key remain still the same of the 5.x feature). So could make sense start using directly this version instead of the 5.1 and upgrade all existing environment to the new version 5.5? Like each new version you have to make some consideration first and especially before starting the upgrade procedure.

Reading Time: 3 minutes Duncan Epping has wrote (on 2010) a nice post with the meaning of several, not too obvious, VMware acronyms used sometime in some product name, but usually in the internal process or file name.

Reading Time: 4 minutes During the VMware NOW – Live Launch Event with Pat Gelsinger (VMware CEO) and other executives there where several news also with new products. The VMware vision announced (or confirmed if you prefer) during the last Partner Exchange was all around three main points: Software Defined Datacenter, Hybrid Cloud and End User Computing. Most news (or the most important) are around the first point, considering that the several previous announces have already covered the Hybrid Cloud strategy and that the EUC will be probably covered better during the European VMworld edition.
