VMware Announces vClient Initiative to Expand Virtual Desktops to Universal Clients

"With today's product announcement of VMware View as a universal client solution, VMware is extending its thought leadership in desktop virtualization by adding client virtualization to provide centralized management to decentralized users," said Mark Bowker, analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. "VMware is positioning itself to lead this new category by providing a combined client and server desktop virtualization solution on a single platform. By combining client virtualization with new products and features such as VMware View Composer and offline desktops, VMware is showing its commitment to providing customers with a universal client that delivers the best end user experience while minimizing costs and simplifying management of desktops and applications."

VMware's desktop virtualization infrastructure is already gaining traction in the market and delivering benefits in large-scale deployments, with many customers running thousands of VMware virtual desktops. VMware's vClient initiative will provide customers with even greater ease-of-use, reliability, flexibility and security. Customers are lining up in support of the vision and today's announcements:

"Jewelry Television provides our customers with a fast, easy and convenient way to shop for fine jewelry and gemstones," said Wesley Baker, VMware architect, Jewelry Television. "Our online shopping site runs around the clock, and VMware's desktop virtualization gives us the flexibility and reliability we need to support 24/7 operations."

"VMware virtual desktops have streamlined the deployment and management of desktops to our staff, and we're confident that its robust desktop technology will keep our patient information safe," said Chris House, senior network analyst, MetroHealth. "From doctors and nurses accessing medical records from any thin client workstation, to technicians who view X-rays, to professional staff accessing any of our 450+ applications, all of our users on VMware virtual desktops."

VMware also works with numerous ecosystem partners to embrace and extend its client virtualization solution:

"The experience with first joint customers of VMware and Fujitsu Siemens Computer shows that IT organizations can dramatically increase the quality of service to their PC users," said Dr. Joseph Reger, chief technology officer, Fujitsu Siemens Computers. "Under the umbrella of 'Dynamic IT for Workplaces,' Fujitsu Siemens Computers has created pre-integrated solution stacks based on VDI and complementary technologies and services for consulting, design, implementation and operation, as well as services to calculate the return on investment. This is in order to help customers benefit earlier from innovative VMware technologies, to decrease time and risk for first projects and to help overcome lack of skills."

"Customers are increasingly using virtualization to deliver lower costs and reduced risks to the business, as virtualization moves from being a tactical technology towards becoming a key transformation strategy," said Roberto Moctezuma, vice president, desktop solutions Organization, HP. "HP has a history of collaborating with VMware to develop products and services across our portfolio that not only help customers realize the full value of VMware virtualization, but also help them accelerate the growth of their businesses."

"Thin client computing has promised the benefits of increased data security, decreased IT spending and environmental savings," said Marc Hafner, vice president, departmental servers, NEC Corporation of America "NEC supports VMware View as part of our Virtual PC Center, which is designed to break the barriers to adoption by delivering a complete solution that can truly begin to replace traditional PCs."
