VMware Mirage™ provides unified desktop image management for physical desktops across distributed environments.
Dynamic Layering for Endpoint and Application Management
Manage PCs, or Horizon persistent virtual desktops, as a set of logical layers owned by either IT or the end-user. Update IT-managed layers while maintaining end-user files and personalization. Easily deploy applications or VMware ThinApp® packages to any collection of end users with Mirage application layering technology.
Automated Backup and Full System Recovery
Store full desktop snapshots in the data center with continual synchronization of IT or end-user initiated changes. Recover partial or full desktops when needed with centrally stored desktop images and periodic endpoint snapshots. Allow self-service file recovery for end users and follow-me access to files across devices for enhanced productivity.
Simplified Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 Migrations
Accelerate the most common approaches to Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 migrations: upgrading an existing Windows XP device to Windows 7, upgrading Windows 7 to Windows 8.1, or migrating an end user's profile and files to a new Windows 7 or 8.1 machine.
Designed for Distributed Environments
Mirage Branch Reflectors allow IT to download any updates once from the Mirage server and allows peer-to-peer updates from the Branch Reflectors to other Mirage clients in the branch office. Manage devices at scale with minimal infrastructure and controlled bandwidth.
Easy Extension of PC Lifecycle Management (PCLM) Tools
Complement existing PCLM tools with dynamic layering, backup and recovery, and rollback options to minimize helpdesk support. Extend existing PCLM tools by supporting mass OS deployments with just a few clicks. Use API extensibility and reporting framework to help manage devices more efficiently.
Bring Your Own Desktop (BYOD)
Install Mirage-managed images natively onto Windows PCs, or onto Fusion® Pro virtual desktops on Windows, Mac, or Linux desktops and laptops. Mirage allows end users with BYO PCs to leverage local compute resources for online and offline productivity.
