Desktop and App Virtualization Reimagined

Support Workplace Mobility

Gone are the days of client/server computing where Windows ruled the day and end users were tasked to do their work from one device and one location. Today, end users are leveraging new types of devices for work, accessing Windows applications alongside non-Windows-based applications and are more mobile than ever.


But managing and delivering services to end users with traditional PC-centric tools has become time consuming and costly. VMware desktop and application virtualization solutions provide IT with a new streamlined approach to deliver, protect, and manage Windows or Linux desktops and applications on premises or in the cloud, while containing costs and ensuring end users can work anytime, anywhere across any device.
