VMware News Releases
Partner Support for VMware View 3
"View 3 will enable our VAR Partners to play a 'trusted advisor' role with their clients, helping them contain costs in the deployment, maintenance and security of end user desktops. Datacenters can contain software provisioning and maintenance costs by pushing down patches, new releases and new applications to any mix of desktop devices (thin client, laptops or desktops) which are best suited to end user needs, rather than having to physically touch each device. Deploying thin clients into call centers, for example, will also reduce power requirements and help increase security by eliminating local storage media device access to company data. Organizations can also invest and manage desktop deployments or migrations incrementally, rather than a costly 'rip and replace’ strategy."
—Tom Zorn, Executive Vice President, Alternative Technology
“Cisco and VMware are working together to improve the network performance of desktop virtualization so that our mutual customers can take advantage of the powerful benefits of our joint solutions.
