Chapter 12. VMware View 5.1

At the launch of this book, VMware View 5.0 was being superseded by the VMware View 5.1 release, and despite being a .1 release, the VMware View team added a significant number of features that improve the VMware View performance, scalability, and user experience.

This chapter splits the new features into five main areas as follows:

  • Platform
  • User experience and client
  • Management and administration
  • Persona management
  • Security

Platform features

The platform feature enhancements in VMware View 5.1 are focused on making the storage requirements less dramatic. As a significant portion of this book has been dedicated to streamlining and optimizing the storage requirements, the improvements in VMware View 5.1 are quite welcome.
