VMware View 5.1: Install, Configure, Manage (VIEW)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline

Course Overview

IT Departments are being inundated with an expanding number of devices on the network (sometimes 2 or 3 per person, including tablets and smart phones). This expanded scope of responsibility further drives the business case for a Virtual Desktop approach to providing and securing access to corporate resources, allowing IT to focus on delivering virtualized desktops to client devices, rather than focusing on making applications and data security work for every device uniquely. VMware VIEW is a leading desktop virtualization solution, leveraging VMware's vSphere platform. VIEW enables IT to manage more devices with less struggle, and includes complete integration of Persona Manager to physical desktops, making for a more seamless post-PC era user experience.

This hands-on training course builds your skills in the VMware View™ suite of products: VMware View™ Manager, View Composer, and VMware ThinApp®. This course is based on the new View 5.1 and ThinApp 4.7 releases. These improved versions allow for ease of managment, better performance, and the following enhancements and new features:

  • VMware View Storage Accelerator
  • VMware View Composer Array Integration (VCAI)
  • VMware View Persona Management (includes physical desktops now)
  • VMware vCenter™ Operations for VMware View
  • RADIUS Support (supporting 2-factor authentication)
