Well, OK – I guess now that View4 has been released you could say this is a little old hat. But… much I what I write about in View3 is much the same in View4! Honestly! Someday I plan to revisit this series of articles probably when VMware 4.5 is released… By then VMware will have their PCoIP protocol working with the Security Server, and much better integration with ThinApp.
This was originally wrote for the vSphere4 book that recently became available on Amazon. But it never made the book because of length of the whole book, and difficulty of finding a good home for a chapter VDI.
