VMware Unveils Workplace Suite and NVIDIA Partnership For Chromebooks 60

Gamoid writes At VMworld today, VMware introduced the Workplace Suite, a platform for securely delivering applications and content across desktops and mobile devices from the cloud. The really cool part, though, is a partnership with Google and NVIDIA to deliver even graphics-intensive Windows applications on a Chromebook. From the article: "The new VMware Workplace Suite takes advantage of three existing VMware products: Tools for application, device, and content management as well as secure cloud file storage that comes from the January acquisition of enterprise mobile management company AirWatch; VMware Horizon for desktop-as-a-service; and brand-new acquisition CloudVolumes for app delivery.

    Is heavily marketed and works like absolute dog shit.

    Yes, they have a great hypervisor. The rest of their products? Total, and utter shit. They can't compete on so many fronts they are running to provide anything with "Cloud" in it so people buy it. vCloud Automation Center. AirWatch. CloudVolumes. Horizon.

    It's going to be interesting to watch a company who sat on its laurels while the cloud rush started and now is running to try to catch up.

    HIPAA, PCI, Sarbanes Oxley, Et. al. I'm seeing more and more call to implement ways to control data in the age of bring-your-own-device and mobile workforces. If a company can let a user work from the coffee shop but still keep the actual data inside the datacenter, then a thin-client solution becomes more and more attractive.

UNIX is many things to many people, but it's never been everything to anybody.
