VMware View 5.1 new features


Yesterday VMware announced some of the new features of VMware View 5.1, its Virtual Desktop Infrastructure platform. This version is the follow up of version 5 which was released last year.

The most important features can be summarized as follows:

  • View Storage Accelerator, already announced for View 5.0 and lifted at the last moment, this feature is borrowed from vSphere’s Content Based Read Cache (CBRC) and basically caches frequently used disk blocks into VDI host’s RAM avoiding frequent reading of the same information from central storage.
  • View Persona Management is now extended to physical machine with the main purpose of VDI migrations or OSes migrations.
  • vCenter Operations (vCOPs) Manager for View is a new version, optimized for virtual desktop deployment, that provides end-to-end real time monitoring of desktop and users. Already announced at VMworld Europe last year now includes a very requested feature: the ability to monitor PCoIP performance.
  • Cluster nodes, support for 32 cluster nodes when using NFS
