VMware Mirage or View?

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

Hi folks! So a lot of people rushed out to embrace VDI when it first became popular and quickly realized it wasn’t for them. I’ve heard of a lot of pilots that went south. These are usually the case when people did not do the proper due diligence before implementing VDI (regardless of software vendor of choice).

However, with careful planning, you can implement VDI, and implement Mirage for areas where VDI just doesn’t make sense. So we all grasp the concept of VDI – strip down the physical hardware to the bare essentials and let the back end do all the work. But what about if you have physical high performance processing requirements?

VMware Horizon Mirage is a good play here. Mirage is designed with the physical endpoint in mind, and is also designed to work offline. Addressing the two major concerns in a traditional VDI environment (performance and offline use).

Here is a link with a table that shows you the differences of each solution from Josh Townsend who sums it up quite nicely.
