Today VMware announced the general availability of a new addition to their Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) — VMware Virtual Desktop Manager 2 (VDM2). Some of the new features of VMD2 include:
- SSL secured connections
- Second-factor authentication with RSA SecureID
- Integration with ActiveDirectory for authentication and authorization
- Create persistent and non-persistent desktop pools for groups of users
- Increased clustering support for VDM2
The release of VDM2 continues VMware’s dominance of the virtual desktop market. With broad support from independent hardware vendors (IHVs), VDI is finally beginning to evolve into a product not only worth using, but one that businesses deploying numerous desktops should not be without.
