I got a request this week to assist in sizing XD 5.6 on a VNX,
The partner wanted to use CITRIX MCS and PVDISK..
For the VMware VIEW admins, think about non-persistent pool AND the ability to let the end users to install their applications, this way, you can still maintain one image but also let the users install apps, pretty cool. Here’s a video that shows it in details..
This citrix technology came from a company called RingCube that acquired last year and now it’s an integral part of XD 5.6
so what will VMware VIEW users do?
Well, very soon (May 16,2012), a similar solution will be offered by liquidware labs with a new product called FlexApp
