Managing desktop software builds has always been a time consuming task. Having to build and maintain multiple different images for the various use cases and hardware platforms in an organization is a complex full-time job for IT admins everywhere. Delivering resilience and recovery solutions are also things that become more of a challenge when you step outside of the data center. VMware Horizon Mirage can help with all of this and more.
VMware Horizon Mirage Essentials will show you how to deliver a complete centralized image management solution by taking you through a number of Mirage use cases, each one designed to solve the challenges faced by an IT department in managing a desktop environment.
This book starts by introducing the concepts behind VMware Horizon Mirage, how they work, and how they map onto the everyday tasks faced by a desktop administrator. It will then follow three themes, manage, migrate, and protect, and will look in detail at the different features and functionality offered by Mirage in delivering against these themes to the desktop estate.
You will also learn how to design, install, and configure your own Mirage infrastructure, whether for production or a pilot deployment, covering core features such as single image management, how to migrate old operating systems such as Windows XP to Windows 7, and how to migrate to new hardware platforms.
VMware Horizon Mirage Essentials will walk you through the process of delivering single image management to your entire desktop estate, regardless of whether it’s physical or virtual.
