Horizon Mirage 4.3 Released!

After quite a long radio silence i can tell you that since i’ve been working behind the scenes with Horizon Mirage, i am pretty excited about the announcement of the new 4.3 version!

This version provides the following new features and improvements:

  • The IT manager can now manage VMware View full clone desktops with Horizon Mirage. The IT manager can send image updates to View desktops, while keeping the user applications and data intact.
  • A new policy enables Horizon Mirage to work only with base and app layer updates, without uploads, reducing the overhead of the Horizon Mirage steady state on the end user’s machine.
  • Using Windows 7 migration with layers:
    • The IT manager can send app layers during the migration process.
    • Endpoints receive the base layer and the app layers in a single batch, and require only one reboot.
    • When the IT manager is following the progress of the migration, the app layers assignments under the Windows 7 migration task can also be followed.
  • The new web console supports the Protection Manager role, which has primary responsibility to ensure that the devices are protected and synchronized with the CVDs.
  • The dashboard for the Protection Manger role includes:
    • Last known upload errors, to help the IT manager focus on the main issues that are preventing users from uploading their data.
    • Centralization trends, to enable the IT manager to view the current state of the endpoint centralization process and determine how long this phase will take to finish.
    • Unprotected endpoints, to enable the IT manager to view, for a specific time period, which endpoints did not complete the upload.
    • Network disconnects, to enable the IT manager to view if there are slow remote branches that suffer from network disconnects that affect user uploads.

I’ll try to share my findings with this product soon as i did with Horizon Workspace.

Stay tuned!
