Do you currently use Ghost or Microsoft SCCM to image your desktops? With Windows XP going End-of-Life, are you looking for an easier way to upgrade your desktops to Windows 7?
VMware Horizon Mirage provides a simpler, more effective way to tackle your IT challenges. Mirage is a management solution that separates each end-user device on your network into multiple layers – providing segmented, IT managed layers while still allowing for personalization on each device. Mirage enables portions of your end-user devices to be centrally controlled by IT while still allowing for – and even backing up – unique user files and device customization. In this way, Mirage can:
• Enable Seamless Windows 7 migrations in a fraction of the time it takes to physically touch PCs
• Enable fast, efficient recovery of thousands of unique desktops.• Quickly repair desktop issues without a full re-image – great for low bandwidth WANs.
• Centralized Image Management, with Virtual Desktop-like flexibility for physical desktops
• Allows end users to access any file on their endpoint from any web browser via Mirage File Portal, and also restore any file or directory on their own with just a few clicks on their PC.
