Il meglio di due mondi: come l’integrazione fra le soluzioni VMware e Dell EMC accelererà la trasformazione della forza lavoro

Mentre i nostri clienti sono alle prese con il percorso di trasformazione della forza lavoro, anche noi intraprendiamo un viaggio in parallelo, alla scoperta di nuovi modi per supportarli.

Le aziende cercano soluzioni che le aiutino ad accelerare la trasformazione digitale sia dal punto di vista dell&#rsquo;IT che della forza lavoro, trasformazione che oggi non può prescindere dall&#rsquo;adozione di tecnologie e processi capaci di garantire che il lavoro possa essere svolto con modalità nuove, in qualunque luogo e in qualsiasi momento. Abilitare tutto questo è fondamentale, ma desideriamo farlo senza dover aggiungere un ulteriore strato di complessità a costi eccessivi.

Ecco perché, nel nostro viaggio, stiamo collaborando con Dell EMC per migliorare le soluzioni di End-User Computing. Saremo in grado di aiutare i clienti a realizzare i vantaggi della trasformazione del posto di lavoro tramite tecnologie mobili, desktop e cloud. Insieme, supporteremo quelle aziende che si sentono ostacolate e stanche di gestire molteplici contratti di fornitori, SLA e console di gestione delle soluzioni, che contribuiscono tutti ad accrescere il TCO.

Cosa stiamo facendo esattamente?

In primo luogo, abbiamo integrato VMware AirWatch con Dell Client Command – gli strumenti di gestione dei sistemi client Dell - per estendere le funzionalità di gestione remota per le caratteristiche chiave del sistema hardware di Dell e migliorare AirWatch Unified Endpoint Management (UEM). Questa integrazione aiuta l&#rsquo;IT a valutare la sicurezza del BIOS e a intraprendere azioni per migliorare l’allineamento con i requisiti di conformità.

In secondo luogo, abbiamo voluto fornire un modo economico, chiaro e semplice per implementare soluzioni di virtualizzazione client con VDI Dell EMC powered by VMware Horizon, che offre una soluzione completa per la virtualizzazione desktop e delle applicazioni con un’infrastruttura ottimizzata di carico, software integrato e thin client Dell Wyse. I clienti possono sfruttare una sola soluzione pronta per essere implementata con tutti i componenti necessari per fornire desktop e applicazioni virtuali in metà dei passaggi e dei tempi rispetto alla distribuzione delle singole soluzioni.

In entrambi i casi, volevamo ridurre i costi; lo stiamo facendo agendo sul costo totale di gestione dei PC e riducendo per questi ultimi i costi di implementazione del software VDI. Ma non si tratta solo di costi, il nostro obiettivo è abbattere le barriere della gestione di software e hardware dei nostri clienti, supportando così le organizzazioni nel loro processo di trasformazione della forza lavoro.

&#rsquo;Microsoft Azure users now have access to genuine desktop as a service solution.&#rdquo;

That&#rsquo;s SiliconANGLE on our huge news this week: We&#rsquo;re delivering VMware Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure. By connecting Azure to the Horizon Cloud control plane, our joint customers are empowered with more flexibility to deliver virtual desktops and apps. Get the FAQs here.

&#rsquo;Our customers have their preference of public cloud offerings and should be able to choose the industry leader in desktop and app virtualization regardless of that cloud preference.&#rdquo;
—Dave Grant, VP of Product Marketing for VMware End-User Computing, at VMware Radius

Plus, using Horizon Cloud with on-premises infrastructure? Here&#rsquo;s what&#rsquo;s new for you.

The digital workspace just upped its IQ.

VMware also announced the acquisition of Apteligent this week and the integration of the mobile app intelligence solution into our digital workspace platform. Read the juicy details here.

&#rsquo;The Apteligent platform enables both mobile app developers and IT organizations to analyze mobile application performance in real time, enabling them to understand user behavior to address the issues that matter the most—and directly impact business and revenue.&#rdquo;
—Sumit Dhawan, VMware EUC SVP & GM of Desktop Products & Solutions

Forget stereotypes. We&#rsquo;re all Generation Digital.

Millennials aren&#rsquo;t the only generation demanding mobile technology at work. Employees of all ages recently said mobile tech makes them more productive (60%), more creative (45%) and more satisfied at work (53%). Read more in this new VMware Radius series.

It&#rsquo;s a &#rsquo;privilege&#rdquo; to meet you, VMware User Environment Manager 9.2.

User Environment Manager (UEM) essentially separates a user&#rsquo;s personality from the underlying Windows machine, said Andy Morris, virtualizing their preferences. Version 9.2 offers a cool new trick: User privilege elevation. Here&#rsquo;s what it does.

Plus, watch these six videos for a technical deep dive into UEM 9.2.

And IT lived happily ever after.

User satisfaction is up, and costs are down at Memorial Healthcare after the hospital deployed VMware NSX, VMware AirWatch and Horizon. Hear their digital clinical workspace story.

&#rsquo;I don&#rsquo;t think there&#rsquo;s much within our infrastructure that VMware hasn&#rsquo;t enabled.&#rdquo;

Horizon Cloud Service with On-Premises Infrastructure May 2017 Release Updates

There are several technical updates this quarter to VMware Horizon Cloud Service with On-Premises Infrastructure. For more details on this release, see the Horizon Cloud with On-Premises Infrastructure Release Notes.

Support for Cloud-Based Workspace ONE

With this release, we now support cloud-based deployments of VMware Workspace ONE. End users can access their VMware Horizon Cloud virtual desktops from the Workspace ONE application catalog and utilize single sign-on for authentication. We previously supported only on-premises deployments of Workspace ONE.

 

New Desktop Configuration – Performance (Enterprise Plus)

We have added a new desktop configuration option to better suit the needs of your power users. With Horizon Cloud with On-Premises Infrastructure, you can now deliver Performance (Enterprise Plus) Desktops, with an 8 vCPU and 16 GB vRAM configuration.

Smart Policies Support

You can now leverage Smart Policies in Horizon Cloud. Smart Policies allow you to have fine-grain control over a user&#rsquo;s desktop experience. You can dynamically enable, disable, or control access to user features in Horizon Cloud based on who the user is, and how they are accessing Horizon Cloud. Smart Policies were released as an integration between VMware Horizon 7 and VMware User Environment Manager in 2016.

For example, with Smart Policies, an administrator can decide to disable access to USB devices or to cut-and-paste from within the Horizon Client if users are attempting to access the Horizon Cloud environment from an untrusted or external network. You can also dynamically control display-protocol configurations based on the type of device that is being used.

Smart Policies in Horizon Cloud work the same as they do in Horizon 7. VMware Senior Product Line Manager Aaron Black wrote an excellent blog post pointing out some great use cases for Smart Policies. If you want to try out Smart Policies in your Horizon Cloud deployment, download the Reviewers Guide for View in VMware Horizon 7: Smart Policies.

vSphere 6.5 Support

We have added support for VMware vSphere 6.5 on certified vSAN Ready Nodes. For details on supported hardware models from partners, see the Horizon Cloud with On-Premises Infrastructure page.

SmartNode Consolidation

We have consolidated the management tier of a Horizon Cloud with On-Premises Infrastructure deployment into a single virtual appliance. The Horizon Cloud Node appliance manages all of the critical functions including App Volumes, Instant Clone creation, and communication with the Horizon Cloud control plane. This change was made to keep the Horizon Cloud Node footprint small and efficient. For more details, see Horizon Cloud with On-Premises Architecture.

Summary

With this release of Horizon Cloud with On-Premises Infrastructure, new features include

  • Support for cloud-based Workspace ONE
  • New desktop configuration: Performance (Enterprise Plus)
  • Smart Policies support
  • vSphere 6.5 support
  • Multi-region management
  • SmartNode consolidation

Horizon Cloud with On Premises Infrastructure continues to add new functionality on a regular basis. For more information, see Horizon Cloud Service with On-Premises Infrastructure.
