VMware® Horizon Mirage™

Enabling a new way for IT to deliver and manage Windows desktop environments

Welcome to the Horizon Mirage Community!

WELCOME to the VMware Horizon Mirage community!

 

 

High Level Feature Highlights

VMware Mirage offers a unique solution for managing physical laptops and desktops that combined centralized management for IT and local execution for end users.  When Mirage is installed on a Windows PC, it centralizes a complete virtual copy of that end point to the data center and keeps it synchronized.  That synchronization includes changes from the user's Windows PC getting uploaded to the data center, but also changes from IT getting downloaded and applied directly to the user's Windows PC as well.  Mirage enables central image management of desktops while still allowing for local execution at the user endpoint.

 

What's New - Mirage App Layering
This Beta version of VMware Mirage offers a new solution for packaging and distributing applications to user endpoints.  Adding to the existing image management capabilities, App Layering enables IT administrators to define discrete layers that contain only applications and to deliver the app layers to Mirage-managed devices independently of the Mirage base image.

 

Application Layers Delivered via Mirage:

  • Appear as having been fully installed on the user endpoint
  • Do not rely on application virtualization technologies
  • Execute locally on the endpoint
  • Do not require network access for normal operation
