WELCOME to the VMware Mirage community!
High Level Feature Highlights
VMware Mirage offers a next-generation image management solution for physical devices. When Mirage is installed on a Windows device, such as a PC or POS (point of service or point of sale) device, 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 device getting uploaded to the data center, but also changes from IT getting downloaded and applied directly to the user's Windows device as well. Mirage enables central image management of desktops while still allowing for local execution at the user endpoint.
The core capabilities of Mirage include dynamic layering and automated backup and full system recovery. Dynamic layering and full system recovery enable IT to quickly and cost-effectively deliver, manage, and protect updates to operating systems and applications on endpoints at scale. Designed for distributed environments, Mirage requires little to minimal infrastructure at branch sties. Mirage complements and extends PCLM tools to help IT drive down support costs. OS and hardware migration, such as migrating from Windows XP to Windows 7, Windows 7 to Windows 8.1, Windows Embedded POS to POSReady 2009, or POSReady2009 to POSReady 7 can be accomplished with Mirage. IT can migrate quickly at scale, and end-user productivity remains high throughout the process, with minimal disruption.
