VMware Mirage how to series

Posted by on January 30, 2013 in Mirage, VMware | 0 comments

I am lucky enough to work with a good amount of customers around the VDI and End User Computing (EUC) space. And one of the products that is part of the VMware offering that has me excited these days is VMware Mirage. So I will be doing a series of posts around Mirage that will cover its features and how to use many of them. I will continue to update this list as new posts are finished. I have started with a list of things that I will be working.

I will use this post as the index for reaching each of these individual posts. If you have questions around Mirage or would like to see a feature that’s not yet listed here drop me a note in the comments.
