My wishlist for a VMware EUC suite to be created

Posted by on February 11, 2013 in Horizon Suite, Mirage, VDI, View, VMware | 1 comment

After talking to a number of customers about the vCloud suite lately and my normal EUC projects I have come to the conclusion that I would like to see VMware offer a Suite of products around their desktop related offerings. I think that this would be desirable for many reasons.

Would be great to see VMware offer the ability within a suite of offering per socket licensing for these EUC products. This would allow companies to design their View deployments to scale very dense helping reduce the licensing costs. I’m sure there will be resistance to this type of licensing since many of these products lend themselves to a per user type of cost.

I have compiled a list of products below that could be offered in two different EUC Suites. The Standard Suite offering customers the ability to implement solid VDI designs with the Enterprise Suite offering customers the ability to utilize the pending full suite of VMware desktop offerings.

VMware EUC Enterprise Suite

  • VMware View Premier
  • vCOps for View
  • Horizon Suite (Application Manager, Data and Mobile)
  • Mirage

VMware EUC Standard Suite

  • VMware View Premier
  • vCOps for View
  • Horizon Application Manager
