VMware working with RTO is nothing new. The two companies entered into a partnership last fall during VMworld 2009 to integrate the Virtual Profile technology into VMware View. With this purchase VMware can build this layering technology into the View product directly. This allows for the Operating sytems, user profile and applications to all be seperated out into individual layers.
While VMware is getting several of RTO’s products in this purchase the Virtual Profiles product that is a profile management solution is surely to be the gem in this deal.
