Cloud Volumes and what it brings to VMware

Written by Mo Elamin. Posted in VMWare

VMware acquisition of CloudVolumes, a product which enable real-time desktop application delivery. Delivering desktop applications to users, especially in Windows environments, can be very challenging. Adding or removing applications based on the user context, incompatibilities or conflicts with existing apps, all problems that interfere with successful application delivery.

Cloud Volumes is changing the way how virtual machines are managed and updated. With a click of a button, you can deliver any number of applications and any amount of data to any number of virtual machines within milliseconds or seconds.

This promises to change the game for desktop virtualisation and addresses the application delivery and performance challenge. With real-time application delivery, personalised desktops and application environments can be created at a reduced infrastructure cost by using a single gold image for multiple users or groups. As a result, customers will no longer have to choose between cost and a personalised experience.

CloudVolumes will also enable VMware to build real-time application delivery across all three of its technology focus areas that include end-user computing, software-defined data centre and hybrid cloud services.
