VMware View 4.0 released

Yesterday VMware released View 4.0 with the new PC-over-IP protocol who will replace the RDP protocol for View.

View will run on vSphere the latest version of the ESX range. Two versions will be availible, View Enterprise Edition who is going to cost 150 dollar per user, and View 4 Premier Edition who is will cost 25o dollar per user.
The Enterprise version contains vSphere, vCenter and the View Manager. The Premier edition has the View Composer (for Linked Clones) en ThinApp4 (for application virtualization) extra.

For better performance VMware introduced the PC-over-IP protocol from Teradici. VMware ported this hardware protocol to a software protocol. Thanks to this protocol multimedia support is much better.

VMware say’s View 4 is interesting for companies who want to use Windows 7 in there environment. In my option running View on vSphere is also a a pro.
VMware annouced that they will be working together with Cisco, Dell, EMC en HP for hardware for View.
