VMware Mirage offers a unique solution for managing your laptops and desktops that combines centralized management for IT and local execution for end users. Mirage installs directly into Windows- no hyper-visors or formats required. And when Mirage is installed on a PC, it centralizes a complete virtual copy of that end point to the data center and keeps it synchronized. If an end user goes offline, Mirage will simply perform a synchronization when that user comes back online. That synchronization includes changes from the user’s Windows PC getting uploaded to the data center, but also includes changes from IT getting downloaded and applied directly to the user’s Windows PC as well! Since Mirage isn’t VDI, the end users PC isn’t tethered to any network- it is just a normal Windows PC, and the end user is able to enjoy full native PC performance, persistent personalization, and user-installed applications- all while online or offline.
