SplitView enables Multi-Monitor support for VDI

Many organizations have started to host desktops inside virtual machines running on centralized servers in a data center using VMware Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI).

Users can access their virtual desktops remotely from a traditional PC, thin client or re-purposed computer using a remote display protocol such as Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP).

VDI enables you to:
• Manage desktops centrally, simplifying desktop installations, backups and maintenance.
• Control access to sensitive data and intellectual property by maintaining information in a secure data center.
• Provide individual isolated virtual desktops to end users that look and feel like their normal desktop.
• VDI gives you the benefits of server-based computing without the limitations of shared services technologies or the application integration hassles.

For a true desktop experience, multi monitor support is one of the most requested features. This is where SplitView comes in. SplitView enables multiple monitors to be used with remote desktop protocols such as Microsoft RDP and Citrix ICA as depicted in this slide from the VMWorld 2007 conference.

SplitView is a key component for a multi-monitor based VDI environment as many of our customers have discovered. Try it out in your VDI environment today!
