What's New in This Release of View


This release of View delivers a number of important new features and enhancements.
Hosted Apps and Desktops
Delivers Hosted Apps and desktops (remote applications and desktops) through
expanded integration with Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS) on Windows Server
operating systems.
Provides a robust way to access one or more remote applications seamlessly from any
Horizon Client 3.0 or later using PCoIP.
Provides the ability to remote shared session desktops from RDS hosts using PCoIP.
Cloud Pod Architecture
Lets you deploy View in multiple datacenters that you can manage as a single
deployment.
Provides global entitlements to desktops in multiple datacenters.
Provices the ability to scale up to 20K desktops across two sites and four View pods.
View integration with VMware Virtual SAN technology
Aggregates local server-attached storage to satisfy performance and capacity
requirements of virtual desktops.
View recognizes the Virtual SAN storage type and automates the creation of Virtual SAN
storage policies based on the type of desktops being deployed.
If you intend to use Virtual SAN, download vSphere 5.5 U1, which is required to support
the Virtual SAN feature.
Additional Features
View Connection Server, security server, and View Composer are supported on Windows
Server 2012 R2 operating systems.
Ability to send View logs to a Syslog server such as VMware vCenter Log Insight.
Support for RDS remote applications and desktops with the View Agent DirectConnection Plug-in.
Enhanced smart card authentication for View Administrator.
Integration of remote applications with Workspace. Users can launch View applications
from the Workspace user portal.
Real-Time Audio-Video installs a new kernel-mode webcam driver on View desktops that
provides better compatibility with browser-based video apps and other 3rd-party
conferencing software.
The Remote Experience Agent is now integrated with View Agent. Previously, you had to
install View Agent and the Remote Experience Agent to use features such as HTML
Access, Unity Touch, Real-Time Audio-Video, and Windows 7 Multimedia Redirection.
Now you obtain these features by installing View Agent only.
Virtual machine space reclamation is supported for Windows 8 and 8.1 linked clone
machines in a vSphere 5.5 or later environment.
View Persona Management is supported on Windows 8.1 desktops. It is also supported
on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 desktops that are based on physical or virtual
machines.
The Blast Secure Gateway (BSG) now supports up to 800 connections to remote
desktops from clients using HTML Access. This connection limit applies to a BSG on one
