Thin Clients, VDI and Linux integration from the front lines.... Raw and sometimes unedited notes based on my experiences with VMware, Thin Clients, Linux etc.

So from Allessandro's Virtualization.info he has some other interesting news...

But what is very interesting to note is his final comment

It's interesting to note that another Dunes product, the one addressing VDI scenarios called VD-O, seems disappeared immediately after acquisition announcement.

Because not only has VD-O disappeared from their website, if you use Dunes search tool you will only find reference to it in general apart from this entry:

VD-O 1.0 Demonstration (Products/Theater)
Right-click and choose save as to download the movie …

which by the way, no longer works, or at least you are then prompted to put in a user id and password, so I'd suspect that it won't get you very far?

So this does beg the following questions:

  • Has VMware now settled on the killer VDI Broker?
  • Will this be a better buy than Propero?
  • Is the MS Desktop Licensing the only thing now holding back VDI?

Release: Dunes VS-O Lifecycle 1.0

Despite the company has been acquired by VMware, Dunes had time to release a new product: VS-O Lifecycle 1.0.

The new solution is based on well-known automation framework Dunes offers as VS-O flagship product, and leverages part of its capabilities in following features:

  • Automated virtual machines provisioning and decommissioning
  • Provisioning moderation and delegation
  • Assisted provisioning
  • Virtual machines lifecycle tracking
  • Self-service web portal

Considering VMware acquisition probably this product will never be released to the general public. For this reason the virtualization.info Virtualization Industry Roadmap will not be updated as usual.

It's interesting to note that another Dunes product, the one addressing VDI scenarios called VD-O, seems disappeared immediately after acquisition announcement.
