VMware promises Linux and Chromebook support in Horizon 6

VMware Horizon

VMware has detailed an update to its Horizon platform for virtual desktops that takes advantage of new developments in the firm’s broader cloud platform and offers early support for Linux virtual desktops and Chromebooks as endpoint devices.

The release of VMware Horizon 6, generally available this week, adds support for Nvidia’s Grid GPU virtualisation technology, enabling virtual desktops to take advantage of hardware-accelerated graphics.

It also delivers support for VMware’s Virtual SAN and NSX technologies for virtualising storage and networking, which respectively reduce the cost of storage for VDI deployments and make it easier to provision and secure network infrastructure to support them.

Customers can also sign up for an early access programme offering support for Red Hat or Ubuntu Linux desktops, plus preview support for Google Chromebooks as an endpoint device for virtual desktop sessions.

For more details, see the full story on CloudHub.
