After the recent expansion of VMware Horizon Air in Europe (Paris and Frankfurt), VMware is taking the next step to offer its DaaS platform on multiple places in the APAC region. The first location will be Melbourne, which makes excellent network times possible in Australia and New Zealand. Because Horizon Air is the basis of the Login Online Desktop, the business ready workplace is now available worldwide.

For a very long time, SCOM (sometimes extended with third-party plugins) is being used as datacenter management system in SBC and VDI environments. With mixed results, because when all individual items like CPU, memory and IO queues are giving a green light, it doesn't mean that the end-user will have a good user experience. And in particular user experience is the cause of many helpdesk calls.

Last week the first technical preview of Windows 10 has been uploaded to the service provider to be used in the cloud. Although we are talking about a technical preview (build 9860), this already gives a good impression of what we can expect. Windows 10 is expected to be released in 2015, but it's already useful to look ahead to see which business applications are still working and which ones need to be adjusted.
Together with our service provider we created an environment within the Login Online Desktop where servers in the cloud are equipped with an Nvidia K1-Grid graphics card. With these servers in our infrastructure we are able to supply users who need extra graphics facilities within the online workspace, with the right amount of GPU-power.
