Release: VMware View 4.6

VMware has released version 4.6 of its Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solution; View. This version is the follow up of version 4.5 which was released in September last year.

View 4.6 is considered a minor update which adds bug fixes and USB updates. But it also provides support for external end-users to connect to their View destop outside of the firewall using the PC over IP (PCoIP) protocol. This is handeled by View Security Server a component of View which is typically deployed in a DMZ, which can provide an end-to-end PCoIP removing the need for SSL-VPN solutions.

VMware started supporting the PCoIP protocol in software when it released View 4.0 in November 2009.
