Day two of the VMware View Bootcamp focused on storage considerations for the View environment. Jim Yanick talked about a number of different things about how your decisions impact the storage requirements for the Viewinfrastructure. My key takeaways from the video are as follows: View Composer is a key feature of View 4.5/4.6; it allows for linked clones. Linked clones are all [...]
