Next-generation Image Management for Physical Desktops and POS Devices
VMware Mirage provides next-generation image management for physical desktops. Dynamic layering and full system recovery enable IT to quickly and cost-effectively deliver, manage, and protect updates to operating systems and applications on endpoints at scale. Designed for distributed environments, Mirage requires little to minimal infrastructure at branch sites, to drive down capital expenditures. Mirage complements and extends PC Lifecycle Management tools, to drive down IT helpdesk and support costs.
Dynamic Layering for Endpoint and Application Management
Manage PCs or POS (point of service) devices as a set of logical layers owned by either IT or the end-user. Update IT-managed layers while maintaining end-user files and personalization.
Automated Backup and Full System Recovery
Store full desktop snapshots in the data center with continual synchronization of IT or end-user initiated changes.
Simplified Windows 7, 8.1, and POS Migrations
Accelerate the most common approaches to Windows PC and POS migrations. Migrate an existing Windows XP desktop to Windows 7, or migrate an existing Windows 7 desktop to Windows 8.1. Migrate old versions of Windows Embedded POS to POSReady 2009 or POSReady 7.
Designed for Distributed Environments
Mirage Branch Reflectors allow IT to download any updates once from the Mirage server and allows peer-to-peer updates from the Branch Reflectors to other Mirage clients in the branch office.
Easy Extension of PC Lifecycle Management (PCLM) Tools
Complement existing PCLM tools with dynamic layering, backup and recovery, and rollback options to minimize helpdesk support.
