Throughout his career, he has been involved with numerous large-scale enterprise projects and deployments, presented at key IT events, and worked in senior presales roles for some of the giants of IT. Over the last 8 years, he has focused his skills and experience on the desktop virtualization market.

Peter got his first taste of writing when assisting with some of the chapters in  Building  End-User Computing Solutions with VMware View ,  Mike Laverick and Barry Coombs ,  Mike Laverick Ltd  . Later, he wrote VMware Horizon Mirage Essentials and co-authored VMware Horizon Workspace Essentials ; both of these books were published by Packt Publishing.   He is currently co-authoring  Mastering VMware Horizon ,  Packt Publishing  , which will be published in late 2014.     I would like to dedicate this book to the memory of my late grandmother, who passed away at the beginning of 2014, sadly. She was an inspiration to me and could always be relied upon for her support, advice, and words of wisdom. She will be truly missed. There are also a couple of people I want to thank for the continued and ongoing support they have given me during the writing of this book. Firstly, and most importantly, I would like to thank my wife and our two young daughters for their continued support while I spent evenings and weekends writing  —  I couldn't have done this without your support. Secondly, thanks to the Packt Publishing team for giving me the opportunity to write this book and for their support, which has been outstanding yet again.  VMware Horizon View Essentials It's a tricky balancing act to manage a physical desktop estate and the challenges that it  brings in delivering an improved and more flexible level of service to your end users while lowering management costs. It's a near-impossible task that IT administrators face today. This is where the latest VMware technology comes into play and helps you solve these challenges. VMware Horizon View is a platform that delivers centralized, virtual desktop machines hosted on a server running a hypervisor and located in a data center. The end user then remotely connects to their virtual desktop machine from their end point device, such as a Windows laptop, Apple Mac, or tablet device. This technology, first introduced by VMware in 2002, is what is now known as Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, or VDI. VDI provides users with the freedom to work in a way that suits them, freeing them from the restrictions of not having to be in the office but also allowing them the choice of the device they use. This makes them more productive, and ultimately, your business more agile. From an IT administrator's perspective, VDI allows you to centrally manage your desktop environment, from being able to manage desktop images to the ease of adding and removing user entitlements  —  all controlled from a single management console. Horizon View 6.0 is VMware's latest virtual desktop solution designed to centralize and virtualize your desktop environment using the market-leading virtualization features and technology within VMware's Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) portfolio. Horizon View 6.0 builds upon this technology platform to deliver a rich user experience, enabling BYOD, flexible working, and enhanced security, to name but a few. Delivering an end user experience requires a different approach from other infrastructure- based initiatives. Getting this right is the key for a project to have a successful outcome, and this book will show you how. What This Book Covers Chapter 1 ,  Introducing VDI and VMware Horizon 6.0 , introduces what VDI is and how it compares with other VDI-type technologies. We will then cover the VMware VDI story and history in brief, followed by an overview of the latest solution. Chapter 2 ,  Horizon View 6.0 Architectural and Feature Overview , introduces you to the different components that make up the Horizon View solution. Each section will start with an overview of a specific feature or component, describing its role in the overall solution, how it fits into the infrastructure, and in some cases, take a look under the hood at how it works.
