VDI for the iPad

VMware View 4.6 now allows for native PCoIP (PC over IP) connections directly from a View client to their virtual desktop without the need for an SSL VPN. This was not previously possible in earlier View versions where only RDP via SSL was possible.

What does this mean?

From an iPad with the View Client, I can access an external facing link to connect via PCoIP to my virtual desktop.

This open's up a whole new market for VMware and tablet devices.

Here's a great article on the subject:
