Falling right in line with using iPads to do business, I came across this article where the VMware View app will allow remote administration from the iPad. For any system administrator that uses an iPad, this app will expand the access to virtual systems while out of the office. The app uses PCoIP (PC over IP) protocol, which “is optimized to deliver acceptable streaming quality.” The app is free at this point which makes it a must have.
I know every security professional is wondering about connection security; VMware claims that the connection is secure to virtual machines no matter if via Wi-Fi or 3G.
Check out the app and let us know your thoughts. We will post our thoughts as we test and use the app ourselves.
