We have all heard about the new rapid desktop program during Steve Keynotes sessions in VMWorld. as steve said, there are multiple solutions from different vendors like Pivot3, Cisco … etc.
I though i should point you all out to the link where you can see all of these appliances with the configurations and the software it holds. Looking around, I found this link here on VMware Compatibility list which shows them with all the configuration within the appliances in term of hardware/Software.
These appliances are really great when we want to just deploy and expand on the go. no changes nothing is required except from running some scripts to configure and provision the desktops after the connectivity completes in the data center.
