What is VMware Mirage?

When Mirage is installed on a PC or virtual desktop, it scans the entire device and categorizes all of its contents into a number of logical layers. Mirage doesn'’t move anything around on the PC or virtual desktop. It just categorizes the data, so that your IT staff can perform more granular management of the endpoint.

Mirage then sends a complete copy of that endpoint image to the Mirage Server, which resides in the data center and keeps it synchronized. If an end user goes offline, Mirage performs a synchronization the next time that user comes back online. That synchronization includes the updates IT has made to the IT-managed layers, as well as changes that the end user has made to the system.

Images managed by VMware Mirage can run directly on a desktop or laptop—or inside a virtual machine with VMware Fusion Professional or VMware Horizon. End users can leverage local compute power, such as CPU or graphics, whether they are online or offline.

The Mirage architecture includes the Mirage Server in the data center to centralize endpoints for management and protection, the Mirage Client to create a local cache for an optimal user experience at the endpoint, and advanced WAN designed technology to speed bidirectional synchronization over the WAN.
