This course presents a methodology for designing a VMware® View™ solution for the
VMware vSphere® infrastructure. The design methodology includes recommendations
for the type of information and data that must be gathered and analyzed to make sound  design decisions for client systems, desktop options, the vSphere infrastructure, and View components.

The VMware recommended best practices are presented during each phase of the
design process. You will work with other participants to design a View solutio
n for a real world project
