Mirage takes an unusual approach todesktop virtualization that is likely more suited to organizations that are wedded to their current desktop fleet and yet want to have a centrally managed virtual desktop environment. Wanova Mirage 3.0, released Nov. 8, attempts to ease the process by centralizing desktop workloads in the data center while offloading processing to a user’s device. The Mirage components create the illusion that the desktop is running as an independent system by transferring data back and forth.
