VMware licenses RTO's Virtual Profiles

User profiles are a pain in the *. All to often profiles get corrupted by multiple sessions and logons are often slow. RTO has a product for this: Virtual Profiles. This product solves a lot of problems with user profiles.

If you are going to use virtual desktops you will eventually end up with the same problem Terminal Server and Citrix users have had for a long time. But don’t worry, there is hope on the horizon:
