Description

Optimize for VMware Horizon View

Select this option to indicate that each CVD assigned to this policy is a View desktop. Horizon Mirage limits the number of concurrent layer updates currently assigned in the System Configuration settings. When this option is selected, the Layer assignment only and the Optimize for LAN environments options are automatically enabled.

Layer assignment only

Select this option to prevent data from the client to be uploaded to the Mirage server. The client is used as an image management tool without the full backup of the client. This option is automatically enabled when the Optimize for VMware Horizon View option is selected.

Optimize for LAN environments

Select this option to deactivate compression and block-level deduplication on each CVD to which the policy is assigned. This provides a faster centralization process Horizon Mirage in LAN environments and lowers the resources consumed on the endpoint and Mirage server. When this option is enabled, the restore streaming functionality is disabled. This option is automatically enabled when the Optimize for VMware Horizon View option is selected.

Disable client throttling

Select this option to disable the client and network throttling between the Horizon Mirage client and the Horizon Mirage server, giving priority to Mirage operations.

Protect EFS files

Select this option to restore the Encrypted File System (EFS) files to their original encrypted state when files are downloaded in a CVD restore or file level restore. This option is not available when the Optimize for VMware Horizon View option is enabled.
