Why Choose VMware View over Microsoft RDS?
Which solution is best for your environment: Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) or  Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS)? RDS and session-based computing may work for certain niche use cases. However, for most of today’s demanding use cases, sessions are not adequate. VMware View offers ease of management along with a secure, robust architecture, and the ability to offer end users the freedom and choice they need to be productive. Specifically, VMware View offers the following advantages over RDS:

•    Isolates end users from the operating system (OS) and from each other
•    Provides better native application compatibility
•    Allows users to administer their own desktops
•    Offers superior data security
•    Maintains greater fault tolerance
•    Adds centralized management and ease of use Session-based computing has the following disadvantages compared with View:
• Runs desktop applications on a server operating system (may not be supported)
• Not all applications have licensing for a multi-user session environment
• Generates application compatibility issues
• Inconsistent performance for end users
