VMware Operating System Optimisation Tool - VMware Flings

This week I've been playing with the VMware Horizon product and also looking at the VMware Horizon 7: Install, Configure, and Manage [7.3] course.

In the course we look at desktop optimisation, and a tool we look at is the The VMware OS Optimization Tool

The VMware OS Optimization Tool helps optimize Windows 7/8/2008/2012/10 systems for use with VMware Horizon View. The optimization tool includes customisable templates to enable or disable Windows system services and features, per VMware recommendations and best practices, across multiple systems. Since most Windows system services are enabled by default, the optimization tool can be used to easily disable unnecessary services and features to improve performance.

You can perform the following actions using the VMware OS Optimization Tool:

  •     Local Analyze/Optimize
  •     Remote Analyze
  •     Optimization History and Rollback
  •     Managing Templates
The tool is available for download from the VMware Flings website 

VMware also have a useful PDF called the:
