If you know me you know this is one of my fav tools. I chirp on about it all the time.
The Devolutions team has been hard at work making some major improvements, enhancements and additions – many of which were suggested by our incredible community of IT pros (that would be YOU!).
We’ve already announced three new additions in RDM 12 that we think you’ll appreciate: Devolutions Proxy, the PowerShell module and Wayk Now integration. But wait, there’s more! Here are some of the new features you can look forward to:
- SQL Server DB Login
- Role-based security
- Root Settings
- Proxy Tunnel (Http, SOCKS4, SOCKS4a, SOCKS5)
- Pack Data Source to optimize the database
- Mobile View
- Zoho Vault integration
- WebDAV files browser

How Can I Get It?
- If you have an active Enterprise License, you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you log into Remote Desktop Manager or visit our website: https://remotedesktopmanager.com/Home/Download
- If your license has expired, now is the ideal time to renew. Remember, you get lots of extras, including software maintenance and support. You can purchase a license through our online store, or send an email to email@example.com and our team will take care of you.
- If you’re new to the Devolutions family (welcome!), you can try RDM Enterprise for 30 days at no cost. After that, you can purchase a license, or you can use RDM Free for as long as you wish.
Important note if you’re using Devolutions Server (DVLS)
While you probably want to upgrade to Remote Desktop Manager 12 now, be careful. To get the best user experience, please contact us before updating to the latest version as we’ll provide you guidelines on how to properly update to Devolutions Server 4. To reach our team of expert simply send us a message to firstname.lastname@example.org. Updating to RDM 12 without updating to DVLS 4 will cause failures.
Know if you know me you know I’m a big fan of the Remote Desktop Manager tool. Especially since there is s a free version… 🙂
Same crew have released a beta of a new tool WAYK that allows you to take control of a remote computer, or allow an authorized user to take control of your computer. Many have compared it to teamviewer but TeamViewer is limited to 1 use case. You should jump on the Beta program to check it out for sure. Details found >here<
So today I have been blogging about VMware, Virtualisation and Cloud for 10 year and I could not be more excited and prouder to be still part of this industry and its huge community. I have met a lot of people along my way and for those who work close with me they are usually awe struck by the number of people I know. Usually the line is “Ricky you know everyone” my response is a little more modest when I say “Not everyone, just 50% of the industry” 🙂 But the reality is that whilst the community is vast for those who have been around long enough you make many friends along the way and a few enemies too. 🙂
Back to the blogging and where it began:
2005 the company I worked for recently became a European distributor of VMware and the question came about who would lead the technical and educational services for Virtualisation. The list of people who already knew something about virtualisation, Wintel, Storage, Networking was whittled down until I was left. To be honest I was resistant to the job because I never wanted to become a trainer. On November 5th we had our first meeting with management in VMware and that was the day it sank in and I decided to build a blog.
The old blog: in 2005 I’d never created a blog before so I created a flat website using dreamweaver. I blogged about the products we were taking on-board mostly VMware eco-system products. I didn’t even have a dedicated domain name, I used a sub domain “virtualisation.djsho.co.uk”
2006 I was assessed for VCI (VMware Certified Instructor) and the assessor gave me some great advice. Use a content management system like Joomla or Mambo and buy a domain. So I switched from a flat website to Mambo and purchased the domain www.virtualizeplanet.com and things got serious from there. Instead of focussing on just product information I started posting helpful tech posts. If I worked on something useful I decide I would try to give back to the community.
2007 I’d got to know Mike Laverick earlier in 2006. By now I was developing small maybe useful tools that talked to the VMWare API. Mike kindly linked back to an early tool I built for reverting VM snapshots. That got me some traffic. Thanks Mike
2008 I joined Veeam Software and was advised to use twitter. From Twiiter I started to pick up that bloggers were using WordPress more than Mambo and WordPress had lot of community plugins so I switched to WordPress. Problem was I couldn’t take my old blog posts with me. So I recreated a few important ones like links to my tools.
2010 I developed two very useful tools vSphere Plugin Wizard and vDisk Informer. Those tools also generated me some traffic. I also became a vExpert and started being aggregated on Planet v12n. I already had a big following but that got me a stage with the who’s who (vRockstars) of the virtualisation bloggersphere. Because of the tools I got some link backs from Duncan Epping and Kendrick Coleman, Thanks Guys
To date I still do what I do. If it’s useful I blog about it to educate others and that is what it’s all about.
Why do it: It’s true I like the lime light (a little) but I like to believe I do it to help others. It’s a bit like religion, give and you shall receive. I believe by being helpful through blogging it has helped my career and being vExpert has sent some nice toys my way. So here’s to the next decade and if you like this blog please tweet this post.
Shout out: Actually I funded my blog and lab mostly myself over the years but just over a year ago I started taking in sponsors which now pay for my blog and lab. So a big thanks to my sponsors:
- Liquidware Labs
- Devolution Software
