We just implemented significant updates to the Network Ports on Horizon Cloud Service asset. The first thing you’ll notice is that you now have two assets instead of one:
- One that focuses on Horizon Cloud Service with Microsoft Azure, and
- Another that focuses on Horizon Cloud Service on IBM Cloud
We did this for a number of reasons.
For one thing, the two platforms have different levels of service built in. While Horizon Cloud Service on Microsoft Azure allows you to bring and configure some components of your own Microsoft Azure capacity, Horizon Cloud Service on IBM Cloud is a full service offering where VMware configures and manages all aspects of the base infrastructure components. The level of documentation that you need to implement Horizon Cloud Service on Microsoft Azure is more detailed than what is required for Horizon Cloud Service on IBM Cloud.
We also anticipate an expected ramp-up of changes in the Horizon Cloud Service on Microsoft Azure platform to extend Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop (coming soon) and other Azure-specific features that will be arriving in the near term, as well.
Like the Horizon 7 Network Ports diagrams, these two new assets are designed to be complimentary visual aids to the Horizon Cloud Service on Microsoft Azure and Horizon Cloud Service on IBM Cloud product documentation.
You can keep an eye on updates and new developments to these and other assets on Tech Zone by using the new Email Subscription feature.
We hope you have a wonderful November and see you at VMworld Europe this week!
