VMware Workspace ONE and VMware Horizon Reference Architecture

The VMware Workspace ONE and VMware Horizon Reference Architecture is now available and is a must read for anyone considering, designing, or undertaking a digital workspace project using VMware Workspace ONE, VMware Horizon 7, or VMware Horizon Cloud Service on Microsoft Azure.

The VMware Workspace ONE and VMware Horizon Reference Architecture guide provides a framework and guidance for architecting using Workspace ONE and Horizon, whether using cloud-based deployments or installing on-premises. Design guidance is given for each product—with a corresponding component design chapter devoted to each product—followed by chapters that provide best practices for integrating the components into a complete platform.
