What Is VMware Horizon
Horizon is a family of products that securely deliver virtual desktops and apps on a modern architecture - whether on-premises or in the cloud, providing the best experience anywhere, anytime, and on any device. It enables organizations to optimize collaboration tools, get support for a range of client devices, and leverage an adaptive protocol that adjusts to changing network conditions. Horizon provides centralized desktops and apps which ensure strong security with no data residing on the device, streamlined patching, complete access control, and the delivery of trusted images every time.
The Horizon family enables several key use cases, including:
Remote and Hybrid Work - Place workloads strategically, on-premises or in the cloud, to deliver the best user experience quickly and securely to users in the office, at home, or anywhere in between.
Desktop as a Service - Horizon Cloud Service – next gen on Microsoft Azure is a DaaS platform that manages the Horizon infrastructure for you, saving you time and decreasing cloud consumptions costs with advanced automation, multi-session Windows 10 and 11, and power management.
Hybrid Cloud - Manage all Horizon environments from a single pane of glass, with a common set of tools to manage apps and images, monitor environments, and assign desktops or applications.
The Horizon family has two major platforms, Horizon 8 and Horizon Cloud Service – next gen. You can enhance Horizon by using other products in our portfolio like App Volumes, Dynamic Environment Manager, and Workspace ONE.
