VMware Horizon changed its name many times in the past which is really confusing. Originally sold under the name VMware VDM but with the release of version 3.0.0 in 2008 it was changed to VMware View version and changed again to VMware Horizon View with the launch of the June 2014. When version 7 was released, it was renamed VMware Horizon (short for Horizon). Hopefully VMware will not change its name again.
Horizon is a solution produced by VMware to deploy a virtual Desktop infrastructure. VMware Horizon is also known as VMware Horizon View and integrates seamlessly with the rest of VMware’s product line.
Horizon works differently from terminal servers like VNC or Windows Terminal Services. Using the terminal service, users can access the server and use applications in their own sessions according to permissions specified by the administrator.
What is VMware Horizon?
VMware Horizon is virtualization software of VMWare. This software helps deploy virtual desktops to end users. It is a very powerful virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) tool. VMware Horizon is the leading platform for virtual apps and Dekstop. It allows end users to access all of their virtual desktops, applications and services online via a digital workspace (which has been optimized for software defined Data Centers). This can help speed up desktop and application operations dozens of times, reduce the cost of traditional solutions by more than half, and help IT control, manage, and secure all resources in Windows.
Since all these desktops, applications, and services (including RDS hosted apps, VMware ThinApp packaged applications, SaaS applications, even virtualized applications from Citrix) can be accessed. From a unified workspace, VMware Horizon transcends the boundaries between devices, locations, vehicles, and connectivity, giving users unmatched simplicity, security, speed and scalability. at a lower cost. This is sure to give IT departments a consistently superior end-user experience.
