Designing and Deploying VMware Horizon View 7 [Video]

Video Description

Leverage the true power of VMware Horizon 7 to deploy your virtual desktop infrastructure

About This Video

  • Deploy great virtualized services for your users with VMware Horizon 7
  • Secure your Horizon View 7 Infrastructure
  • Deliver remote applications and session-based desktops with Horizon View 7

In Detail

This video course introduces you to the security aspects of Horizon View with SSL Certificates and True SSO and shows how these solutions can be implemented. You will then build a virtual desktop OS and several different desktops, ready for delivery to end users. You'll utilize the advantages afforded by the modern desktop and application delivery architecture of Horizon View and deliver only applications by publishing these to end users; you'll also deliver desktop sessions, rather than full desktops.

With the help of these features, you'll reduce the storage space required, and cut down on operational costs, by deploying truly stateless desktops. Towards the end of the video, you will investigate these features and configure Horizon View to deliver applications and desktop sessions to end users, thus ensuring painless application packaging and installation and making your life easy.
