Use the workspace aggregator to get a unified Workspace that will help you do your job and deliver it to the device of your choice
The Horizon suite is VMWare's end user solution suite. VMware Horizon Workspace allows administrators to virtualize operations systems, applications, and user data, and also delivers modern desktops to end users. VMware Horizon Workspace is a new type of solution that is commonly referred to as a "Workspace Aggregator” or “Universal Services Broker”. It delivers a solution that provides end-users with a single point of access to their corporate data, applications, and other IT-resources as well as providing IT administrators with a single point of administration and management.
This guide will show you how to deliver a complete user environment based on their entitlement, their location, and the end point device they are connecting with. It will also show you how, from an IT administrator’s perspective, everything can be managed from a single console.
This book starts by introducing the concepts behind Horizon Workspace, how they work, and how they map onto the everyday tasks faced by an IT administrator. It also covers the challenges a user faces in accessing the technology. It will then look in detail at the different features and functionality offered by Horizon Workspace in delivering against application brokering, data collaboration, and mobility. The book will take you through each one in detail, using illustrations and screenshots with the option to follow in real time to build out your own lab/pilot environment. You will also be guided through the product capabilities using step-by-step instructions and screenshots of each feature and how to implement it.
