VMware Horizon

VDI platform for managing virtual desktops & applications

About VMware Horizon

Horizon is a desktop virtualization software designed to help businesses manage virtual desktops and published applications through digital workspaces. Using the session collaboration module, healthcare professionals and educational institutions can invite multiple users to modify the virtual desktop and collaborate on peer reviews, design iterations, and more.

Administrators can secure the virtual desktop infrastructure and minimize potential data breaches via role-based access control and single sign-on (SSO) capabilities. Using Horizon’s Dynamic Environment Manager, enterprises can configure security policies according to business requirements and enforce them across all desktop environments or end-user profiles. It also provides designers and engineering teams with shared workstations, enabling them to collaborate on graphical 3D projects.

Horizon can be deployed on-premise or hosted in the cloud. Built on a hyper-converged infrastructure solution, it enables IT teams to add individual nodes or appliances, monitor system performance, and identify potential issues through automated alerts and real-time analytics.

Pros

I genuinely like vmware tools for their design usability and functional combination. Horizon is one of them. It’s great tool for remote work, provides ability to connect to your virtual desktop at work or at university.

Cons

Sometimes connection drops without causes, at least in my home network.

I enjoy using it for my everyday job, but don't enjoy having to log in several times just over a minimal hiccup in connection. Unlike other RDP sessions that attempt to reconnect.

Pros

It's your own person computer inside your computer, nothing complicated about it in comparison to other VMware.

Cons

Any hiccup in connection and there's no "trying to reconnect" you drop the whole session and have to do a sign in process again
