Unlock the advanced features and full power of VMware Horizon 6 to deliver the industry's most comprehensive end-to-end user experience
Horizon 6 is VMware's latest end-user computing solution, designed not only to centralize and virtualize desktop environments but also to deliver individual applications securely to any device by means of a virtual workspace.
Your journey starts by investigating an end-user computing project including assessment, pilot, and production. Next, we move into the design phase where we will first take a deeper look at the Horizon 6 solution and its components and how to plan their use in a successful project. Once we have our design and have identified our use cases, we will start to install and configure the core solution. With that in place, we will fine-tune the best end-user experience. Finally, we examine the advanced and enterprise features of Horizon 6, such as VSAN, vCOPS for View, and Horizon Mirage.
