VMware Horizon Primary Use Case

Hans Kraaijeveld - PeerSpot reviewer
End User Computing Architect at Fondo

I use it for everything. I even contribute to the development of VMware exams.

In addition, I am a VMware, certified instructor. I am qualified to teach classes.

I work as an architect, consultant, and problem solver. I can do anything Horizon or related to Horizon, such as ControlUP.

We use VMware Horizon for virtualized desktop applications. 

It is a method of providing a user with access to centralized resources in the form of either a full desktop session or a hosted application, whether it is Windows or Linux.

We are using it to provide our users with a personalized desktop experience when they're working remotely, especially during the pandemic.

We are using its latest version. We usually deploy it on-prem, but I know that there is a possibility to put it on the cloud.

Senior Chief Engineer at ministry of electricity

We used this solution for a complaint management and support system. The project was a combination of Horizon 7, VMware, Oracle Database, Apex, and GlassFish. Most of them were deployed on Linux or Windows, and we implemented a center to manage the VMware cluster.

The main software, based on Oracle Database, gave the operator a terminal and different kinds of forms for entering the data that they got from the customers. The virtual machines were based on Horizon 7. We completed this project in 2018, and it is still working.

Cristiano Cumer - PeerSpot reviewer
Systems Engineer at a university with 201-500 employees

We use this solution for delivering virtual desktops and applications.

Currently, we are using version 2006 which has an older model of provisioning and there are some compatibility issues that we are going to solve in the coming months. The latest version is 2103. However, there is not much difference between 2006 and 2103 it is almost the same.

The small differences are in adjunct functionality and regarding the transference relationship between domains.

IT Project Lead at a tech services company with 51-200 employees

Most of the colleges are using Chromebooks but what I'm trying to develop is some virtual machines that have a common operating system to deliver to the student. They would be a virtual machine, similar to a Chromebook. This is what I am trying to develop.
