This guide is intended for anyone installing or administering published applications or published desktops in Horizon 7 or Horizon Apps. Readers should already be familiar with basic installation and administration procedures, such as those described in Publishing Applications with VMware Horizon 7.
When deploying a Horizon 7 or Horizon Apps RDSH-based published application and desktop solution, administrators will want to consider a number of best practices. Areas of consideration include VMware ESXi host sizing, RDSH image configuration and optimization, Horizon 7 configuration and policies, antivirus solutions, provisioning, and recurring maintenance.
Administrators will also want to consider integrating VMware JMP technologies, which include VMware Instant Clone Technology, VMware App Volumes, and VMware User Environment Manager. With our latest release of VMware Horizon 7, just-in-time delivery of virtual desktops is extended to include published applications delivered from RDSH servers, bringing increased speed, scale, and simplicity.
Be sure to download and read Best Practices for Published Applications and Desktops in VMware Horizon Apps and VMware Horizon 7.
