Already Running Citrix?
New to Desktop and Application Virtualization?
Learn how desktop and application virtualization can deliver a consistent user experience across devices and locations while keeping corporate data secure and compliant. Whether you’re already running vSphere or you’re brand new to virtualization, here are the steps to get started.
Gather the Facts about Your Current Environment
Our desktop assessment tool helps you prepare for the move to Horizon desktops and applications. Once the assessment is complete, you can design an operational prototype, identify technology and skills gaps, and uncover risks.
- Gather baseline performance data for your end-user environment. Identify the set of criteria that are important to your end users. Application launch times, log-in times and accessibility are important performance benchmarks to consider.
- Understand your current environment, including the various components of technology infrastructure and the internal IT skillset necessary for project readiness.
Decide Whether to Deploy On-Premises or in the Cloud
You can run our virtual desktop infrastructure on-premises or as a cloud-hosted desktop service with Horizon Air Cloud-Hosted and Cloud-Managed Services. If you’re going to deploy Horizon 7 on-premises, compare editions and see which one is right for you.
