This document lists pre-defined, orderable, low cost converged View solutions which are assembled, tested and distributed by VMware's partners as part of the View Rapid Desktop (Horizon FastTrack) Program and that are designed to provide organizations with a way to quickly deploy desktops based on View 5 and above.

Turnkey Appliances (Rapid Desktop Appliances) with pre-integrated, pre-configured, pre-tested, and validated software, storage and compute components offer a one-stop shop for Horizon deployment. These help customers:

  • Save money and minimize risk with an all-in-one solution
  • Simplify deployment with converged infrastructure that works together out of the box
  • Scale by simply adding additional load-balanced appliances

It is a requirement that the relevant components of each certified solution are also certified and listed on the appropriate VMware Compatibility Guide.

For detailed information regarding the individual View Appliances and solutions, please go to http://www.vmware.com/products/horizon-view/rapid-desktop-appliance-partners.html.

For deployment and configuration issues with these solutions, please contact respective partners.
