Start your desktop (VDI) and application virtualization deployment with VMware Horizon 7. Already running Citrix? We can help you migrate to Horizon so you can standardize on a single platform and streamline the management of your desktops and applications.

Already Running Citrix?

Reliably deliver applications in real time to Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop environments while reducing your costs by up to 55% with VMware App Volumes.

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.

Manage your Horizon Environments

Once you’ve deployed, you can monitor the health and performance of your Horizon environments with vRealize Operations for Horizon. Optimize performance and improve resource utilization.
