This VMware Horizon reference implementation case study focuses on a View virtual desktop implementation at Carroll Hospital Center (CHC), a Maryland, U.S., health provider. Desktop virtualization was a critical step in light of adopting the new electronic medical record (EMR) system.CHC had a Citrix XenApp solution for remote connectivity for several applications hosted offsite. The initial plan was to expand this Citrix environment, because CHC thought that switching to View would be too ambitious of a project. However, CHC found the Citrix environment not stable or mature enough and considered improving it. After carefully evaluating both technologies, CHC preferred the View solution because it was using more advanced virtualization technology and moving progressively faster than the Citrix products. In addition, VMware has a smaller footprint.
