This IDC MarketScape includes vendors that create and sell software in the client virtualization space, with a focus on centralized virtual desktops, distributed virtual desktops, and virtual user session (VUS) software. Vendors that only offer user state virtualization and/or software products that support virtual client computing deployments but not one of the aforementioned products will not be included in the IDC MarketScape graphic or profiles. This is because these types of solutions address a specific or niche need in the market but do not, by themselves, provide a complete software solution that an end customer can purchase on a standalone basis or in addition to a Microsoft Server version.
VMware Horizon® 7 offers full-featured support for hosted applications and shared desktop sessions, expanding the capabilities of the leading virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) platform. Tightly integrated with Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS), Horizon can deliver hosted applications and desktop sessions, virtual desktops, and VMware ThinApp® virtualized applications, all supported on the devices end users want to use.
This white paper provides guidance for adding support for hosted applications and desktop sessions to your VMware Horizon infrastructure. Whether the goal is to integrate an existing RDS environment for combined management with VMware Horizon virtual desktops or deploy hosted applications and desktop sessions for the first time, VMware Horizon provides the technology required and a simple path forward.
