VMware Horizon 7 provides the centralized management, agility, and simplicity that is required for your virtual desktop infrastructure. With Horizon 7, your workstations reside inside the data center premises, which makes the provisioning, maintenance, and recovery of virtual workstations easier. Horizon 7 with VMware Just-in-Time Management Platform (JMP) can provision and deliver virtual desktops and applications in a fast, flexible, and personalized manner. JMP uses Instant Clones for ultrafast provisioning of desktops, App Volumes for real-time application delivery, and Dynamic Environment Manager for contextual policy management to deliver an experience with the simplicity of non-persistent management.
When implementing VDI using Horizon 7, the IP of your organization is secure inside your data center premises. A lightweight Horizon 7 client is installed on the end-point devices that communicates with virtual workstations in the data center. The Horizon 7 client is compatible with most devices on the market. It provides flexibility for employees working from home, as well as contractors and partners working from any device anywhere, thus increasing collaboration and productivity.
For graphics accelerated VDI workloads, Dell EMC recommends using the Blast Extreme Display protocol, which provides an enhanced remote session experience for professional graphics applications, even in a low latency network. The Blast Extreme protocol supports the H.264 and H.265 codecs, which can encode the graphics content from a virtual workstation display. NVIDIA Tesla T4 GPUs come with an advanced NVENC encoder. This encoder can offload H.264 or H.265 encoding from server processors, providing lower latency and better performance for the professional graphics applications that are used in the automotive and manufacturing industry.
