VMware Horizon 7 is a centralized desktop virtualization solution that enables organizations to deliver virtualized desktop services and applications to end users from centralized VMware vSphere servers.
Horizon 7 operates with VMware vCenter Server to create desktops from virtual machines that are running on VMware ESXi™ compute nodes and deploy these desktops to end users. Horizon 7 can also be installed on RDS hosts to deploy desktops and applications to end users. Horizon 7 uses an existing Active Directory infrastructure for user authentication and management.
After the creation of a desktop or application, authorized end users can use Web-based or locally installed client software to securely connect to centralized virtual machines, back-end physical systems, or RDS hosts.
