I realize that this series might seem like it’s a little late. After all, Horizon 7.0 has been out for a few months now. But between a very large writing project and wanting to take a few weeks off from writing, it’s time to get started with the comprehensive Horizon 7.0 series.
There have been a lot of updates and new features added to Horizon 7.0, and I covered most of those updates in a post back in February after the initial Horizon 7 announcement. The major features are:
- Instant Clones – New Provisioning Method
- Blast Extreme – New Remoting Protocol
- UEM Smart Policies – New Context Aware Policy Management
Those are just what I consider the major features that will impact most deployments. There are a lot of other improvements as well, including improvements to scalability through CloudPod, security through True SSO, and new client redirection features to support additional use cases.
Unlike my previous series, I plan to go beyond installing the core Horizon 7.0 components. This year, I hope to cover Access Point, RDSH, UEM, vRealize Operations for Horizon, and the latest version of App Volumes. No, that won’t be App Volumes 3.0. But I could cover that too.
Stay tuned. There will be much more to come.
