E24 – On The Horizon:

Introducing new Horizon SaaS editions to reduce TCO with automation, optimization, and performance management

Summary

Since the launch of our Horizon Subscription Upgrade Program in 2019, many VMware Horizon customers have upgraded to our Horizon Universal Subscription offering, taking advantage of several benefits including:

  • Flexible multi-cloud deployment options – deploy and host Horizon anywhere and in multiple clouds at the same time, including on-premises, Microsoft Azure, AWS, Google Cloud, Oracle Cloud, and IBM Cloud. IT can continue to deploy virtual desktops and apps on-premises, leverage the speed and scalability of hyperscaler capacity, or use a combination of both to help their employees quickly get secure access to corporate resources.
  • Simplified cross-pod and cross-cloud management – use the cloud-hosted, VMware-managed Horizon Control Plane, which includes multi-cloud SaaS services that allow IT to monitor and manage images, desktops, and apps across Horizon deployments, including both on-premises and in the cloud. For example, IT can use the Universal Broker service to enable a global entitlement layer across a multi-pod or multi-cloud deployment, providing a great user experience to access any desktop from anywhere with a single URL, and reducing TCO by removing the need for a global server load balancer.
  • Hybrid and multi-cloud use cases – add new cloud capacity to existing on-premises deployments to enable High Availability, Disaster Recovery, and burst capacity for temporary and seasonal workers without the CapEx requirements for additional data center hardware. Additionally, customers can move desktop and app workloads strategically to the cloud to be closer to cloud-hosted applications to reduce latency and optimize performance and user experience.
