Businesses today are increasingly mobile, globally distributed and fast paced. While this increasingly diverse workforce expects a consumer-simple interface for accessing work data and applications, IT faces the same challenge as before: securing the enterprise. The number one question facing organizations is:

How can I ensure my users are productive, while securing data and driving down costs?

VMware works with Microsoft to deliver enterprise collaboration solutions that enhance user experience and productivity, while delivering on the promise of a more secure enterprise. Last fall, we teamed up with Microsoft to deliver an optimized experience for Skype for Business on VMware Horizon.

Concurrently, VMware supports our customers’ migration to Windows 10 with desktop virtualization and endpoint management with VMware AirWatch. Solutions such as VMware Workspace ONE help organizations simplify Windows 10 device management. Horizon application and desktop virtualization solutions ease IT’s pain of migrating to Windows 10 by simplifying image management.

From desktop and application delivery to mobile and Windows device management, our work with Microsoft ensures that users can be productive and enterprise data remains secure.

Building on this promise, we are excited to share today that we will deliver Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure.

Azure is one of the fastest growing Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) providers. Horizon Cloud is the industry’s leading app and desktop cloud services offering. Together, our joint customers will be able to connect their own instance of Azure to our intuitive Horizon Cloud control plane. This combination creates a comprehensive cloud-hosted solution with federated access to Azure Active Directory (AD) for delivering virtualized Windows apps and desktops.

Integrating with leading clouds like Azure allows us to deliver cross-cloud architecture. Horizon Cloud uniquely pairs a single cloud control plane with our customers’ choice of deployment options to deliver and manage virtual desktops and apps. Customers choose from a number of flexible private and public cloud deployment options, including:

  • Cloud-hosted capacity managed by VMware.
  • Public cloud infrastructure from Microsoft Azure. Coming soon.
  • On-premises hyper-converged infrastructure from partners like Dell EMC, Hitachi and QTC.

We are certainly excited about the opportunity to work with Microsoft to bring Azure to Horizon Cloud and would love to share more details with you.  Visit our VMware and Microsoft web page, where you can get more details on this announcement and sign up to participate in our private beta.
