Since we announced our vision for VMware Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure in May, we received tremendous interest from prospective customers. At VMworld 2017 U.S., attendees will have the opportunity to learn more and view a demonstration of the solution during several sessions.
What Customers Are Saying about Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure
Our vision for this solution is to enable organizations like yours to pair existing Microsoft Azure infrastructure with the intuitive Horizon Cloud control plane, to create a secure, comprehensive cloud-hosted solution for delivering virtualized Windows applications and session desktops.
Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure is designed to help organizations transform Windows applications into a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model. This helps IT teams eliminate the burden of managing physical infrastructure and move to SaaS as part of your journey to a unified digital workspace.
We certainly think that the time has come for a powerful solution like this—and so do many of our current beta customers:
After trying the beta version of the solution, a technical architect at a large U.S. pharmacy chain exploring desktop virtualization expressed that VMware Cloud and Microsoft Azure working together is a match made in the cloud.
A solutions architect for a healthcare company looking to migrate from on-premises desktops to cloud desktops excitedly expressed that Horizon Cloud is the way to go.
Paul Chafin, Chief Technology Officer at the Florida Department of Health, said:
“Being able to quickly provision, purchase and deploy full Windows desktops from the cloud without the tedious management of physical infrastructure is very appealing and our organization can benefit from this service as we move our data and apps to the cloud. Microsoft and VMware are two proven companies in the industry and we have had a very positive experience so far as beta participants.”
