VMworld 2018 is right around the corner! The entire Horizon team is gearing up to share the latest and greatest product info, roadmap, and sneak peaks with you. Whether you’re interested in Horizon 7, Horizon Cloud, or Horizon 7 on VMware Cloud on AWS, we have the right VMware Horizon at VMworld session for you.

The Horizon portfolio has significantly evolved in the last year, and if you haven’t been keeping track you might be surprised to see the depth and breadth of the portfolio today. We made a number of additions and enhancements that add flexibility and choice to the Horizon portfolio.

We introduced Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure, which lets you pair your own Microsoft Azure infrastructure with the Horizon Cloud control plane. This flexible solution is delivered as a service with consumption-based pricing, and all the benefits of a cloud service. And yes, Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure supports Windows 10 desktops, RSDH desktops and apps, and even vGPU.

On the Horizon 7 front, we continued to simplify management and improve the user experience. We also introduced Horizon on VMware Cloud on AWS which allows you to extend your on-premises Horizon 7 deployment to the cloud – great for use cases such as disaster recovery or temporary capacity that needs bursting to the cloud. If you want unified management for a hybrid deployment of your virtual desktops and apps, this might just be the solution for you.

With that said, here are a few noteworthy sessions you should consider adding to your schedule. Hurry, space is limited and registrations are filling fast!
