On behalf of the many folks who helped make this happen, I am proud to announce the release of the Horizon 6 with View Introduction Hands On Lab! This lab is a guided tour of Horizon 6 with View specifically focusing on the new features.
This Horizon 6 with View lab is designed to demonstrate and introduce you to the new Horizon 6 features, starting with the ease of installation and configuration of View, RDS-hosted application setup and configuration, RDS-hosted desktop setup and configuration, and Cloud Pod Architecture configurations, including some scenarios.
In Horizon Workspace 1.5 you configured the URL for View client access on your Connector. In Horizon Workspace version 1.8 that is all changed. To allow for greater flexibility you now specify the View URL on a per Network Range basis.
This allows you to more easily specify an internal URL for your internal clients and an external URL for your external users.

Recently my EUC Reference Architecture team had the opportunity to see the Nexenta VSA for View (NV4V) for Horizon View in action (see our Reference Architecture posting here). I have to admit to being impressed by both the product and the enabling potential of a well-executed virtual storage accelerator (VSA) strategy. There are a couple of notable incumbents and newcomers in the VSA space. Atlantis Computing ILIO has enjoyed some great wins (check out their VMware Reference Implementation Study here), and Fusion-io’s ioVDI product looks very promising, although we’ve not had the chance to evaluate it yet. But rather than address them all in a one-size fits all article, here I’m going to focus on Nexenta VSA for View (NV4V).
Although you can read plenty online about NV4V and other VSA technology, I’ll give you a short explanation of why a well-crafted VSA product provides great benefits to your business.

This blog is written to help you understand how location awareness can be done in VMware Horizon View. In the world of BYOD or “Bring Your Own Device,” it’s critical your IT organization knows your configuration 4W (who, what, where, when) and 1H (how). Namely, who is accessing? What device do you use to access? What workplace are you trying to join in? Where are you accessing from? When are you trying to access?…
This blog focuses on the client attributes provided by VMware Horizon View which you can leverage and design for location awareness.
