VMware Horizon 7 enables you to deliver applications and virtual desktops to your end-users, allowing them to access their workspace environments from anywhere and at any point in time, using any device. This course will take you from being a beginner to being able to centrally manage your desktops, using the latest version of VMware Horizon 7. The video starts with an overview of the architecture and latest features of VMware Horizon 7, including building your own lab environment so you can get hands-on with the course.
You will also learn how to design and deploy your Horizon 7 environment. Finally, we will build two operating systems, optimize them for your VDI, and then walk you through the different methods of delivery for the instant clone, linked clone, and full clone options.
By the end of the course, you will be equipped to create desktop resources by using Horizon Desktop Pools and fine-tune the end user experience, to ensure the best optimization from your virtual desktops.
