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:

&#rsquo;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.&#rdquo;

If you want to see this in action, check out our sessions at VMworld 2017 U.S., where we will give a demonstration of Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure.

Delivering Graphics Power with NVIDIA GRID & VMware Horizon Cloud Hosted

Today countless enterprise customers, including Seventy Seven Energy, leverage VMware Horizon Cloud with hosted infrastructure to deliver cloud-hosted desktops and applications to any device, without the hassle and cost of managing their own infrastructure. These organizations rely on Horizon Cloud to deliver virtual apps and desktops to knowledge workers, seasonal employees and contract workers, as well as those involved in mergers and acquisitions.

At VMworld 2017, we will introduce high-performance, GPU-backed desktops to extend the reach of Horizon Cloud hosted to engineers and designers who have traditionally relied on dedicated graphics workstations to utilize 3D applications and graphics intensive applications and to visually analyze large data sets.

In partnership with NVIDIA, this joint solution taps into the power of NVIDIA GRID. Come fall, organizations utilizing Horizon Cloud hosted will be able to take advantage of this new capability, and these power users will be able to access virtual workstations on any device.

Key Benefits of Virtual Workstations

  • Deliver secure, immersive 3D graphics from the cloud. Power users and designers get the same graphics experience they would expect from dedicated hardware, delivered securely and cost effectively.
  • Improve collaboration workflow and reduce costs. Dispersed teams can collaborate on large graphics and data sets in real time in the cloud.
  • Provide greater security for mission-critical data. Protect intellectual property and improve security by centralizing data files.
  • Centralize management. Use a single pane of glass to assign graphics resources to end users in a balanced way. IT can now control user profiles to flexibly deliver the graphics performance needed by each user. This includes hardware resources, operating systems and applications.
  • Virtualize any desktop application. Bring the power of virtualization to the user who needs it most to be productive.
  • Provide flexibility and remote access to power users. Virtual workstations work independently of location, endpoint and network. Users can access their desktops and 3D applications while at work, home or traveling.

Is it Wise to Pursue a Cloud-Only or Cloud-First Strategy? Why Hybrid is Sometimes Best

Enterprise workloads in the cloud are expected to rise to 60% by 2018, according to a recent 451 Research survey. The same survey shows that 38% of enterprises have a cloud-first policy.

Over the past few years, we certainly saw organizations fully embrace the cloud. The cloud offered organizations the ability to more flexibly and cost-effectively conduct business, namely:

  • Mergers and acquisitions;
  • Divestitures;
  • Hardware and software refreshes; and
  • Streamlined IT

Public cloud outages can have some wondering if organizations evaluate the cost and business impact of only utilizing public cloud services in a cloud-only or cloud-first strategy.

Truth be told, not every workload can move to the cloud or should move to the cloud. There are benefits to having a hybrid strategy. According to Forbes contributor Patrick Moorhead:

&#rsquo;Hybrid IT, gives businesses a combination of their data centers, co-location and external cloud for hosting applications that could be traditional, virtualized, public cloud or private cloud.&#rdquo;

Hybrid IT strategies help organizations carefully determine which workloads are best moved to public clouds and which workloads need to stay on-premises in private clouds or data centers due to security reasons or app performance. A hybrid approach enables careful workload management to achieve flexibility and rapid scalability, while also mitigating the risk of relying on one option.

For organizations looking to virtualize desktops and apps, VMware Horizon Cloud enables organizations to deploy feature-rich virtual desktops and applications in the cloud, on-premises or both. This service uniquely allows customers to bring their own infrastructure or buy infrastructure from VMware. With a cloud control plane to simplify management for the entire deployment, Horizon Cloud reduces the cost and complexity of deploying virtual desktops and apps.

Here Comes … Horizon Cloud

Today, I&#rsquo;m excited to announce VMware&#rsquo;s Horizon Cloud service. This new cloud-scale offering enables organizations to deploy feature-rich virtual desktops and applications in the cloud, on-premises or in a combination of the two. Horizon Cloud uniquely allows customers to bring-your-own (BYO) infrastructure from certified hyper-converged infrastructure partners or get fully managed infrastructure from VMware/IBM SoftLayer.

The Horizon Cloud service includes a number of key new features that enable organizations&#rsquo; ability to flexibly deliver feature-rich and robust virtual desktops and apps in real time to end users.

Just-in-Time Management Platform (JMP)

Horizon Cloud customers take advantage of just-in-time management technologies, such as VMware Instant Clones, VMware App Volumes and VMware User Environment Manager as part of this service. The JMP platform allows customers to easily scale and deliver feature-rich, secure desktops to their end users on demand.

To get a sense of what JMP can do for your organization—whether you are start on-premises with Horizon 7 or move to the cloud with Horizon Cloud—here is a quick demo for you.

Digital Workspace Experience with BEAT (Blast Extreme Adaptive Transport)

Horizon Cloud customers can leverage BEAT, our new UDP-based transport. As part of our VMware Blast Extreme protocol, we designed BEAT to ensure a great user experience across various network conditions—especially those with low-bandwidth, high-latency and high-packet loss.

Whether your workers use WiFi and mobile networks or download video from halfway across the world, they enjoy great user experience with BEAT.

In addition to supporting Windows, Mac, iOS, Android and Chrome, Blast now supports over 125 Windows and Linux thin clients.

Here&#rsquo;s a look at Blast and BEAT in action:

High-Performance Desktops with NVIDIA GRID vGPU

Horizon Cloud supports developers and end users looking for 3D desktops with NVIDIA GRID vGPU.

Simplified Packaging

Horizon Cloud makes it easier than ever to get started with both named and concurrent connection use cases. With Horizon Cloud, customers purchase a single &#rsquo;connection&#rdquo; license (NU or CCU) that is deployed in conjunction with on-premises or cloud-hosted infrastructure. This allows customers to get started for as low as $16/NU for the service, making it more affordable than ever to move to the cloud.

Horizon Cloud also integrates with VMware Workspace ONE for customers looking to deliver a unified digital workspace for all of their mobile, Web, SaaS and Windows desktops and apps.
