Delivering a Seamless Digital Workspace Experience with Horizon Cloud

VMware Workspace ONE integrates with VMware Horizon Cloud to provide a simple and secure enterprise platform that allows end users to access their applications, data and services from any device, anywhere. Both platforms were built to integrate with each other, which provides a single user interface (UI) through the Workspace ONE enterprise catalog, to deliver applications to end users.

Explore Workspace ONE further in a Hands-on Lab.

About Workspace ONE

Workspace ONE combines identity, real-time application delivery and mobility management to provide a digital workspace to your end users. This digital workspace delivers Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications, public native mobile applications—and when integrated with Horizon Cloud, virtual applications and desktops—all from a single, unified application store.

About Horizon Cloud

Horizon Cloud enables the delivery of cloud-hosted or on-premises virtual desktops and applications. With Horizon Cloud, you can leverage a cloud-based management plane and even infrastructure, instead of deploying an entire infrastructure to support VDI desktops and RDS applications traditionally. Your IT organization can focus on delivering applications and desktops, instead of spending time maintaining the infrastructure.

Benefits of Integration

The integration of Workspace ONE and Horizon Cloud provides a number of benefits:

Single Sign-On

One of the primary advantages that Workspace ONE and Horizon Cloud provide is secure, single sign-on (SSO) to both desktops and applications. This provides simplicity and ease of access while maintaining security. Users can utilize either the Workspace ONE web-based portal from any HTML 5 web browser or the Workspace ONE mobile application. And when used with an iOS-based device, users can utilize touch ID for SSO.

Two-Factor Authentication

Workspace ONE provides multiple multi-factor authentication methods, such as RSA, Radius, Certificate, Kerberos, and VMware Verify to protect your environment beyond the basic user ID and password. Workspace ONE also provides two-factor authentication (2FA) for Horizon Cloud to secure your Digital Workspace.

In addition, you can utilize step-up authentication, which allows additional multi-factor authentication beyond the initial authentication into Workspace ONE when accessing a desktop or application. This increases the security by requiring two-factor authentication to access a specific desktop or application, even if you don&#rsquo;t require it to access Workspace ONE.

Three Integration Options

Both Horizon Cloud and Workspace ONE have a cloud hosted option and an on-premises option. You can integrate the Horizon Cloud options with the Workspace ONE options in the following configurations:

Figure 2: Possible Integration Configuration Options

Although the two types of deployment have unique architecture requirements, both require an on-premises component. The on-premises component can be a virtual appliance or a Windows server, based on the type of deployment. For more information on the different deployments and their architecture, see VMware Workspace ONE Documentation.

Integration 1: Horizon Cloud with Hosted Infrastructure and Workspace ONE Cloud

Horizon Cloud with Hosted Infrastructure supports only Workspace ONE Cloud.

Figure 3: Integration 1: Horizon Cloud with Hosted Infrastructure and Workspace ONE Cloud

The following Figure 4 illustrates the integration option for Horizon Cloud with Hosted Infrastructure and Workspace ONE Cloud. The VMware Identity Manager Connector (a) is deployed on-premises in your data center. This integrates with your Active Directory and synchronizes the resources between Horizon Cloud and Workspace ONE, along with desktop and application entitlements. This synchronization between the VMware Identity Manger Connector and Horizon Cloud occurs over the VPN or Direct Connect (b), which connects your data center to your Horizon Cloud tenant (c). The VMware Identity Manager Connector then synchronizes the resources and entitlements to the VMware Identity Manager (IDM) Cloud service (d).

Figure 4: Integration 1: Horizon Cloud with Hosted Infrastructure and Workspace ONE Cloud

Integration 2: Horizon Cloud On Premises and Workspace ONE On Premises

Horizon Cloud with On-Premises Infrastructure supports both the on-premises and cloud versions of Workspace ONE.

Figure 5: Integration 2: Horizon Cloud On-Premises and on-premises version of Workspace ONE

You can use Horizon Cloud with On-Premises Infrastructure to run desktops and applications in their data center using Hyper Converged Infrastructure (HCI) Appliances, but with abut with a cloud base control plane.

Figure 6 illustrates the integration option for Horizon Cloud On-Premises Infrastructure and on-premises version of Workspace ONE. VMware Identity Manager (a) is deployed as a virtual appliance in your data center. This provides integration with your Active Directory (b) and also performs the synchronization of the resources between Horizon Cloud and Workspace ONE (c), along with desktop entitlements.

Figure 6: Integration 2: Horizon Cloud On-Premises and on-premises version of Workspace ONE

Integration 3: Horizon Cloud On Premises and Workspace ONE Cloud

Horizon Cloud with On-Premises Infrastructure supports both the on-premises version of Workspace ONE and Workspace ONE Cloud.

Figure 7: Integration 3: Horizon Cloud On Premises and Workspace ONE Cloud

For Workspace ONE Cloud, the VMware Identity Manager Connector (a) is deployed on-premises in your data center (b). This provides integration with your Active Directory and also performs the synchronization (c) of the resources between Horizon Cloud and Workspace ONE, along with desktop entitlements. The VMware Identity Manager Connector then synchronizes the resources and entitlements to the IDM Cloud service (d).

Figure 8: Integration 3: Horizon Cloud On Premises and Workspace ONE Cloud

Tips on How to Integrate

To integrate Horizon Cloud with Workspace ONE, you deploy VMware Identity Manager or VMware Identity Manager Connector on-premises with one of the Horizon Cloud Service options described earlier. To start the integration, ensure that VMware Identity Manager or VMware Identity Manager Connector is configured and integrated with your Enterprise Directory.

For more information, see the VMware Horizon Cloud Service Documentation or VMware Workspace ONE Documentation.

  6. Navigate to Settings > General Settings > Edit.
  7. In the VMware Identity Manager section, enter the following required information:
  8. Click Save.

Enforce User Authentication through Workspace ONE Portal

You can set Horizon Cloud to enforce end user authentication through the Workspace ONE portal, requiring SAML-based authentication.

Figure 13: Enforcing User Authentication

  1. In the Administration Console, navigate to Settings > General Settings, and click Edit.
  2. In the User Account Configuration section, make selections according to your organization’s needs.
    • Force Remote Users to vIDM – When set to Yes, users that are trying to access their desktops from locations outside of your corporate network must log in to their Workspace ONE portal and access desktops and applications from that portal.
    • Force Internal Users to vIDM – When set to Yes, users that are trying to access their desktops from locations within your corporate network must log in to their Workspace ONE portal and access desktops and applications from that portal.
  3. Click Save to confirm the configuration to the system.

After you verify that user authentication is enforced, your users can launch desktops and applications securely from Workspace ONE.

Launch a Desktop or Application using Horizon Client or Supported Browser

Your end users can use either the Horizon Client or any supported HTML 5 browser to launch desktops and applications.

  1. In the Workspace ONE portal, click Bookmarks
  2. Double-click the desktop or application to launch.

To Wrap this up….

Step-by-step documentation on how to integrate Horizon Cloud with VMware Identity Manager can be found in the VMware Horizon Cloud Service Documentation and VMware Workspace ONE Documentation.

VMware Horizon Virtualization Pack for Skype for Business

Optimizing Skype for EUC Is the Only Way to Go

You can run Skype for Business inside Horizon 7 virtual desktops without negatively affecting the virtual infrastructure and overloading the network. During Skype audio and video calls, all media processing takes place on the Windows client machine, instead of in the virtual desktop,.

To learn more about the Horizon Virtualization Pack for Skype for Business, watch the following two videos (each 10 minutes long) that provide a technical overview of the technology and offer some insights to its performance-enhancing characteristics.

Technical Overview for the Horizon Virtualization Pack (Video Presentation)

The technical overview for the Horizon Virtualization pack video covers the following topics:

  • Challenges delivering Skype audio and video media
  • How it works
  • Key benefits and capabilities
  • Architecture
  • External accessibility
  • Installation steps
  • Supportability
  • Troubleshooting and configuration
  • Resources

Horizon with Skype for Business Testing (Video Results)

The Horizon with Skype for Business Testing video demonstrates VMware Horizon 7 with Skype for Business for audio and video call scenarios. The video provides a series of test cases that show the benefits of the Horizon Virtualization Pack for Skype for Business. The video offers both qualitative and quantitative test results that compare two Horizon 7 deployment scenarios that include and exclude the Virtualization Pack.

The difference does not seem significant at first, but the impact is more far-reaching when you consider performance when scaling beyond the resource consumption of two sessions. When sites try to scale EUC workloads based on Skype for Business, the importance of using the Virtualization Pack becomes paramount, as is evident from the details of this study.

The testing environment consisted of:

  • VMware Horizon 7.2
  • VMware Client 4.5
  • Skype for Business
    • Server: Office 365
    • Client: Office 2016 Pro Plus, 32-bit
  • Horizon 7 test lab
    • Located in Washington state
    • Two Windows 10 Enterprise 64-bit virtual desktops
  • Horizon 7 test clients
    • Located in North and South Florida
    • Two Windows 10 systems

The configuration scenarios for the point-to-point video-call testing included:

  • Test 1: The first test scenario was configured for a point-to-point video call using the VMware Real-Time Audio-Video (RTAV) feature included with Horizon 7. Although RTAV supports webcams and audio devices, it is not the most efficient means for delivering Skype due to the media hairpinning and transcoding method that this technology uses. However, RTAV does serve as sufficient fallback for times when the Virtualization Pack cannot be used.

Testing was staged with virtual desktops hosted in Washington, and the client endpoint devices across the U.S., 3,000 miles away in Florida. There was over 100 ms of network latency that separated the virtual desktops from the endpoints. This is a great example of why media hairpinning is very costly; the audio and video from the local endpoints was sent to the virtual desktops, exchanged among the Skype clients, transcoded as part of the remote delivery protocol, and then finally delivered to the endpoints coast-to-coast a second time.

  • Test 2: The second test scenario was configured for a point-to-point video call using the VMware Horizon Virtualization Pack for Skype for Business feature included with Horizon 7. The Virtualization Pack is the optimized, best approach for delivering Skype because the audio and video media is delivered directly to and from the client endpoint devices without transcoding, and is routed out-of-band to the remote delivery protocol.

Test 2 used the same hosting environment, client endpoint devices, and network conditions as the first test scenario. Because the Virtualization Pack was enabled for this configuration, the audio and video media exchanges were contained in the endpoints and never traversed across the country. A clearer, better user experience can be observed in the captured footage while substantially fewer EUC infrastructure resources were consumed when compared to the first test scenario.

Be sure to watch the video in its entirety for other data points and details, as well as another testing scenario using a single desktop session.

 

Summary

These two videos provide a technical overview of the Horizon Virtualization Pack for Skype for Business and demonstrate the performance-enhancing characteristics of the technology.

Il meglio di due mondi: come l’integrazione fra le soluzioni VMware e Dell EMC accelererà la trasformazione della forza lavoro

Mentre i nostri clienti sono alle prese con il percorso di trasformazione della forza lavoro, anche noi intraprendiamo un viaggio in parallelo, alla scoperta di nuovi modi per supportarli.

Le aziende cercano soluzioni che le aiutino ad accelerare la trasformazione digitale sia dal punto di vista dell&#rsquo;IT che della forza lavoro, trasformazione che oggi non può prescindere dall&#rsquo;adozione di tecnologie e processi capaci di garantire che il lavoro possa essere svolto con modalità nuove, in qualunque luogo e in qualsiasi momento. Abilitare tutto questo è fondamentale, ma desideriamo farlo senza dover aggiungere un ulteriore strato di complessità a costi eccessivi.

Ecco perché, nel nostro viaggio, stiamo collaborando con Dell EMC per migliorare le soluzioni di End-User Computing. Saremo in grado di aiutare i clienti a realizzare i vantaggi della trasformazione del posto di lavoro tramite tecnologie mobili, desktop e cloud. Insieme, supporteremo quelle aziende che si sentono ostacolate e stanche di gestire molteplici contratti di fornitori, SLA e console di gestione delle soluzioni, che contribuiscono tutti ad accrescere il TCO.

Cosa stiamo facendo esattamente?

In primo luogo, abbiamo integrato VMware AirWatch con Dell Client Command – gli strumenti di gestione dei sistemi client Dell - per estendere le funzionalità di gestione remota per le caratteristiche chiave del sistema hardware di Dell e migliorare AirWatch Unified Endpoint Management (UEM). Questa integrazione aiuta l&#rsquo;IT a valutare la sicurezza del BIOS e a intraprendere azioni per migliorare l’allineamento con i requisiti di conformità.

In secondo luogo, abbiamo voluto fornire un modo economico, chiaro e semplice per implementare soluzioni di virtualizzazione client con VDI Dell EMC powered by VMware Horizon, che offre una soluzione completa per la virtualizzazione desktop e delle applicazioni con un’infrastruttura ottimizzata di carico, software integrato e thin client Dell Wyse. I clienti possono sfruttare una sola soluzione pronta per essere implementata con tutti i componenti necessari per fornire desktop e applicazioni virtuali in metà dei passaggi e dei tempi rispetto alla distribuzione delle singole soluzioni.

In entrambi i casi, volevamo ridurre i costi; lo stiamo facendo agendo sul costo totale di gestione dei PC e riducendo per questi ultimi i costi di implementazione del software VDI. Ma non si tratta solo di costi, il nostro obiettivo è abbattere le barriere della gestione di software e hardware dei nostri clienti, supportando così le organizzazioni nel loro processo di trasformazione della forza lavoro.
