Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure—It Keeps Getting Better!

Don&#rsquo;t you love it when a good thing just gets even better? Like when your smartphone can double as your SLR camera or your thermostat can also water the plants. We at VMware definitely do and recently worked our magic on our VMware Horizon® Cloud Service™.

Earlier this year, we announced the Horizon Cloud service. Horizon Cloud is a software service from VMware that allows customers to easily and cost-effectively deploy cloud-hosted or on-premises virtual desktops and apps to any device, anywhere. Now, as more and more organizations adopt a multi-cloud strategy to leverage &#rsquo;best-fit&#rdquo; cloud capabilities, avoid cloud vulnerability and optimize cost, they face new challenges of moving between clouds and inefficiencies of operating multiple solutions. Wouldn&#rsquo;t it be nice to have a desktop virtualization service that could also easily span clouds and enable a mix and match of public and private clouds based on business needs?

The Horizon Cloud team has been working hard on this, and we are delighted to offer a solution with Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure! Each is great separately, but together they are amazing. Horizon Cloud comes from the leader in desktop and app virtualization. Microsoft Azure is the fastest growing public cloud provider today, available in 38 regions across the globe, not to mention the natural choice for organizations relying on Windows-based applications and enterprise applications like Microsoft Office 365.

Upcoming Features for Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure

Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure allows you to bring your own, existing Microsoft Azure infrastructure capacity and pair it with the Horizon Cloud service. Here are some of the exciting features you can expect:

    • Ability to track and manage Microsoft Azure capacity consumption to keep costs low
  • Support
    • Enterprise-grade, 24-7 support from VMware for the Horizon Cloud service

  • Multi-Cloud Deployments
    • Flexibility to choose between cloud capacity managed by VMware or bring-your-own infrastructure with Microsoft Azure

&#rsquo;VMware and Microsoft Azure, a match made in the Cloud. The ability to deliver applications in the cloud will allow us to continue to stay flexible to deliver the services that our customers and partners expect.&#rdquo;

VMware Horizon Cloud llega a Microsoft Azure

En VMware siempre intentamos ofrecer a nuestros usuarios tantas opciones y flexibilidad como sea posible en su entorno de TI.

Nuestro último compromiso con la causa es VMware Horizon Cloud en Microsoft Azure, que ayuda a nuestros usuarios a crear aplicaciones y escritorios virtuales VMware que incrementan la presencia mundial de Microsoft Azure en la empresa, presente ya en 38 regiones.

Al sumarle a uno de los proveedores de Infraestructura como Servicio (IaaS) que crece más rápido la aplicación líder del sector y la oferta de servicios cloud de escritorio, a nuestros usuarios se les ofrece varias opciones de infraestructura con la flexibilidad necesaria para moverse por diferentes plataformas, lo que supone la base de nuestra estrategia cross-cloud.

Pero, ¿qué significa?

Ahora los usuarios pueden conectar Azure IaaS a Horizon Cloud con el objetivo de generar y gestionar las aplicaciones y los escritorios virtuales Horizon. Es perfecto para empresas suscritas a Azure, pero también para clientes que buscan la flexibilidad que permite poder cambiar las opciones de desarrollo de otros servicios en la nube pública en caso de que cambie su uso, haya cambios en el personal o el entorno económico sea diferente, gracias al plano de control de nube única que permite utilizar Horizon Cloud. La integración de VMware y Microsoft también ayuda a nuestros usuarios a que su adaptación a Windows 10 sea más rápida.

Como siempre, nuestras soluciones ofrecen un abanico de posibilidades a los usuarios. De hecho, sólo Horizon Cloud ofrece esta flexibilidad para aplicaciones y escritorios virtuales. Por ejemplo, puede proporcionar una infraestructura de nube pública gestionada a aquellas empresas que quieren externalizar la gestión de la infraestructura a la nube para una experiencia de desktop as a service, o puede permitir la gestión de su propia infraestructura interna con aplicaciones de infraestructura hiperconvergente a aquellas empresas que quieren un mayor control sobre su infraestructura de escritorio virtual, particularmente para las que requieren una gran seguridad o resultados.

VMware sigue innovando y dando respuesta a las necesidades de nuestros clientes.

Esperamos que VMware Horizon Cloud para Microsoft Azure está en el mercado a partir del segundo semestre de 2017.
