Horizon Cloud Service with Hosted Infrastructure – July 2017 Technical Updates

There are several technical updates to the VMware Horizon Cloud Service with Hosted Infrastructure this quarter. The updates for this release focus on expanding capabilities from the initial release in February. VMware will contact all customers individually to schedule the upgrade of their tenant(s) to the new release (17.1). For more details on this release, see the Horizon Cloud with Hosted Infrastructure 17.1 Release Notes.

New Data Center Availability Added!

VMware is continuing its partnership with IBM to bring VMware Horizon Cloud Service to more regions. Since Februrary, we have added capabilities to host Horizon Cloud in the United Kingdom (May), Germany (June) and in California (July). We now have three data centers in the U.S., one in Japan, and two in Europe. The Horizon Cloud team will continueto add more data centers in the next few months. Stay tuned!

Native Applications with App Volumes Technology Is Generally Available

In February, we enabled a few select customers to use VMware App Volumes technology to create and leverage AppStacks in Horizon Cloud. This feature is now generally available to any customer who requests it. Note that add-on storage is required to use this feature. If you are a HorizonCloud customer and would like to use Native Applications powered by App Volumes technology, consult with your VMware sales team.

Smart Policies Support

You can now leverage Smart Policies in Horizon Cloud. Smart Policies allow you to have fine-grain control over a user&#rsquo;s desktop experience. You can dynamically enable, disable, or control access to user features in Horizon Cloud based on who the user is, and how they are accessing Horizon Cloud. Smart Policies were released as an integration between VMwareHorizon 7 and VMware User Environment Manager in 2016.

For example, with Smart Policies, an administrator can decide to disable access to USB devices or to cut-and-paste from within the Horizon Client if a user is attempting to access the HorizonCloud environment from an untrusted or external network. You can also dynamically control display-protocol configurations based on the type of device that is being used.

Smart Policies in Horizon Cloud work the same as they do in Horizon 7. VMware Senior Product Line Manager Aaron Black wrote an excellent blog post pointing out some great use cases for Smart Policies. If you want to try out Smart Policies in your Horizon Cloud deployment, download the Reviewers Guide for View in VMware Horizon 7: Smart Policies.

Windows Server 2016 Support

Horizon Cloud continues to provide support for customers wanting to use the latest editions of Windows operating systems. With this release, Horizon Cloud with Hosted Infrastructure now supports Windows Server 2016 for RDSH hosts and for skinned Windows Server based virtual desktops. For full details on OS support in Horizon Cloud with Hosted Infrastructure, see the Horizon Cloud with Hosted Infrastructure Service Description document, which can be found in the Horizon Cloud Service with Hosted Infrastructure Terms of Service page.

Horizon Virtualization Pack for Skype for Business Support

Full support for the Horizon® Virtualization Pack for Skype for Business isreleased for Windows clientswith Horizon Cloud. This solution enables customers to use Skype for Business within Horizon desktops to make optimized audio-video calls and telephony features using the native Skype client. Please note that this functionality is only available on VDI desktops today, but will be made available on RDSH desktops / apps in the future. Details on what features are supported with this release can be found in the release notes for Horizon 7.2.

Enhanced Troubleshooting Capabilities through Console Access (BETA)

We have added more troubleshooting features to the Horizon Air Console Access - HACA tool. HACA, which is currently in Beta,gives administrators direct access to individual desktop consoles for troubleshooting purposes. The tool has been enhanced to allow administratorsthe abilitytotroubleshootvirtual machines that get stuck during the Windows OS startup process, before the Horizon Agent starts.

9 New VMware AirWatch Code Samples for Windows 10 Management

This blog was updated on May 22,2017, with the latest information about the Device Enrollment Program from Apple. Join the conversation on Twitter using #iOSinBusiness.

What is the Device Enrollment Program from Apple?

The Device Enrollment Program provides a fast, streamlined way to deploy your corporate-owned Mac, iOS or tvOS devices. With a mobile device management (MDM) and unified endpoint management solution like VMware AirWatch, IT can:

  • Customize device settings;
  • Activate and supervise devices over the air; and
  • Enable users to setup their own devices out of the box.

[Related: 27 Questions Answered about AirWatch & the Device Enrollment Program from Apple]

What IT challenges does the Device Enrollment Program help address?

The Device Enrollment Program solves several critical requirements for corporate-owned devices. First, organizations save time and money by eliminating high-touch processes for IT. DEP takes configuration time to zero. Deployment of corporate-owned devices with DEP means zero-touch configuration for IT, eliminates staging and automates device configuration.

Second, onboarding iOS or macOS devices is streamlined for users. Based on the settings IT configured, users are prompted through Setup Assistant (skipping through any unnecessary screens). Users only need to authenticate and don&#rsquo;t need to be tech savvy to get the content, apps and email they need on their smartphones.

Finally, supervising iOS devices over the air is possible with the DEP. With supervision, administrators have more control over the device and can disable features like AirDrop, the App Store and account modification. They can also enable features like password protection. Also, the MDM profile cannot be removed, which eliminates the possibility of un-enrollment to protect data and investments in devices and provides the best user experience possible.

What role does AirWatch play in Apple&#rsquo;s Device Enrollment Program?

To utilize the Device Enrollment Program, MDM capabilities like those part of VMware AirWatch are required. AirWatch integrates with the Device Enrollment Program, enabling organizations to automatically import devices in the console based on order history. Then, administrators can easily configure settings, apply profiles, assign applications and set restrictions that will apply automatically when users unbox devices.

How can I join the Device Enrollment Program from Apple?

First, enroll with Apple and register your organization&#rsquo;s information to create an account and designate your administrators. Next, configure your device settings and Setup Assistant steps in the AirWatch console. You then can ship devices directly to your users.

For more information, check out Apple&#rsquo;s Device Enrollment Program Guide.

What are the device requirements for the Apple Device Enrollment Program?

The devices must be corporate-owned and purchased directly from Apple or through participating Apple Authorized Resellers.*

*The Device Enrollment Program may not be supported by all Apple Authorized Resellers and carriers.

Where is the Device Enrollment Program available?

The Device Enrollment Program is available in 34 countries: Australia,Austria,Belgium,Brazil,Canada,Czech Republic,Denmark,Finland,France,Germany, Greece,Hong Kong,Hungary,India,Ireland,Italy,Japan,Luxembourg,Mexico,Netherlands, NewZealand,Norway,Poland,Portugal,Singapore,South Africa,Spain,Sweden,Switzerland, Taiwan,Turkey,United Arab Emirates,United Kingdom andUnitedStates.

What’s available for education with the Device Enrollment Program from Apple?

Both Apple and AirWatch give special consideration to unique education use cases. With Apple School Manager (ASM), Apple has delivered a central place for account creation, role definitions and content purchases. To support ASM, AirWatch designed a console section for education to setup mobile deployments and streamline management of teachers, students, classes, apps and more—whether you have a 1:1 or shared device deployment. After importing data from Apple School Manager, use AirWatch to:

  • Match devices with students or classes;
  • Assign applications (to users or devices); and
  • Configure the new Classroom application, allowing teachers to guide learning on iPads.

Students quickly choose the device with their photo displayed once their teacher has started the class.

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.
