VMware Horizon View Review

We've been able to remove 70% of the desktops from our classrooms and onto VDI, but the VM management console should be improved.

Valuable Features

The most valuable feature is virtual machine provisioning.

Improvements to My Organization

We used to have desktops in our class rooms, and now 30% of our classrooms are on VDI. It is very easy to manage centrally and complaints about PCs in classrooms are less than 5% now.

Room for Improvement

The pools and virtual machine management console should be improved, as there is no way to group PCs in different pools, etc.

Deployment Issues

It was a little complex when configuring Active Directory and other server roles.

It is very high, we are planning to introduce to all of our class rooms.

Pricing is high as VMware costs are always high.

It is a good solution, it is stable.
