VMware Horizon View Review

Once a user finishes with a training computer, we can rebuild it again without worrying about security or viruses.


What is most valuable?

It’s easy to maintain with the recompose feature. It makes my job easier, as I can update and break the computers, and then rebuild them immediately.

How has it helped my organization?

It's basically setting up our training computers much more easily than before – once a user finishes, we can rebuild them again, and we don’t have to worry about security or viruses.

What needs improvement?

For what we are using it for, it's been very good. I see a lot of needs, but because our environment is constricted for now it meets our needs. If we can go into a cloud environment, then I see a lot of things I would need.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

It's easy to deploy.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Very, very good. Reliable, so far I haven’t had any major issues or breakdowns.

How are customer service and technical support?

I haven’t dealt with it since the product is so simple to use, and the deployment was not too complex. VMware support in general is very good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We were using Citrix, and Horizon had better features and was easier to adapt. Our Citrix environment was getting old. Also, tech support was a key to change.

How was the initial setup?

Very simple.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We only looked at VMware.
