We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"VMware Horizon 7 has its proprietary Elastic streaming protocol, which is very good for delivering VDI."
"VMware is a hyper-converged infrastructure model. Therefore, for scaling it you just add more servers to it in the inputs. It's rather straightforward."
"It is stable and easily scalable."
"It is a stable solution. It is wonderful for multi-user environments, and it supports different virtual machines and operating systems. You can go for any kind of virtual machine. It has many features, especially for a call center. You don't have the issue of computers going down from time to time. You just need to copy the virtual machine to deploy it. You also don't need many people to maintain computers. With Horizon 7, you just need one or two people."
"The benefits of this solution are that it is modern and it works perfectly well with the rest of the VMware environments we have. Having this vertical integration is what matters to us as an organization and this solution excels in this area. You deploy it and it works without much hassle."
"We like that VMware is the top competitor in virtualization."
"Cloud-based VMware Workspace ONE is very good. It is easy to deploy and manage. Maintenance is also quite simple."
"A very easy to use solution."
"The most valuable feature is policy-driven control of the devices."
"The remote management and location capabilities are good."
"The most valuable feature is the interface with SCAP, which is the Security Content Automation Protocol."
"VMware Workspace ONE has been stable so far."
"The feature with the highest rating for me is its employee management. I can also praise how versatile it is in terms of operating systems. It has good support for multiple operating systems and can easily manage them all. Not just that, but it can also support any kind of tool that can be run on all these operating systems."
"We've found the solution to be easy to use."
"I would like to see seamless integration with the cloud because right now, the dependency is on the cloud providers."
"I would love to see so they can actually allow the use of Linux, from a hosting environment as well as from a VDI client environment."
"The remote connection, bandwidth usage, and error connection can be improved. Working with the load balancer sites should also be improved. For example, with Horizon, we can use two clients with a one megabit connection, but with Citrix, we can use four or five clients with the same bandwidth through ICA protocol. VMware must improve remote connection, connection stability, and load balancing."
"It is a little bit complex. You need a little bit of experience with ESXi installation and VMware before using this solution. You cannot directly jump to this solution. It also requires training. After you get trained, you can do anything with Horizon 7. In terms of features, it has been sufficient for my needs, but it can always have more features. They can maybe merge the servers. They can give the Horizon 7 server in one package with ESXi."
"The multimedia playback is not very good and they could improve it by increasing the quality."
"There are some issues with RAM in the system."
"Pricing is the only challenge right now. The licensing fee should be simplified a little bit. They have kept too many products as add ons. These need to be bundled with the low-cost, standard version. This will help customers in adopting this technology at a faster pace."
"Cost of licensing is quite high."
"When it comes to deployment and maintaining security, there should be an integrated console where you have a singular view of all of the products from the same OEM."
"The app installer is something that they should really change. It creates a lot of confusion for the user."
"The reverse proxy is not intuitive and it takes time to get it right, so this is something that can be improved."
"It's not accurate enough when it comes to sending items to end-users."
"From an identity perspective, there is a lot of room for improvement when it comes to integration with other solutions. I would say it needs more capabilities in terms of direct integrations, including cloud identity solution integrations."
"Technical support needs to be more responsive to our requests."
"Its cost is fair. You can go for a free trial, but for initializing a project, you need to purchase a license. There are different types of licenses."
"There are different editions available at different cost points."
"There is a separate cost for technical support and extra premium features. The pricing should be simplified."
"The cost is a little bit high."
"VMware Workspace ONE is not cheap; it's quite expensive. However, in the end, they gave us a reasonable price."
"If you have a host of custom requirements (including licensing), make sure to set aside enough time for the initial setup because it can take up to a few weeks depending on how complex your environment is."
"I think that the price is reasonable."
"Pricing is an area that could be improved."
"Its pricing was okay for our company."
"It's an expensive tool."
Horizon 7 allows IT to deliver virtual or RDSH published desktops and applications through a single platform to end users. These desktop and application services— including RDS hosted apps, packaged apps with VMware ThinApp, SaaS apps, and even virtualized apps from Citrix—can all be accessed from one unified workspace to provide end users with all of the resources they want, at the speed they expect, with the efficiency business demands.
Workspace ONE is a digital workspace platform that simply and securely delivers and manages any app on any device by integrating access control, application management and multi-platform endpoint management. It is available as a cloud service or for on-premises deployment.
