Overview

The VMware Horizon Cloud Service delivers feature-rich virtual desktops and applications using a purpose-built cloud platform that is scalable across multiple deployment options, including fully managed infrastructure from VMware, public cloud infrastructure from Microsoft Azure, or on-premises hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI). The service supports a cloud-scale architecture that makes it easy to deliver virtualized Windows desktops and applications to any device, anytime. And, with a flexible subscription model and turnkey solutions, organizations can easily get up and running and scale quickly.

With Citrix XenDesktop, you can mobilize your business by deploying virtual desktops and Windows apps onto mobile devices. Powered by XenApp, XenDesktop is capable of delivering entire desktops or even just the applications to any type of device.

XenDesktop enables IT to centralize security and control, and also to reduce IT costs through virtualization. The solution is simple to deploy and manage, and contributes towards increased employee productivity.
