We're a payroll company and understandably security is pretty important for us. When a user takes a laptop home you have to manage encryption in case they lose it. With everything in our data center, there's no risk of lost data because everything is run in the VDI. That's our primary use case for this product. I'm a systems engineer and we are customers of VMware Horizon View.
We primarily use the solution for developer access within the company.
Within my company, there are 50 employees using this solution.
We use this solution for remote users around the country.
I am a system engineer and this is one of the products that I assist people with by providing support.
The company I worked for were partners of VMware Horizon View. I worked as a system engineer.

Use as a test center for medical students was the primary purpose of the launch. The number of users seen included was about two hundred. The model was kiosk-mode. Each time, after the end of the virtual machine exam, it was presented. It had to change on the user.
We were spread across several offices and with the main production software tool and the weak WAN infrastructure, it was impossible to share data reliably. It seemed the only solution was to centralize the data and make it so the people using the data - the workers - could be anywhere. With past experiences in server virtualization, I investigated VMware View. It was the missing key that made this all work.
We are presently using Citrix XenApp 7.15 LTSR and are looking for an alternative.
Is VMware Horizon View a solid product to review and eventually purchase? Why?
