‘Best Practices for Published Applications And Desktops In VMware Horizon Apps And VMware Horizon 7’ White Paper

VMware Horizon® 7 provides virtual desktop solution as well as an enterprise-class, application publishing solution. For users who do not require personalized virtual desktops and who handle a standard set of tasks, VMware Horizon Apps is the ideal solution. Horizon Apps offers published applications and session-based desktops, without VDI.

Horizon Apps leverages Microsoft RDSH servers to deliver published applications or desktops. Data, applications, and desktops are centrally managed and secured. Users access their published applications and desktops from a single digital workspace, through single sign-on from any authenticated device or OS.

Critical Horizon 7 features and components, such as the Blast Extreme display protocol, instant-clone provisioning, VMware App Volumes™ application delivery, and VMware User Environment Manager™, are integrated with published applications and desktops to provide a seamless user experience and an easy-to-manage, scalable solution.

Published applications and desktops provide the opportunity to reduce hardware, software, and operating costs, and simplify installation, upgrades, and troubleshooting.

When deploying an RDSH-based Horizon Apps solution, administrators must take a number of considerations and best practices into account. Areas to consider include VMware ESXi host sizing, RDSH image configuration and optimization, Horizon 7 configuration and policies, antivirus solutions, provisioning, and recurring maintenance.

Administrators will also want to consider integrating VMware JMP technologies, which include VMware Instant Clone Technology, App Volumes, and User Environment Manager.

JMP – Next-Generation Application and Delivery Platform

JMP (pronounced jump), which stands for Just-in-Time Management Platform, represents capabilities in VMware Horizon 7 Enterprise Edition and Horizon Apps Advanced Edition that deliver Just-in-Time Desktops and Apps in a flexible, fast, and personalized manner. JMP is composed of the following VMware technologies:

  • Instant Clone Technology for fast desktop and RDSH provisioning
  • App Volumes for real-time application delivery
  • User Environment Manager for contextual policy management

JMP allows components of a desktop or RDSH server to be decoupled and managed independently in a centralized manner, yet reconstituted on demand to deliver a personalized user workspace when needed. JMP is supported with both on-premises and cloud-based Horizon 7 deployments, providing a unified and consistent management platform regardless of your deployment topology.

The JMP approach provides several key benefits, including simplified desktop and RDSH image management, faster delivery and maintenance of applications, and elimination of the need to manage “full persistent” desktops.

Purpose

This guide provides best practices for anyone deploying a published application or published desktop solution based on Horizon 7.

Audience

This guide is for anyone installing or administering Horizon 7 or Horizon Apps. Readers should be familiar with basic installation and administration procedures, such as those described in Publishing Applications with VMware Horizon 7.
