Comparison between Horizon Cloud and Citrix Cloud on Azure

The last couple of weeks I have been working with VMware Horizon Cloud for Microsoft Azure, and tesing the bits and pieces about the platform, and especially I’ve been looking at how it compares against Citrix Cloud in general. Therefore I decided to write this blog post to maybe enlighten how it differs in terms of deployment and operations and how to get it up and running. you can review the requirements for Horizon Cloud for Azure deployment here –> https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Horizon-Cloud-Service/services/com.vmware.hconmsazure.getstarted.doc/GUID-DC011997-CE9E-4B38-9C4F-57104226218C.html#GUID-DC011997-CE9E-4B38-9C4F-57104226218C 

One thing I want to highlight that moving VDI to the cloud does not bring any real value unless it is for the proper reasons, in most cases the public cloud is still more expensive then running it on local infrastructure. The most common use-case if you can benefit from the automatic scaleability that cloud provides such as companies where the amount of users is fluctuating going from 10 – 100 users during working hours ( 7 AM – 5 PM) where you only need to pay for what you use in terms of infrastructure cost and licensing.

The architecture is quite simple, as Citrix Cloud it requres that we have an existing Azure subscription and with an existing Active Directory virtual machine running and an virtual network defined. After you have setup the connection it will deploy a Horizon Cloud Node(Node Manager) which acts as the hub between Horizon Cloud Control Plane and your servers and Active Directory.
