Horizon 7, you can create desktop pools that include thousands of virtual desktops. You can deploy desktops that run on virtual machines (VMs), physical machines, and Windows Remote Desktop Services (RDS) hosts. Create one VM as a base image, and Horizon 7 can generate a pool of virtual desktops from that image. You can also create application pools that give users remote access to applications.
Farms, RDS Hosts, and Desktop and Application Pools You can create desktop and application pools to give users remote access to virtual machine-based desktops, session-based desktops, physical computers, and applications. You can also choose Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS), VMware PC-over-IP (PCoIP), or VMware Blast to provide remote access to users.
Advantages of Desktop Pools Horizon 7 offers the ability to create and provision pools of desktops as its basis of centralized management.
Desktop Pools for Specific Types of Workers View provides many features to help you conserve storage and reduce the amount of processing power required for various use cases. Many of these features are available as pool settings.
Creating Desktop Pools In View, you create pools of machines and select settings that give all the machines in a pool a common desktop definition. View can then deliver the desktops to clients. View can deploy desktops from single-user machines, which can be virtual machines that are managed by vCenter Server, virtual machines that run on another virtualization platform, or physical computers. View can also deploy session-based desktops from Remote Desktop Session (RDS) hosts.
Advantages of Application Pools With application pools, you give users access to applications that run on servers in a data center instead of on their personal computers or devices.
