The insurance company uses a single URL and employs a DNS service to resolve sales.example to the nearest pod in the nearest data center. With this arrangement, sales agents do not need to remember different URLs for each pod and are always directed to the nearest data center, regardless of where they are located.

When a sales agent connects to the URL in Horizon Client, the Agent Sales global entitlement appears on the list of available desktop pools. When a sales agent selects the global desktop entitlement, the Cloud Pod Architecture feature delivers the nearest available desktop in the pod federation. If all of the desktops in the local data center are in use, the Cloud Pod Architecture feature selects a desktop from the other data center. If a sales agent leaves a desktop session logged in, the Cloud Pod Architecture feature returns the sales agent to that desktop, even if the sales agent has since traveled to a different region.
