With Horizon 7, you can create desktop pools that include thousands of virtual desktops. You can deploy desktops that run on virtual machines (VMs) and physical machines. Create one VM as a master image, and Horizon 7 can generate a pool of virtual desktops from that image. The master image is also known as a base image or a golden image.

For more information about how to create a base image or golden image or how to configure virtual machines for cloning, see the Setting Up Virtual Desktops in Horizon 7 document.

In Horizon Console, you can create instant-clone desktop pools or automated desktop pools that contain full virtual machines.
