When you use redirection to store user profiles, the user profile is redirected to a new permanent location.
You have three possible locations to redirect user profile information:
|Redirect to the same location as the virtual desktops and RDSH servers (recommended)||You can redirect the user profile to a file server in the same location as the virtual desktops and RDSH servers by using a utility server. The profile data never leaves your Horizon Cloud Service tenant. For performance and security reasons, this option is best. When using Dynamic Environment Manager with Horizon Cloud Service, a utility server is required to store the user profile.|
|Redirect to an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) instance||You can redirect user profiles to a file server in the same physical data center as the virtual desktops and RDSH servers. These resources can be in a separate virtual data center using IaaS provided by the Horizon Cloud Service provider. An IPsec tunnel can be used to connect the two virtual data centers.|
|Redirect across the VPN||You can redirect the user profile across your VPN to a file server in your main data center. Latency and bandwidth are key factors in successfully redirecting back to your data center.|
