To ensure the best possible user experience, have a properly optimized and configured desktop and RDSH image.

With Horizon Cloud Service, you can use your own image or an image provided by the VMware Horizon Cloud Service team.
  • The image is uploaded to the tenant platform.
  • You can complete the installation of applications, tune and optimize the image, make updates, and so on.
  • When your image is ready, it is converted to an image template.
  • You can use this image template for desktop and application assignments in Horizon Cloud Service.

When the image needs to be updated, you can either update an existing image template or upload a new image. To update deployed desktops and RDSH servers, you associate a new image with a desktop or remote application assignment. For more information, see Image Management Strategies.
