Welcome to the documentation for VMware Horizon® Cloud Service™! This documentation can help you learn about and use Horizon Cloud effectively.

Use the links below and in the left-hand navigation pane to learn:

  • How to use Horizon Cloud with existing VMware Horizon® 7 pods, located on-premises or in a VMware Cloud™ on AWS software-defined data center (SDDC), by connecting Horizon Cloud to those pods using the VMware Horizon® 7 Cloud Connector™.

  • How to use Horizon Cloud with capacity in VMware Cloud™ on AWS, by using Horizon Cloud to deploy pods into a VMware Cloud™ on AWS SDDC.

  • How to use Horizon Cloud with capacity in the Microsoft Azure cloud, by using Horizon Cloud to deploy pods into Microsoft Azure.

  • How to use Horizon Cloud with managed infrastructure from VMware, known as VMware Horizon® Cloud Service™ on IBM Cloud (formerly known as VMware Horizon® Cloud Service™ with Hosted Infrastructure).

Note:

As of February 7, 2019, VMware Horizon® Cloud Service™ on IBM Cloud is the new brand name for what was formerly known as VMware Horizon® Cloud Service™ with Hosted Infrastructure. In the product documentation for current releases, customers will continue to find legacy references to previous names. These references will be phased out in subsequent releases.

The product documentation for older releases will continue to reflect the names they had at the times they were released.

Current Version

The information at the documentation links below reflects the features available in the current level of the cloud service.

Note:

For this release's starting pod version number for new pod deployments into Microsoft Azure, see the Release Notes. When your pods are at versions lower than that number, some of the new features will not be visible in the Administration Console or will not yet be available for those pods until the pods are updated to the current version. Each pod's version number is displayed in the pod's summary page when you view it in the Horizon Cloud Administration Console. Contact your VMware Horizon Cloud representative to initiate the process of updating your existing pods to the current version. The overall pod update process is described in the Updating Your Horizon Cloud Pod topic.

Previous Versions

The previous releases are superseded by the latest release. Documentation for the superseded versions is replaced in this docs.vmware.com portal, to keep the documentation at the same level as the cloud service. You can navigate to the release notes documents for previous releases using the left-hand navigation pane.
