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, by connecting Horizon Cloud to those pods using the VMware Horizon® 7 Cloud Connector™.

  • 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™ with Hosted Infrastructure.

Note:

Starting with the current release, the terms pod and node are used interchangeably.

Current Version

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

Note:

New pods deployed into Microsoft Azure from the control plane starting with this release and existing ones updated to this release have software version numbers higher than 1082. The version number for a pod in Microsoft Azure is displayed in the pod's summary page when you view it using the Horizon Cloud Administration Console.

For pods deployed into Microsoft Azure that have version numbers lower than 1082, 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. 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 Node 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The previous releases are superseded by the latest release. Documentation for the superseded versions is replaced in this docs.vmware.com portal, to keep the documentation at the same level as the cloud service. The release notes for these versions only are available.

In the previous versions, this control plane managed nodes in Microsoft Azure only. Nodes deployed in the superseded releases have software version numbers lower than 1082. A node's version number is displayed in the node's summary page when you view it in the Horizon Cloud Administration Console. If your nodes have version numbers lower than 1082, some of the new features will not be visible in the Administration Console or will not be available for those nodes until the nodes are updated to the current version. Contact your VMware Horizon Cloud representative to initiate the process of updating your existing nodes to the current version. The overall node update process is described in the Updating Your Horizon Cloud Node topic.
