After you publish an image, you can manage that image using the Horizon Universal Console. A published image is an image that has successfully completed the Horizon Cloud sealing process and Horizon Cloud can use it to provision RDS farms (in the case of RDSH-capable images) or VDI desktops. Other terms sometimes used to describe such images are sealed images and assignable images. Sealing an image is sometimes referred to as publishing the image or converting the image to a desktop.
