Azure VMware Solution (AVS) is a VMware SDDC infrastructure-as-a-service on Microsoft Azure where you can deploy VMware Horizon 8 desktops and applications. Check with your Microsoft representative on the availability of AVS.

You can select Azure as an available deployment type when you install Connection Server. You can also provide Azure as a deployment type during a silent installation of Connection Server. Once you select Azure as a deployment type, Horizon will automatically operate in a mode that is compatible with the Azure VMware Solution cloud admin privileges.

You can create instant-clone and full-clone desktop pools on AVS.

For the Horizon on Azure VMware Solution reference architecture, please see the Horizon 8 on Azure VMware Solution Architecture. For the latest Horizon support information for Azure VMware Solution, please see Knowledge Base article 80850.
