VMware Horizon 7 is a commercial desktop-virtualization product designed to manage and secure applications and virtual desktops and ensures the end-user can access it from anywhere and at any point of time. It is easy to have a fundamental knowledge of VMware Horizon 7 but it is way more challenging and difficult to implement and fine-tune it according to your business needs. This learning path overcomes this challenge and ensures you gain the basic to advanced practical knowledge required to manage and implement Horizon 7 efficiently in your organization.
This comprehensive 3-in-1 course aims at providing you the best possible way to learn how to design, architect, implement, and deploy your virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) with VMware Horizon 7. It provides in-depth content balanced with tutorials that put theory into practice. The focus is on giving you both the understanding and practical examples that will allow you to master the art of creating desktop resources using VMware Horizon 7.
This training program includes 3 complete courses, carefully chosen to give you the most comprehensive training possible.
The first course, Learning VMware Horizon 7, starts with an overview of the architecture and latest features of VMware Horizon 7. You will then learn how to design and deploy your Horizon 7 environment. Next, you will learn how to build two operating systems and optimize them for your VDI. Finally, you will walk through the different methods of delivery for the instant clone, linked clone, and full clone options.
The second course, Advanced VDI with VMware Horizon 7, starts by demonstrating advanced installation and configuration, which will help you to customize Horizon 7 according to your business requirements. You will then delve into the features of Horizon 7 such as just-in-time delivery with instant clone; modernized life cycle management, which ensures faster application delivery; better user experience; smart policies, in order to improve security; and many more. This advanced-level course will teach you how to deliver virtual desktops and applications through a single platform, multiple deployment scenarios, Horizon client and agent security, integration with third-party software, best practices, and troubleshooting techniques.
The third course, Designing and Deploying VMware Horizon View 7, introduces you to the security aspects of Horizon View with SSL certificates and True SSO and shows you how these solutions can be implemented. You will then build a virtual desktop OS and several different desktops, ready for delivery to end users. You will also utilize the advantages afforded by the modern desktop and application delivery architecture of Horizon View and deliver only applications by publishing these to end users and delivering desktop sessions, rather than full desktops. With the help of these features, you will reduce the storage space required, and cut down on operational costs, by deploying truly stateless desktops. Towards the end of this course, you will investigate these features and configure Horizon View to deliver applications and desktop sessions to end users, thus ensuring painless application packaging and installation.
By the end of this Learning Path, you will be well-equipped to create desktop resources by using Horizon desktop pools and fine-tune the end user experience to ensure the best optimization from your virtual desktops.
