As an introduction to the technical advancements in Horizon 7.1, this video will review the technical and logical architecture of Horizon, as well as the main components. With this new release, VMware Horizon 7.1 extends just-in-time delivery from virtual desktops to published applications by leveraging our Just-in-Time Management Platform (JMP). With JMP, the operating system (OS), applications, and user personalization are assembled on demand for users. Users get their desktops, their apps, their settings, and their preferences, all based on where they are connecting from at that moment and what type of device they are using.
Administrators use VMware Instant Clone Technology to rapidly recreate and maintain desktop VMs and, now, with Horizon 7.1, RDSH server VMs. Applications are provided on demand with VMware App Volumes. User personas and permissions are managed in real time by VMware User Environment Manager. Finally, Horizon 7.1 enhancements to the Blast Extreme display protocol improve performance even on poorly performing networks. Horizon 7.1 includes lots of new features in addition to the above-mentioned fast provisioning of RDSH servers with Instant Clone Technology and the Blast Extreme Adaptive Transport component added to Blast Extreme.
