Checkout VMware’s Latest EUC Product Releases

vmware_horizon_viewThis week VMware released some EUC focused product updates that I think you will be interested in. I’ve gone through and picked my top 3 features for each release. All three product updates should now be available via the VMware Downloads portal.

Horizon 7.0.3

My top 3 release highlights:

  1. Horizon PowerCLI – Now you can use PowerCLI to pretty much do anything you can via Horizon Administrator. (Getting started with PowerCLI 6.5 and Horizon View)
  2. Support for Horizon and vCenter 6.5 HA
  3. Additional Windows 10 support

Horizon Client 4.3

My top 3 release highlights:

  1. 30% Blast Extreme bandwidth reductions ‘out of the box’ – Similar to the optimizations VMware made to the default PCoIP configuration a few years ago, we have optimized the Blast Extreme protocol for the masses. However, you are still free to change the GPO settings should you so wish.
  2. Blast Extreme (H.264 decoding) with Multi-Monitor support
  3. The ability to select which monitor on which to display your virtual desktop session

App Volumes 2.12

My top 3 release highlights:

  1. Improved Active Directory Integration – You can now add multiple AD domain controllers into App Volumes Manager. This is something I’ve been pushing for internally. If you don’t use load-balancers in your environment, you were only able to add in a single Domain controller which became a SPOF.
  2. Improved login & application launch performance – 30% to 50% decrease in login times.
  3. Office 365 (Office 2016) support through AppStacks
