VMware Horizon 6 Goes Beyond Cloud Gateway Services

The Horizon 6 release is the latest evolution of VMware VDI efforts and integrates a number of prior VMware efforts together. VMware first introduced Horizon as an application manager gateway back in 2011.

Rob Baesman, senior director of product management for enterprise desktops, End-User Computing at VMware, explained to Datamation that the application manager functionality has evolved since 2011 and is now know as the workspace functionality within Horizon 6.

Baesman explained that the Horizon workspace provides users and administrators with a single point of access to a unified virtual workspace.
