New Reviewer’s Guide for View in VMware Horizon 7 – A Series of Mini-Guides

VMware End-User Computing Blog

The first of four mini-guides in a series of seven have been posted—these bring you the latest updates of View, the main component of VMware Horizon 7. Unlike previous Reviewer&#rsquo;s Guides, these updates are posted as soon as each section is completed, and these shorter pieces that are easier to digest. With the exception of the Overview and the Installation and Configuration sections, each mini-guide focuses on a particular use case, accompanied by exercises to explore relevant features. The mini-guides cover topics such as preparing virtual machines for desktop pools, using instant clones, setting up desktop pools (full- and linked-clones), exploring the benefits of Smart Policies, and provisioning users.
