I recently published a white paper aimed at service providers offering VMware Horizon 7 for tenants adopting the digital workspace. Horizon 7 is a single-tenanted VDI and application platform, allowing IT administrators to manage not only desktop pools, but application delivery to their end-users.
The ‘digital workspace’ isn’t just a marketing term, it’s actually a “consumer simple” digital platform for end-users accessing their day to day and most critical applications. Underneath the hood, however, is a VDI architecture that has evolved and long since the days of the traditional desktop broker.
This white paper breaks down the digital workspace into five distinct layers, which have a direct correlation to tenant-facing functionality, service provider boundaries (for instance, firewall ports, user portal integration), core and management infrastructure.
