VMware introduces VMware Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure

VMware, specialized in cloud infrastructure and business mobility, announced it will deliver VMware Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure. The integration helps customers accelerate the move to Windows 10 and brings VMware virtual desktops and applications to the increasing global presence of Azure in the enterprise -- available in 38 regions globally.

Horizon Cloud gives the ability to use a single cloud control plane, which gives customers more flexibility to choose their preferred infrastructure for delivering and managing virtual desktops and applications. Leveraging VMware's cross cloud strategy, customers can choose from several deployment options and can dynamically switch options if use cases change, employees move or economics shift. 

Options
Horizon Cloud offers options including:

  • Fully Managed Public Cloud Infrastructure from VMware - Designed for organizations looking to outsource management of infrastructure to the cloud for a desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) experience and great for quick scaling and predictable economics.
  • Leverage Public Cloud Infrastructure from Microsoft - Connect Azure Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) to Horizon Cloud to deliver and manage Horizon virtual desktops and applications, aimed at organizations with an Azure subscription.
  • Bring Your Own On-Premises Infrastructure with Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) Appliances - Designed for organizations that desire greater control over their virtual desktop infrastructure and for those with tight security or performance requirements.

VMware Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure is expected to be available in the second half of 2017.
