Support workplace mobility, gone are the days of client-server computing where Windows ruled the day and end users were tasked to do their work from one device and one location. Today, end users are leveraging new types of devices for work, accessing Windows applications alongside non-Windows-based applications and are more mobile than ever. VMware Horizon Air cloud hosted desktops and apps.

VMware desktop and application virtualization solutions provide IT with a new streamlined approach to deliver, protect, and manage Windows or Linux desktops and applications on premises or in the cloud, while containing costs and ensuring end users can work anytime, anywhere across any device. Move to the mobile cloud. Gone are the days of client-server computing where Windows ruled the day and end users were tasked to do their work from one device and one location. Today, end users are leveraging new types of devices for work, accessing Windows applications alongside non Windows-based applications and are more mobile than ever. In this new mobile cloud era, managing and delivering services to end users with traditional PC centric tools has become time-consuming and costly. VMware desktop and application virtualization solutions provide IT with a new streamlined approach to deliver, protect, and manage Windows desktops and applications.

Vertical Solutions

VMware Horizon is tightly integrated with VMware Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC), which includes vSphere, vSAN and NSX. This integration provides a seamless turnkey solution and are of tremendous value to vertical industries., eliminating the need to build, test and support disparate storage, virtualization and networking products. Financial institutions often have multiple locations or branches and require continuous access to applications and data. Uninterrupted access to patient data and applications is essential in the healthcare industry. Distributed workforce, complex designs and security are common concerns within the manufacturing industry. National governments face strict security and compliance mandates that require a robust solution to ensure seamless productivity. Regional and local government — serving the public at the regional and local level requires a mobile workforce that can access applications and data while on the go.

You can reduce energy consumption by decreasing the number of servers in your data center. VMware server virtualization can reduce hardware requirements by a 15:1 ratio, enabling you to lessen the environmental impact of your organization’s IT without sacrificing reliability or service levels. Server and desktop hardware consolidation can also help you achieve a 20 to 30 percent lower cost per application, as well as defer data center construction costs by $1,000 per square foot. VMware vSphere with Operations Management allows for a 50 to 70 percent higher virtual machine density per host than commodity offerings.

VMware NSX Software-Defined Networking

Applications and data can reside and be accessible anywhere. With VMware NSX Software-Defined Networking you can reduce the time to provision entire networks in software from weeks to seconds. It abstracts virtual networks from the underlying physical network, providing the flexibility to run on top of any network hardware. With improved operational efficiency through automation, network operators can achieve faster deployment and greater agility. Enables network micro segmentation.

Provisioning VMware NSX Software-Defined Networking brings security inside the data center with automated, fine-grained policies tied to the virtual machines. It enables micro segmentation to significantly reduce the lateral spread of threats inside the data center. Security policies travel with the workloads, independent of where workloads are in the network topology. VMware NSX abstracts networking from the underlying hardware and attaches networking and security policies to their associated workloads.
