About the Reviewers


In this chapter, we discussed what VDI actually is and the different options for delivering the end user experience, compared VDI with desktop and application publishing, and how each solution works. We then wound the clock back to 2002 and looked at the history of where VDI began for VMware.

The final sections covered the latest VMware Horizon 6.0 release and the three different editions—Horizon View Standard, Horizon Advanced, and Horizon Enterprise—and what's included in each edition.

In the next chapter, we are going to start drilling down into the technology a little deeper and look at how some of the technology features included with Horizon View fit together in the overall view and how they work.
