In this chapter, we have learned about Horizon desktop pools. In addition to learning how to create three different types of desktop pools, we were introduced to a number of key concepts that are part of the pool creation process.

We discussed the difference between Instant Clone, linked clone, and full clone virtual desktops, how Sysprep differs from QuickPrep, how to monitor the provisioning of a Horizon desktop pool, the types of issues that can prevent a pool from provisioning successfully, and how to grant users or security groups access to desktop pools using desktop pool entitlements.

In Chapter 11, Implementing Horizon Application Pools , we will examine how to stream individual applications directly to the Horizon client using Microsoft Windows RDS servers.
