Preface

Summary


In this chapter, you have been introduced to an important and powerful component of the Horizon installation: VMware Horizon Composer. You have learnt what is required to deploy Horizon Composer, what the limits of Composer are, and how to perform its installation and configuration.

We also discussed how to back up the Horizon Composer configuration, which includes the RSA key container and Horizon Composer database.

We concluded this chapter by discussing how to restore the Horizon Composer database and RSA key container or SSL certificate, and how that process varies based on the recovery scenario.

In the next chapter, we will implement Horizon Security Server, the component of a Horizon installation that enables secure access to Horizon resources from over the Internet.
