Overview of this book

Desktop virtualization can be tough, but VMware Horizon 7.8 changes all that. With a rich and adaptive UX, improved security,and a range of useful features for storage and networking optimization, there's plenty to love. But to properly fall in love with it, you need to know how to use it, and that means venturing deeper into the software and taking advantage of its extensive range of features, many of which are underused and underpromoted. This guide will take you through everything you need to know to not only successfully virtualize your desktop infrastructure, but also to maintain and optimize it to keep all your users happy. We'll show you how to assess and analyze your infrastructure, and how to use that analysis to design a solution that meets your organizational and user needs. Once you've done that, you'll find out how to build your virtualized environment, before deploying your virtualized solution. But more than that,we'll also make sure you know everything you need to know about the full range of features on offer, including the mobile cloud, so that you can use them to take full control of your virtualized infrastructure.

In this chapter, we have covered some of the methods and areas to consider when troubleshooting issues within your Horizon View environment. Consideration should be given to the bigger picture, ensuring you fully understand the issues the user is facing, and which area of the user's desktop experience could be causing these issues. Where possible, use monitoring tools such as vRealize Operations for Horizon to find the root cause of the problem. There are a number of areas within Horizon View you should check if you believe you have infrastructure problems. These include the dashboard and the event log within the Horizon View Administrator.

Finally, we covered getting further help from the VMware Knowledge Base.

We have now reached the end of this book, and by reaching this point, you should now have a greater understanding of the architecture of the Horizon Suite...
