Course Overview:

This three-day VMware Horizon 7: Design Workshop Training [V7] course presents a methodology for designing a VMware Horizon® solution. The design methodology includes recommendations for the type of information and data that must be gathered and analyzed to make sound design decisions for the client systems, the desktop options, the VMware vSphere® infrastructure, and VMware Horizon components. VMware best practices are presented for each phase of the design process. In this course, you apply your new knowledge by working with other participants to design a VMware Horizon solution for a real-world project.
