VMware Horizon Suite

VMware Horizon Suite is a collection of products and technologies designed to help information technology (IT) administrators deliver desktops and applications and secure data on a variety of endpoint devices.

Horizon Suite is made up of three technologies:

  • Horizon View - VMware's desktop virtualization platform
  • Horizon Mirage - provides centralized image management for both physical and virtual desktops
  • Horizon Workspace - enterprise mobility management software that provides users with a single workspace for their data and applications, accessible from any device

Workspace pulls in the functionality of Horizon Application Manager, a tool for managing software access that was released in 2011; Horizon Data, a file-sharing application; and Horizon Mobile, a mobile virtualization and app wrapping tool.

VMware announced Horizon Suite at VMworld 2012 and released the product in February 2013.
