VMware Horizon 7.8

در این مطلب به معرفی و امکانات جدید VMware Horizon 7.8 می پردازیم و در انتها نیز لینک دانلود VMware Horizon 7.8.0 Enterprise Edition   قرار داده شده است.

یکی از محصولات پرکاربرد شرکت VMware که این روزها در بین مدیران شبکه کشور ما بسیار طرفدار پیدا کرده ، بسته نرم افزاری VMware Horizon است. از این محصول شرکت Vmware برای مجازی‌سازی Desktop و Application ها می توان استفاده کرده. با استفاده از این نرم‌افزار شما امکان کنار گذاشتن سیستم‌های سخت‌افزاری (کامپبوترها) که برای کاربران مورد استفاده قرار می‌گیرد را دارید. با اختصاص VDI به هر کاربر و خرید تجهیز مناسب برای این کار دیگر نگران نگهداری از سخت‌افزار، سیستم‌عامل و نرم‌افزار کاربران خود نباشید.

ساختار اصلی این سرویس را Connection Server تشکیل میدهد که با استفاده از vCenter فرایند های کنترلی خود را انجام می دهد.

میتوان گفت یکی از ایرادات وارده به این سرویس پر طرفدار کنسول مدیریتی آن است. نبود صفحه وب سازگار با مرورگر های مختلف نقطه منفی است که  چنانچه تا به حال از این سرویس استفاده کرده باشید حتما با آن روبرور شدید!

یکی از اتفاقات مهم در این نسخه رفع این ایراد و استفاده از تکنولوژی HTML 5 در کنسول مدیریتی VMware Horizon است . البته نباید از تغییرات نسخه های جدید کلاینت نیز چشم پوشی کرد .شرکت Vmware بر خلاف نسخه های قبلی تغییرات زیادی را در این نسخه اعمال کرده است که بخشی از آن در ادامه با هم مرور میکنیم.
