In This article, VMware View Composer Server 7.0 is used for Desktop Virtualization.  VMware gives its own Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) in the name of Horizon View which enables IT, managers, to control the desktop Services.  It can be used to create Desktop Pools to offer Floating and Dedicated Desktops to end users. It delivers Virtual Desktops and Applications through a single console. VMware Horizon is to be installed over your existing VMware vSphere environment to automate the environment and helps in decreasing the cost of Desktop and increasing the security of the environment. In this post, I have discussed the components and the architecture of VMware Horizon View.

Horizon View 7 Components:

Standard Connection Server – The first Connection Server installed in the environment.

Replica Connection Server – Additional Connection Servers that replicate from the standard connection server

Security Server – A stripped down version of the Connection Server, designed to sit in the DMZ and proxy traffic to the Connection Servers.  A Security Server must be “paired” with a Connection Server.

Enrollment Server – A new role introduced in Horizon 7.  The Enrollment Server is used to facilitate the new True SSO feature.
