Horizon View 5.3.1 is out and supports vSAN!

Today, VMware announced the General Availability (GA) of VMware Virtual SAN 5.5 and I’d like to take a moment to also introduce Horizon View 5.3.1. With this release, we are continuing the tradition of rapidly introducing innovations to market. And, now, the details:

  • Horizon View 5.3.1 supports VMware Virtual SAN 5.5. VMware Virtual SAN 5.5 is a component of VMware vSphere 5.5U1.
  • Horizon View 5.3.1 when used with VMware Virtual SAN 5.5 has been shown to reduce the total CAPEX cost of storage by up to 50%.
  • Horizon View 5.3.1 GA is intended for use with Virtual SAN 5.5 datastores only. There are no other new features in Horizon View 5.3.1 besides support for Virtual SAN 5.5.
  • Customers can purchase a Virtual SAN 5.5 license to deploy Horizon View 5.3.1.

Using View Agent Direct-Connection

VMware released this piece of software that was previously available to VMware employees only or specific use case for customers that would make specific requests.

I’ve been deploying and supporting Horizon View environments since version 4.5 and if like me you can’t understand the use of VADC other than customer POC or lab use than you should watch this video which explains scenarios and use cases where it could be useful.
