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.

Architectural Planning of Horizon Workspace 1.5 for External Users

You can also call it “Learn Horizon Workspace architecture in 5 minutes”.

I found it to be a really cool and simple explaination of a complex architecture. Enjoy!

First Post!

So finally i have a blog.

Honest to God my intention wasn’t to open one, i started with the idea of building up my own KB articles with detailed steps and considerations about how and why i do things in a certain way. The problem is that since there is never enough time i tend to suck when it’s time to write documentation, so i thought i would put it in the public eye to force myself to do a decent job when it comes to it.

And then i quickly realised that most of the online resources where i learn new things or how to improve knowledge about the things i already know are always great blogs written by great people, so i thought: “why not a blog?”

I am going trough all phases of a new born creature: i have no idea if i will have enough time to dedicate to it, i don’t know if it will come out the way i expected it, if i have what it takes to make it interesting enough for others to read it… the list goes on and on but i decided i will do it for myself first of all, if others can benefit from it will be a great plus for me so don’t be shy with the comments and go ahead and motivate me 😉

Most of my posts will be dedicated to my present working activities which usually are VMware focused and lately mainly in the EUC line of products, so expect a lot of articles about Horizon Workspace since it’s the most recent product and not so many blogs articles are around quite yet. I’m sure i will get off the track from time to time just for a change.

Since i just built a new home lab that i will be using to support my posts i might even describe how i built it if it’s of some interest for anyone.

Well then, see you at the first real post!!
