The Horizon Console

The Horizon Console is the newest HTML5 based web interface to manage Horizon 7 Environments. Horizon console is used to create and manage virtual desktops and published desktops and applications. Horizon Console also integrates VMware Horizon Just-in-Time Management Platform (JMP) Integrated Workflow features for managing workspaces.


Looking at the Applications Tab we can immediately gain a summary view of the Application Pools.  All the applications available in this view is what we can group and publish to our users without the need for a full desktop.
