Horizon View Design

VMware Design involves many phases starting from requirement definition to handover to operations. The Requirement definition clearly states about the project requirements, design considerations, existing infrastructure details, stakeholders expectation etc.

  • Requirement Definition
    • Use Case list
    • Resource Estimation
    • Operation Schedule
    • Network diagram
    • Hardware architecture
    • Software involved to implement
    • Server (hardware) list
    • Storage
    • DR
    • Antivirus
    • VDI configuration
    • View Desktop workflow
    • user profile
    • View Desktop technology
    • Applications [ IE, outlook, intranet apps…]
