The organization shared the news during VMware Explore 2022, an annual conference. Techzine is on site in San Francisco.
VMware unveiled upcoming updates to Horizon Cloud, the largest DaaS solution in its offering. VMware also shed light on the future of Workspace ONE UEM, a unified endpoint management solution.
VMware Horizon Cloud
VMware is working on a new Horizon Cloud release. The solution includes virtual desktop hosting and management in Azure’s public cloud environment. According to VMware, the upcoming release reduces customers’ infrastructure costs by up to 70 percent. The release date and new functionality are unknown at this time.
In addition, the organization revealed that VMware Horizon Managed Desktop will be available shortly. Unlike the existing solution, customers don’t have to worry about deploying and configuring virtual desktops. The service supports both cloud and on-premises environments.
Workspace ONE UEM
Workspace ONE UEM customers will soon be able to manage VMware Horizon desktops and third-party devices. In addition, VMware is launching prebuilt dashboards (DEEMs) for organizations with frontline employees. The dashboards provide insight into the performance, bottlenecks and user data of frontline devices.
Furthermore, Workspace ONE will be equipped with DEEM Guided Root Cause Analysis technology. The technology uses machine learning algorithms to identify the cause of device issues. IT administrators receive an overview of the possible causes when an outage takes place.
Finally, VMware is expanding its Workspace ONE Freestyle Orchestrator. The solution allows admins to automate workflows of Windows and Mac endpoints in a central environment. The new update adds support for mobile devices and third-party apps.
