VMware Horizon 8: Deploy and Manage plus App Volumes Fast Track

This five-day accelerated, hands-on training course is a blend of VMware Horizon® 8: Skills for Virtual Desktop Management, VMware Horizon 8: Infrastructure Administration, and VMware App Volumes™, and VMware Dynamic Environment Manager™. Eight days of content are taught in five-days of extending learning.

This training collection gives you the hands-on skills to deliver virtual desktops and applications through a single virtual desktop infrastructure platform. You build on your skills in configuring and managing VMware Horizon 8 through a combination of lecture and hands-on labs. You learn how to configure and deploy pools of virtual machines and how to provide a customized desktop environment to end-users.

You learn how to install and configure a virtual desktop infrastructure platform. You learn how to install and configure VMware Horizon® Connection Server™ and VMware Unified Access Gateway™. You also learn how to configure a load balancer for use with Horizon and how to establish Cloud Pod Architecture.

Additionally, you learn how to use App Volumes to deliver applications and data to desktops and users in seconds and at scale. You gain skills in managing application life cycles from installation to update and replacement. You also learn how to use Dynamic Environment Manager to provide personalization and dynamic policy configuration across virtual, physical, and cloud-based environments to simplify end-user profile management.
