This intensive five-day, extended-hours course gives you the skills to deliver virtual desktops and applications through a single virtual desktop infrastructure platform. This course builds your skills in installing, configuring, and managing VMware Horizon® 7 through a combination of lecture and hands-on labs. You will learn how to configure and deploy pools of virtual machines and how to manage access and security of the machines. You will also gain skills in application management using VMware App Volumes™ and VMware User Environment Manager™. You will learn how to use App Volumes to deliver applications and data to desktops and users in seconds and at scale, managing application lifecycles from installation to update and replacement. You will also learn how to use User Environment Manager to provide personalization and dynamic policy configuration across virtual, physical, and cloud-based environments to simplify end-user profile management
