Launching apps and desktops using VMware Horizon in AppsAnywhere
Deliver any Windows app to any device on and off campus, thanks to AppsAnywhere's integration with VMware's leading VDI technology; Horizon
In the short video below you'll see how AppsAnywhere connects with VMware Horizon to launch apps and desktops on-demand.
Unified Application Delivery
Unified Application Delivery (UAD) is a new approach to traditional software deployment that brings together multiple delivery methods into one place, with just one point of access for students, end-users and IT admins.
Launching apps using VMware - Video Transcription
AppsAnywhere integrates with VMware’s leading VDI technology to deliver both apps and desktops to students. In this short video you’ll see how this integration works, including launching a native VMware app and a virtual desktop, too.
On our demo site, you’ll see that both Internet Explorer 11 and Visio 2016 launch via VMware Horizon. Let’s go ahead and click launch on Visio. The VMware Horizon client opens to prepare the application, and Visio launches soon after. And thanks to Single Sign on, Students get a seamless user experience without needing to re-enter their login credentials.
Let’s have a look at launching desktops through AppsAnywhere. In the menu you can filter by Desktop, where you can see all the available VMware Desktops that can be launched directly from AppsAnywhere.
Thanks to this integration we’re giving universities a way of delivering all their apps to students with just one point of access, regardless of the delivery technology being used. Whether it’s through VMware, Cloudpaging, Parallels Remote Application Server or SCCM, there’s just one launch button for each app.
Instead of a full on VDI deployment, many universities often choose to use 'app remoting' or an RDS solution to deliver software to their students, often because it’s a less expensive way of doing so than VDI. But is this the right way to go?
With the release of AppsAnywhere v2.3 we've built a deep integration with Parallels RAS, enabling IT to deliver both apps and desktops, as well as supporting Chromebooks with HTML5 delivery.
AppsAnywhere now supports 10 application delivery methods, thanks to our latest integrations with Microsoft Software Centre Configuration Manager (SCCM) and Microsoft App-V.
