What’s New March 25, 2021 (v2103, v1.10, v21.03, v21.1)

  • Horizon Cloud Administration Console is now Horizon Universal Console.
  • Universal Broker and multi-cloud assignments are now available for existing deployments of Horizon Cloud pods on Microsoft Azure. Universal Broker provides a single URL for end-users to access virtual desktops and apps, whether on-premises or in the cloud, as well as multi-cloud assignments that enable you to create dedicated and floating virtual desktop assignments that span multiple pods and sites.
  • Universal Broker and multi-cloud assignments now support Horizon pods on Azure VMware Solutions (AVS), enabling unified brokering of multi-cloud assignments across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments, supporting both Horizon pods and Horizon Cloud pods on Microsoft Azure.
  • App Volumes for Horizon Cloud pods on Microsoft Azure now supports Windows 10 Enterprise multi-session, allowing multiple users to each login into individual sessions with their own app assignments. App Volumes and MSIX app attach formats can be delivered to a session simultaneously, and the App Volumes agent will use the correct mode of virtualization for each format respectively.
  • Multi-cloud virtual desktop assignments for Horizon Cloud pods on Microsoft Azure now support multiple tenant subnets from either the pod’s VNet or from multiple connected, peered VNets. (Feature debuted on February 23, 2021)
  • Image Management Service for Horizon Cloud pods on Microsoft Azure is in Limited Availability. For more information and to request access to this feature, please email the VMware Horizon Cloud Service team at horizoncloudservice@vmware.com.
  • Administrators can now generate Agent DCT logs from within the console for virtual desktop assignments and Farms on Horizon Cloud pods on Microsoft Azure. This feature is in Limited Availability.

  • Changed Register-AzureRmResourceProvider for Register-AzResourceProvider
