Prove your knowledge of VMware Horizon 6 remote app publishing

Put your knowledge of VMware Horizon 6 Remote Desktop Session Host to the test, including how to publish remote apps and how to set up an RDSH farm.

With support for RDSH in Horizon 6, VMware allows IT administrators to deliver more apps than ever from its desktop virtualization platform.

Released in 2014, Horizon 6 was a direct strike against Citrix, which has supported app remoting with XenApp for many years. Now IT admins can publish individual virtual apps with Horizon 6, which includes support for ThinApp applications, cloud-based apps, virtualized Citrix apps and remote desktop session hosted apps. The great appeal of remote applications is that they live on the server rather than a user's device, so admins can easily update and secure apps in the data center. In addition, admins can deliver remote apps seamlessly between desktops and mobile devices because they don't have to rely on a specific operating system.

Now that you know what makes remote app publishing so valuable, it's time to prove how much you know about publishing apps with a Remote Desktop Session Host (RDSH) in VMware's Horizon 6.
