New Book–VMware Horizon View 5.3 Design Patterns & Best Practices

View5.3_Design_&_BPBack in December the folks over at Packt Publishing released a new book around design for VMware Horizon View, VMware Horizon View 5.3 Design Patterns and Best Practices written by Jason Ventresco (blog / twitter). I was provided the opportunity to be a technical reviewer of the book and knew I was in for well written and excellent content on the subject as I had read Jason’s earlier Packt Publishing release Implementing VMware Horizon View 5.2 (my review of the book) and found it a great resource. His second book doesn’t disappoint, below is a break down of the overview and table of contents.


  • Identify the reasons why you are deploying Horizon View, a critical step to identifying your metrics for success
  • Determine your Horizon View desktop resource requirements, and use that to size your infrastructure
  • Recognize key design considerations that should influence your Horizon View infrastructure
  • Learn how third party add-on solutions can complement and enhance your Horizon View deployment

Table of Contents

  • Chapter 1 –Introduction to VMware Horizon View Design
  • Chapter 2 – Understanding Desktop Deployment Options
  • Chapter 3 – Understanding the View environment
  • Chapter 4 – Determining vSphere Resource Requirements
  • Chapter 5 – View Storage Considerations

Happy reading!
