Are you wondering about licensing for the new VMware Horizon Suite and each of its component bundles? Following is a quick guide to Horizon Suite licensing.

Because of the preponderance of multiple devices per person in the workplace, VMware decided to go with named-user licensing for the Horizon Suite. Why? Named-user licensing allows each named user to access the Horizon Suite from any of their devices. The Horizon Suite is software for a mobile workforce. An end user can sit at their desk and access their View desktop, their applications, and their data from their desktop computer, then go to a meeting or head out to the airport and still be able to access their desktops, data, and applications from any HTML5 web browser on an iPad, iPhone, or Android mobile device. Mobile users, mobile devices…the Horizon Suite accommodates this mobile lifestyle.

The VMware Horizon Suite 1.0 includes the VMware Horizon View, VMware Horizon Mirage, and VMware Horizon Workspace bundles. You can also purchase each bundle separately. Here is a table summarizing the licensing scheme for the whole Horizon Suite, as well as for each bundle that you might purchase separately.
