I have some questions regarding the licensing for VMware Horizon. We are looking to deploy a VDI infrastructure using Horizon for approx 30-60 user desktops. We are still in the planning phases.
We have 2 hosts licensed with VMware vSphere 6 Essentials and 1 vCenter Server 6 Essentials license. Purchasing a third host for development and testing.
Its my understanding that this excludes Horizon all together. What additional licensing would we need to allow us to use Horizon in this scenario? Since we’ve got the vCenter essentials can this simply be upgraded with a new license or does it need to be migrated away and perform a new install?
I am admittedly very confused reviewing the licensing documentation. Thanks for your feedback.
