Runecast Analyzer VMware Horizon Beta Ready for Testing


While Runecast Analyzer supports and proactively helps you protect the VMware SDDC stack (vSphere, vSAN, NSX), VMware Horizon is one of the products that we have been consistently asked to support as well. We are now happy to deliver it! This beta is available for all Runecast customers and vExperts with a valid NFR license. 

We are looking forward to receiving your feedback on the proactive issue scanning in your Horizon environment. Your feedback will help us fine-tune the product prior to its GA release. Of course, we are more than willing to assist you with any aspect of your beta testing.

Horizon Beta Main Functionality:

  • Support for the proactive issue detection in VMware Horizon (versions 7.4 – 7.6 supported in the Beta, for GA supported versions will be: 6.1 – 7.6)
  • Horizon Best Practice analysis and reporting
  • Automatic correlation of Horizon and vSphere objects for proactive configuration issue analysis
