Simplify VMware Horizon Printing

Although IT organizations get value from delivering remote desktops and applications to the enterprise, VMware routinely falls short when it comes to effectively deploying printer queues in a zero, thin, and thick client configuration.

IT professionals value VMware Horizon for its scalability, accessibility, and security. End users easily gain access to mission-critical applications with a consistent workspace from nearly anywhere and from nearly any device and all the critical data remains in the data center.

With these benefits comes complexity. Although IT organizations get value from delivering remote desktops and applications to the enterprise, VMware routinely falls short when it comes to effectively deploying printer queues in a zero, thin, and thick client configuration. This makes it not only convenient but imperative to find a solution that simplifies printer management in a VMware Horizon environment.

This paper outlines how a VMware Horizon environment works to deliver print jobs to a printer, explains the pitfalls and dangers of printing from a VMware environment, and shows how Printer Installer solves the many problems associated with VMware printing.

Without Printer Installer, your printing options in VMware Horizon are limited to printer redirection—printers that are redirected from the local workstation into the virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI)—or VDI session/location based printers—printers that are mapped into the Desktop VDI with drivers preloaded in the master image—and the printing process varies if print servers are centralized in the data center or are distributed throughout the remote sites.

PrinterLogic offers IT environments that rely on VMware Horizon, a proven solution for the common issues associated with VMware Horizon printing. Printer Installer:

  • Reduces expensive print infrastructure and single points of failure by eliminating print servers
  • Empowers end users and relieves the burden on IT support staff through its acclaimed Self-service Installation Portal
  • Obviates the need for printer-related scripts and GPOs while allowing for precise automatic and dynamic printer deployments

End users benefit from a seamless and reliable printing experience while IT admins enjoy print management that is far more effortless and robust than is possible with the standard VMware printing methods.
