Horizon Cloud on Azure – Assignments [Part-6]

Now, we have an image created. it’s time to proceed with assignment creation.
This article discusses the creation of the assignment for a single pod brokering type.
if one chooses the Brokering as Single POD Brokering then the admin page looks as below

Click on VDI & RDSH

Click on the NEW button
Now we will have options to select Desktops or Applications assignment
Select Desktops

There are 3 types of Assignments in Desktops
1–> Dedicated
2–> Floating
3–> Session

Dedicated: – Useful when a user needs the same desktop on every login and data is persistent across logins and reboots

Floating: – Useful for a team who works 24/7 or multiple shifts and data is not persistent across logins since after a log-off VM will get reset. To save data we can use VMware DEM/Windows roaming profiles or an equivalent solution

Session: – Same as floating but here we will get RDSH based experience and data is non-persistent across logins. we need a farm to be created before creating the session assignment. Ex: Windows server OS with Terminal services or WVD

We can use the same image for both Dedicated & Floating assignments.
