In June 2012, VMware released Horizon Application Manager 1.5.
In the beginning of this year, 2012, VMware’s Project Octopus went beta; http://blogs.vmware.com/euc/2012/05/project-octopus-public-beta-now-available.html
Via Horizon you can give users access to enterprise applications. Think about ThinApp’d and SaaS apps.
Octopus is another application you can make available via Horizon App Manager. Octopus is a on-premise virtual appliance but nevertheless, you can give your users access to this Octopus appliance via Horizon.
I created a document (with help from some of my VMware colleagues) to make Octopus available via Horizon. I aware Octopus is still beta and not every one can have access to the code. However, I would like to show beta participants how to make Octopus available via Horizon.
