VMware Horizon enables a digital workspace with the efficient delivery of virtual desktops and applications that equips workers anywhere, anytime, and on any device.

Starting in Q2 2018, Horizon introduced an option of Extended Service Branch (ESB) in addition to the Current Release (CR) branch. ESBs receive three planned periodic maintenance updates – typically 6 months, 9 months and 15 months after the base version release.
