You might choose to provide end users with remote applications rather than remote desktops. Individual remote applications might be easier to navigate on a small mobile device.

End users can access remote Windows-based applications by using the same Horizon Client that they previously used for accessing remote desktops, and they use the same Blast Extreme or PCoIP display protocol.

To provide a remote application, you install the application on a Microsoft Remote Desktop Session (RDS) host. One or more RDS hosts make up a farm, and from that farm administrators create application pools in a similar manner to creating desktop pools. A farm can contain up to 200 RDS hosts. A View pod can support up to 200 farms.

Using this strategy simplifies adding, removing, and updating applications; adding or removing user entitlements to applications; and providing access from any device or network to centrally or distributed application farms.
