Horizon suite licensing

Con questo articolo vorrei chiarire, le modalità di licensing dei prodotti che compongono la suite. Per scriverlo ho estratto qualche riga dal whitepaper VMware Horizon Family Pricing, Packaging, and Licensing:

Horizon View and its components are licensed by concurrent connection (defined in the
VMware EULA as a “Powered on Desktop VM receiving a connection”)
• Available in quantities of 10 or 100 licenses

Horizon Mirage and its components are licensed by per named user.
• Available in quantities of 10 or 100 licenses.

Horizon Workspace and its components are licensed by per named user
• Available in quantities of 10 or 100 licenses.                
Horizon Suite Named User

Horizon Suite Named User contains Horizon View, Horizon Workspace, Horizon Mirage and
vCenter Operations Manager for Horizon View
• Horizon Suite and its components in this package are licensed by named user
• Available in quantities of 10 or 100 licenses.

Horizon Suite Concurrent User contains Horizon View, Horizon Workspace, Horizon Mirage
and vCenter Operations Manager for Horizon View
• Horizon Suite and its components in this package are licensed by concurrent user


• Available in quantities of 10 or 100 licenses.

Si deduce che i prodotti singoli si possono acquistare per named user (o concurrent connection per View), e la suite intera può essere acquistata per Named User o Concurrent User.

Tutto chiaro? E cosa succede se acquisto Mirage per   named user ed i miei utenti utilizzano diversi client? Posso avere più CVD per ogni utente ? La KB 2042975 chiarisce che :
Each named user who has access to a Mirage-managed endpoint consumes one license. One named user can have multiple Mirage-managed endpoints, and this named user still consumes only one license
