Difference between Horizon 6 Advanced and Entreprise "Unified Portal" and Horizon 6 Workspaces

Can someone do a bit of explanation for the following:

I am Looking to understand the use of terminology in the marketing and how it fits together.

Terminology:

-VMware Workspace

-VMware Horizon Workspace

-VMware Workspace Portal

-Unified Workspace

With the following references

AND Use of the terminology "Unified Workspace"

How Is the "Unified Workspace" as described in the link below different from the "VMware Workspace" also described within the same document?

http://www.vmware.com/files/pdf/products/horizon-view/VMware-Horizon-View-Pricing-Licensing-FAQ.pdf

They appear to be different in that the File Sharing Capability is only available under "VMware Workspace"

There is good documentation on the "VMware Workspace" element

http://www.vmware.com/files/pdf/techpaper/vmware-horizon-workspace-reviewers-guide.pdf

http://pubs.vmware.com/horizon-workspace-10/index.jsp#com.vmware.hs-install.doc_10/GUID-71C2045E-293...

But I can only find limited documentation on "Unified Workspace"  The Video below Talks about a "unified Workspace" but has images showing "VMware Workspace"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2SstavM0r9A

More specifically,

- Are they one portal with different licensing components?  (I assume this is the case but the documentation is very limited)

- Are they two different portals?

     If they are two different portals how are the two integrated?

Assistance appreciated.

Hi Sean.

I can understand that it can be confusing, a lot of changes has been done over the last few years.

The file sharing component of Horizon Workspace have been discontinued since Horizon Workspace 1.8.2, eventually going to be replaced by Airwatch Secure Content Locker.

I'll try to answer your questions:

1. - Are they one portal with different licensing components?  (I assume this is the case but the documentation is very limited)

1. A: Yes, there is one portal.

2. - Are they two different portals?

2 A: No there are not two portals.

3.   If they are two different portals how are the two integrated?

3 A: There is only one portal.

4. How Is the "Unified Workspace" as described in the link below different from the "VMware Workspace" also described within the same document?

4. A: Its the same thing, its just a way of describing the functionality.
