Hi - HP Helion Community Edition is a distribution you build and run-up in your own lab environment.

There is a great set of step by step instructions located at http://docs.hpcloud.com/helion/community/install-virtual/ that outlines the process and where you can download the necessary distribution.

The biggest prerequisite is a physical system ideally running Ubuntu 13.10 or 14.04 (e.g., a lab system you have access/control of). I was able to take a home lab server (in my case a desktop with a fair bit of RAM) and install the complete setup (from Ubuntu host to the final web browser accessible Horizon Portal).

Once you've worked through the steps, you get to the section titled Connecting to Horizon console and carry on from there.

Cheers,

Daniel.
