Chapter 1. Introduction to App Volumes

In this chapter, you will get a high-level introduction to App Volumes. We will talk about how it works and what benefits it can bring to your desktop environment.

We will also look at where it fits within the overall VMware End User Computing (EUC) portfolio, where you would use App Volumes compared to some of the other application delivery/packaging technology, before finally discussing some of its key use cases.

This book provides you with both the theory and the practical elements of App Volumes. Each chapter will explain specific areas of the solution and then give you the opportunity to try them out using an Example Lab. You will be introduced to the Example Lab at the end of this chapter.
