What is App Volumes?

In August 2014, VMware acquired a start-up called CloudVolumes. The CloudVolumes technology provided a virtualized, real-time application-delivery engine for virtual desktop infrastructures as well as physical desktops.

In December 2014, CloudVolumes was rebranded and named App Volumes, and offered as a part of Horizon Enterprise Edition.

So, what does App Volumes give you? At a high-level, App Volumes provides a real-time application-delivery and life cycle management solution that is used as a delivery system for your virtual and physical desktops.
