Overview of this book

App Volumes provides a virtualized, real-time application delivery engine for virtual desktop infrastructure and is designed to enable VDI deployments to ensure greater flexibility, agility, and cost reduction. This book starts with an in-depth overview of the architecture and components used to design an optimized solution. We then show you how to install and configure App Volumes for different use cases such as VMware View integration, using VMware ThinApp, Citrix XenApp, and more. Throughout the chapters, we provide hints, tips, and tricks as well as best practices.

How does this book work?


Now that we have covered the introduction to App Volumes, let's just take five minutes to introduce you to how this book works and what you will need to get the most out of it.

This book will guide you through the key use cases for App Volumes, from the theory of how it works and how to design a solution, to the more practical elements, such as installation.

Each section of this book has been written based on everyday, real-world experiences of working with the product in both production and proof-of-concept/pilot environments.

In parallel with the chapters, you can set up your own lab environment, which will cover practical examples of how the technology works, giving you the option to follow the steps and try them for yourself. This can either be as an exercise while reading the chapters or to assist you in setting up a proof-of-concept, pilot, or live deployment.
