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. By the end of the book, you will have built a working App Volumes environment and acquired the skills to build and run a production environment.

In this chapter, we have covered a high-level introduction to App Volumes, looking at what it is, how it works, and what it can deliver.

We then went on to cover exactly where App Volumes fits into the overall VMware EUC portfolio, bearing in mind that products such as ThinApp and Mirage seem to deliver almost the same functionality.

Finally, we saw how to get the most out of this book, and you were introduced to the Example Lab that you can build along the way in each chapter.

In the next chapter, Chapter 2, Architectural and Feature Overview, we will start to look a little deeper into each of the App Volumes components.
