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.

App Volumes is not just limited to working in a virtual desktop environment; it can also be used to deliver applications to servers that deliver application sessions or published applications to end users rather than a full desktop experience.

In Chapter 1, Introduction to App Volumes, we covered the published applications use case and that it is a perfect fit for App Volumes. Basically, you create a stateless application server farm with no actual applications physically installed on the servers. Instead, you attach AppStacks containing the applications,...
