Learning VMware App Volumes

By: Peter von Oven

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.

Chapter 12. Deploying App Volumes in a Citrix XenApp Environment

In the previous chapter, we looked at one of the key features of App Volumes: the ability to work with other vendor's solutions, and not just VMware technology and products. In that chapter, we specifically focused on building virtual desktop machines using Citrix XenDesktop and having the applications delivered by App Volumes, followed by how to deliver AppStack-based applications by publishing them using Microsoft RemoteApp.

In this chapter, we are going to take a closer look at the other key Citrix solutions and how to deploy App Volumes to deliver applications that are published using Citrix XenApp.

The following diagram illustrates how App Volumes would look within a Citrix XenApp architecture:

The Citrix XenApp process for publishing applications remains exactly as it is for any other Citrix XenApp deployment, but now, rather than having the applications physically installed onto each server that is hosting the applications...
