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.

Installing the App Volumes Agent

The next part of the process is to install the App Volumes Agent onto the RDSH host server you are using for provisioning, so that it registers itself with the App Volumes Manager, allowing you to start using it for application provisioning.

We have already covered the installation process in the Installing the App Volumes Agent section of Chapter 4, Installing and Configuring the App Volumes Software, so please refer to that chapter on how to do this. The process is exactly the same for servers as it is for desktops.
