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.

This penultimate chapter is going to focus back on VMware technology and look at how you build and configure a Horizon View environment designed to deliver hosted applications to end users with the applications being configured as AppStacks and delivered by Horizon View.

The Horizon View hosted applications solution is not too dissimilar to the Microsoft or Citrix environments for published applications that we have covered previously, as it uses the Microsoft RDSH as its foundation. Horizon View then provides the connection broker elements, the same broker that is used to broker Horizon View virtual desktop machines, to connect end users to published...
