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.

Starting the provisioning process

Open a console to the App Volumes Manager server and launch the App Volumes Manager management console. You will now see the login screen, as shown in the following screenshot:

From the App Volumes Manager console, click the VOLUMES menu option (1), and then click the AppStacks tab (2).

Now click the Create AppStack button (3), as shown in the following diagram:
