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.

In this chapter, we have covered everything concerned with designing your App Volumes environment. We started off by walking you through a typical approach to an App Volumes project, and how to get started and gather the information you need to take into the design phase of a project.

We then went on to discuss the key things you need to consider when creating your design, along with best practice.

In the next chapter, we are going to start to build out our Example Lab and install the App Volumes software.
