Learning VMware App Volumes

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 explored the App Volumes Manager console. We looked at each of the configuration menu options and which tasks each one is responsible for in configuring and managing your environment.

You should now be able to confidently navigate your way around the management console and find the different tasks more easily. These tasks will be used in the coming chapters as we start to put the features of App Volumes to work in our Example Lab.

In the next chapter, we will discuss the first of these tasks and take a closer look at creating, building, and delivering AppStacks, so that we can deliver applications to our users in real time.
