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.

Chapter 8. Delivering ThinApp Packages with App Volumes

In this chapter, for those that have not used this solution before, we will start by discussing what the ThinApp solution is and what it offers. We will then go on to look at the use cases and how and why you would deliver ThinApp packaged applications with App Volumes.

Once we have described the technology and the use cases, we will go on to look at a couple of scenarios: how to create and deliver a new ThinApp package, including how to create a simple package, and then how to deliver existing ThinApp packages with App Volumes.
