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.

In this chapter, we took a deeper look at how ThinApp works in conjunction with App Volumes to deliver AppStacks containing isolated applications.

We covered a few scenarios; firstly, how to create a new .msi ThinApp package and create an AppStack with it, and then we looked at a couple of ways of taking existing ThinApp packages and deploying them onto AppStacks.

In the next chapter, we will look at how App Volumes integrates with VMware Horizon View.
