Learning VMware App Volumes

By: Peter von Oven, Peter V 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.

Acknowledgments

There are a few people I want to thank for the continued and ongoing support they have given me during the writing of this book. Firstly, and most importantly, I would like to thank my wife and daughters for their continued support while I spent many evenings and weekends writing—I couldn't do it without their support.

This book wouldn't have happened if I hadn't had support from some of the vendors. Firstly, I would like to thank my friend and colleague Arash Ghazanfari at Tintri for his support and knowledge of the storage market, and secondly, a thank you to Mark Maclean at Dell for lending me the server hardware used in the Lab examples.

I would also like to say, a big thank you to my reviewer, Barry Coombs, who I have collaborated with on a number of projects over the years. The other person I would like to than is friend and ex-colleague Steve Horne for his expertise and knowledge in defining how to approach any desktop or VDI transformation project.

Finally, a thank you to the Packt Publishing team for again giving me the opportunity to write this book and for their support, which has yet again been outstanding.
