Overview of this book

VMware Horizon 7 has been a buzz since it was announced. One of the major reasons is the introduction of the new Instant Clones feature. This book will complement the product documentation by providing real-life examples of how it is implemented along with the latest features and components of the platform. We'll explore the latest features of the platform, including those added through product acquisitions such as User Environment Manager and App Volumes. Further on, you will also be introduced to the new capabilities added to the core product such Linked-Clone RDS pools. Upon completion of this book, you will have an understanding of the capabilities and benefits VMware Horizon can provide to your organization, and how each of its components are implemented.

Enabling Writable Volumes

Writable Volumes are enabled as part of an AppStack assignment, and are used with Horizon clients who are accessing traditional desktops, not RDS servers.


Future versions of App Volumes will likely restore the ability to enable Writable Volumes separately from AppStacks. Refer to the release notes and documentation for future releases to see if the option returns.

To enable a writable volume, when creating an AppStack assignment you click on the slider next to the Writable Volume: option to set it to Yes as seen in the following screenshot. This option occurs during step 4 of the procedure outlined in the section of this chapter titled Assigning AppStacks.
