"VMware App Volumes is actually one of the cooler technologies we employ here at the hospital. We are able to separate the OS image from the application images. If there is a change in any application, you can make that change and present it to the user exactly when they want it. Even if only one person wants it, it allows us to install that application and use App Volumes to present that application to just that user, and make them happy. From an IT perspective, we want to say yes more than no. App Volumes makes it possible for us to say yes.”
