What Does App Volumes Do?

Agile Services Delivery

By leveraging VMware’s Instant Clones, App Volumes, and User Environment Management, JMP untangles the operating system, applications, and user personalization. By doing so, all the component pieces together can be reconstituted on-demand to deliver Just-in-Time desktops and apps across any infrastructure topologies – delivered to any device.

Simplified Application and User Management

Provide application and user management across virtual desktop and RDSH/ published application environments powered by VMware Horizon, Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops. Supports enterprise-scale capabilities such as streamlined updates and assignments, quick and easy rollbacks and application lifecycle management.

Dramatically Lowers IT Costs

Supports a truly stateless desktop with no trade-off between user experience and costs. Delivers zero-downtime updates, and one-to-many provisioning lowers storage and operational costs.

Enables Reliability Through a Modern Architecture

Provision applications faster, deliver context-aware user policy and isolate apps as needed for a personalized, reliable and consistent user experience.

VMware App Volumes

The Lowest Capital and Operational Costs for Application Delivery and Management

"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.”

 

Austin Park, Principal Consultant, LCMC Health

Benefits

Powerful Application and User Management

App Volumes makes it easy to deliver, update, assign, and manage the lifecycle of applications and users across virtual desktop (VDI) and published application environments. Context-aware user policy and profile management provides secure and personalized access to desktops and apps.

Building block for JMP

JMP (pronounced jump) is the next-generation desktop and application delivery platform included in VMware Horizon Enterprise. JMP leverages Instant Clones, App Volumes, and User Environment Management technologies to untangle the operating system, applications, and user personalization. By doing so, all the component pieces together can be reconstituted on-demand to deliver Just-in-Time desktops and apps across any infrastructure topologies – delivered to any device.

 

Lower IT Costs without Impacting Users

App Volumes delivers a customizable and persistent user experience across desktop sessions, reducing management costs by efficiently delivering applications from one virtual disk to many desktops or published application servers.
Support a truly stateless desktop with no trade-off between user experience and costs. Manage applications in volumes, reducing storage capacity requirements by 70% without impacting network and compute resources and decouple operating system images and applications to help reduce the number of images being managed by up to 95%.

Ready for the cloud

Application delivery and user management services are built on an extensible platform for cloud-based technologies. Included are out-of-the-box integrated services such as application delivery, user management and monitoring for cloud-based environments.
