VMware App Volumes Provides Faster Application Delivery and Simplified Management
What Does App Volumes Do?
Agile Services Delivery
Leverage VMware’s Instant Clones, App Volumes, and Dynamic Environment Manager to simplify management of the operating system, applications, and user personalization. By doing so, all the component pieces together can be reconstituted on-demand to deliver desktops and apps across any infrastructure topologies – delivered to any device.
Simplified Application and User Management
Provide application and user management across virtual desktop, Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, and RDSH/ published application environments powered by VMware Horizon. Support enterprise-scale capabilities such as streamlined updates and assignments, quick and easy rollbacks and application lifecycle management.
Dramatically Lowers IT Costs
Support a truly stateless desktop with no trade-off between user experience and costs. Deliver zero-downtime updates, and one-to-many provisioning while lowering storage and operational costs.
Enables Reliability Through a Modern Architecture
With Apps on Demand, provision applications faster, deliver context-aware user policy and isolate apps as needed for a personalized, reliable and consistent user experience. Apps on Demand from App Volumes makes app delivery faster, app and image management more efficient, and helps with app modernization.
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.
Transform and Modernize Apps with Apps on Demand
App Volumes helps IT to move their legacy apps to the cloud with 99% app compatibility. For example, file types such as EXE, MSI, ZIP, JAR and virtualization formats like ThinApp and MSIX app attach are supported. All of this with no re-coding requirement.
App Volumes helps with app lifecycle management from updates, patching to redeploying apps across different VDI, DaaS, and app environments such as VMware Horizon, Citrix, and Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop with Windows 10 multi-session.
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.
Each App Volumes edition is available in two license models:
- Per Named User: For virtual environments with staff that need dedicated access to a virtual machine throughout the day.
- Per Concurrent Connection: For virtual environments with a high number of shift workers where machines are shared between workers throughout the day (e.g. students, shift workers).
