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.”

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%.
