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
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.
