Video Description

App Volumes provide a virtualized, real-time application delivery engine for the virtual desktop infrastructure and is designed to enable VDI deployments to ensure greater flexibility, agility, and cost-reduction.

This video starts with an overview of the architecture and components used to design an optimized solution. You will then learn how to install and configure App Volumes for different use cases such as VMware View Integration, using VMware Thin App, Citrix Xen App, and more. Throughout the course, we provide hints, tips, and tricks as well as best practices. By the end of the video, you will have built a working App Volumes environment and acquired the skills to build and run a production environment.

Style and Approach

A fun course that supplies in-depth content balanced with tutorials that put theory into practice. The focus of this course is on giving you both the understanding and the practical examples that will allow you to build a working App Volumes environment and acquire the skills to build and run a production environment so that you can learn at your own pace.
