Step-by-step guide to designing, deploying and managing VMware App Volumes DESCRIPTION Delivering applications within a virtual desktop environment has always proven to be a challenge given the stateless nature in which virtual desktops are deployed. How can organizations deliver applications each time an end user logs in to his or her desktop given that the desktop they just logged in to has been created as a brand-new machine and basically has nothing installed on it? App Volumes delivers applications in real-time to virtual desktop machines, enabling VDI deployments to return even greater flexibility, agility and cost reduction. Enterprises can fully utilize the stateless virtual desktop model in all use VDI uses cases. For users such as developers who required a persistent, fully-stateful virtual desktop machine of their own, they too can take advantage of the advantages of a stateless virtual desktop model enabling better return on investment as well as centralised application delivery. This book will guide you on a journey of how to deploy an App Volumes environment, with easy-to-follow step by step instructions with real-life screenshots based on a test lab environment that you can build as you go. The book starts with an overview of what App Volumes delivers and the challenges it resolves. From there, we will start to explore the architecture and components that make up the solution, concentrating on how to design and plan your own environment. Once you have understood the technology and use cases, then it’s time to start installing and configuring the App Volumes software. Once installed we can then start to look more closely at the core components to the App Volumes solution and how to build your application layers. As part of this, we will also cover some of the more advanced management tasks for managing the environment. Once you have built the core environment and created some examples of application layers, we will then look at how to integrate App Volumes with some of the other EUC technologies that are available in the market such as VMware ThinApp, Microsoft RDSH, Citrix XenApp (Citrix Virtual Apps), and Citrix XenDesktop (Citrix Virtual Desktop). Throughout this book we will provide you with useful hints and tips, along with best practices, all based on experience of deploying App Volumes within the Enterprise. At the end of the journey, you will have built a complete working App Volumes environment and will have acquired the skills and knowledge to deploy your own production environment. KEY FEATURES Understanding the concept of application layering App Volumes architecture overview Installing App Volumes Working with App Volumes, App Stacks and Writeable Volumes Integration with VDI, app publishing, and desktop publishing solutions Advanced configuration and management WHAT WILL YOU LEARN This book will enable you to learn about how to deliver real-time applications using VMware App Volumes. You will start by learning about the architecture of the solution, the use cases, and what benefits it delivers. Following the introduction, you will learn how to install the App Volumes software, how to configure it and then how to create your application layers to ready them for delivery to end users. Finally, you will learn how App Volumes integrate into not only other VMware EUC technologies, but also some of the market-leading third-party solutions from Citrix and Microsoft. WHO THIS BOOK IS FOR This book is designed for virtual desktop administrators and architects who are looking to design and deploy a solution that can deliver applications on-demand to end users who are using virtual desktop machines. App Volumes enables them to move to a stateless VDI model which is both more cost effective and easier to manage. To understand the concepts and technology used in this book you will need to have a good working knowledge of the Microsoft Windows operating systems for both desktops (namely virtual desktops) and servers (used for installing App Volumes and other functions such as AD, file sharing, and RDSH). You will also need experience in managing and administering a vSphere environment used to host the solution. As App Volumes is all about delivering applications, you should have a good working knowledge of Windows app delivery methodologies as well as publishing apps using Microsoft RDSH.

Top datacenter virtualization consultants Eric Maillé and René-François Mennecier begin by introducing vSphere 5 from the viewpoint of the datacenter manager and professional. They present essential definitions, advantages, and functions; review vSphere 5’s architecture; and introduce core components such as vCenter Server and ESXi 5.0. Next, Maillé and Mennecier turn to implementation, presenting detailed examples, schemas, and best practices drawn from their extensive experience. They share practical insights into budgeting, scheduling, and planning; choosing the right architecture; and integrating vSphere with existing datacenter elements, including servers, storage, clusters, network infrastructure, and business continuity plans. They conclude with a start-to-finish case study: a datacenter virtualization project designed to support specific business objectives. Coverage includes • Assessing the potential benefits of datacenter virtualization in your environment • Organizing and managing a smooth migration to the virtualized datacenter • Anticipating specific challenges and risks associated with datacenter virtualization • Making tradeoffs to optimize stability, elasticity, scalability, and cost • Choosing the best installation/configuration options for your environment • Effectively linking vSphere 5 virtualization to existing datacenter elements • Driving more value from vSphere 5’s powerful new datacenter features • Providing storage to efficiently support your hosted VMs, now and in the future • Managing limited memory and other server constraints • Leveraging new options for service continuity and high availability • Using backup architecture as a lever to reduce costs
