AppVolumes

vmWare Horizon View offers a unique and compelling functionality called AppVolumes which are like“App Containers”  attached to a Virtual Desktop image, appearing on a user’s desktop as if they were an integrated part of the image versus being attached after the fact. This allows enterprise admins to grant application access, singly or in app groups, to users based on their login identity, attached or detached on the fly where applications appear (or disappear) in seconds on the virtual desktop. In large VDI or Windows 10 environments, functionality can drastically reduce the administration time on image maintenance, where applications can be attached to the desktop post image boot or deployment.
