You can bundle applications and data into specialized read-only containers called AppStacks. You can assign AppStacks to users, groups, or accounts, and deliver applications through them.

Using the App Volumes Manager, you can create, update, edit, and delete, and manage AppStacks.

You must be aware of the following considerations when you are creating and provisioning AppStacks:

  • Physical endpoints and AppStacks are supported only under the following constraints:

    • VHD In-Guest mode is the only supported machine manager mode.

    • You must have a constant network connection.

    • The OS on the physical device must be non-persistent, streamed, or both.

  • Provisioning of Internet Explorer into an AppStack is not supported. Due to the tight OS integration and dependencies, use an application isolation technology such as VMware ThinApp, and then use App Volumes for delivery of the isolated application package.
