VMware App Volumes is a real-time application delivery system that enterprises can use to dynamically deliver and manage applications.
Applications are bundled in AppStacks and delivered by attaching a standard VMDK file to a virtual machine. You can centrally manage the applications with the App Volumes Manager, a Web-based interface that is integrated with Active Directory (AD) and vSphere. Administrators can assign, update, or remove applications at the next user login or in real time and there is no need to modify the desktops or individual applications.
Writable Volumes allow users to access their application data across sessions and devices.
Applications delivered using App Volumes look and feel natively installed and you can update or replace the applications in real time.
