With application pools, you can deliver a single application to many users. The application runs on a farm of RDS hosts or a desktop pool.
When you create an application pool, you deploy an application in the data center that users can access from anywhere on the network.
An application pool has a single application and is associated with a single farm or desktop pool. To avoid errors, you must install the application on all of the RDS hosts in the farm or desktop pool.
When you create an application pool, Horizon 7 automatically displays the applications that are available to all users rather than individual users from the Start menu on all the RDS hosts in the farm or desktop pool. You can select one or more applications from the list. If you select multiple applications from the list, a separate application pool is created for each application. You can also manually specify an application that is not on the list. If an application that you want to manually specify is not already installed, Horizon 7 displays a warning message.
When you create an application pool, you cannot specify the access group in which to place the pool. For application pools and RDS desktop pools, you specify the access group when you create a farm or desktop pool.
An application supports the PCoIP and VMware Blast display protocols. To enable HTML Access, see the VMware Horizon HTML Access Installation and Setup Guide document.
