VIDEO: Delivering Secure Role-Based Desktops with VMware NSX and App Volumes



VMware NSX with Horizon and App Volumes enables desktop IT to realize the efficiency and savings of a single pool of users combined with role-based security and real-time app delivery.



What is App Volumes?

VMware App Volumes™ (formerly CloudVolumes) provides real-time application delivery to end-users and desktops. IT can use App Volumes to instantly deliver applications and data to users without compromising user experience. Infrastructure and management costs are reduced by utilizing managed volumes. Unlike traditional application management solutions, App Volumes allows IT to deliver a desktop with no trade-off between user experience and costs.


How do Horizon and App Volumes work together?

App Volumes delivers native applications to VMware Horizon® virtual desktops on-demand through VMDKs, without modifying these virtual desktops or the applications.

This solution can be virtualized with VMware vSphere® and leveraged with Horizon to help quickly deliver applications to Horizon (with View) virtual desktops. Providing a way to significantly lower the cost of managing and maintaining Horizon desktops, App Volumes delivers on average a 30 percent reduction in storage volume versus Horizon 6 alone. Because App Volumes enables the benefits of a persistent desktop on top of a non-persistent pool, significant storage savings can be achieved.
