Many organizations skipped Windows Vista and addressed their entire application inventory for the first time in a long while when moving to Windows 7. Forward looking companies are considering the future; both virtual desktops and the cloud and preparing their application portfolios for these more dynamic environments.
In this session, the Godfather of Microsoft App-V, TMurgent's Tim Mangan, will focus on using Application Virtualization as a way to isolate user applications from the operating system and each other. This includes two kinds of applications.
End user applications, which might run on desktops, in VDI sessions, or Remote Desktop Servers.
Middle tier applications, typically hosted on a back end server remote from users and accessed via a client or web browser.
Microsoft App-V simplifies packaging and distribution of end user applications for dynamic environments. Microsoft Server App-V allows you isolate those middle tier applications from the OS for fast deployment for peak loading in the cloud. Once prepped for delivery, these applications may be easily deployed whenever and where-ever you need them in the future.
