Delivering applications to virtual desktops is one of the big challenges faced by VDI administrators. Different strategies are often required for delivering applications to persistent and non-persistent desktops. Installing apps on non-persistent desktops can be especially challenging. Any changes to the desktop are lost on logout, so new applications must be added to a base image and deployed during a maintenance window. If users or departments require applications that differ from the baseline, administrators must create separate desktop pools for these different application loads; this can significantly increase the storage and administrative overhead. VMware introduced App Volumes in December to address these issues.
