In this blog post I will show you how easy it is to create a VMware App Volumes AppStack and how that AppStack can then be easily deployed to one or hundreds of users.
When configuring App Volumes with VMware Horizon View an App Volumes AppStack is a read only VMDK file that is added to users virtual machine and then the App Volumes Agent merges the 2 or more VMDK files so that the windows operating system see them as just 1 drive. This way the applications look to the Windows OS as if they are natively installed and not on a separate disk.
To create an App Volumes AppStack follow these simple steps.
- Log in to the App Volumes Manager Web interface
- Click Volumes
