OK I admit I am a little late to the party with this post but I feel it’s important none the less.
The Cloud Volumes acquisition was well talked about during the VMWorld 2014 keynote with a live demo also presented.
I was lucky enough to attend a deep dive session on App Volumes (the rename was announced during the session) and the solution did look rather impressive and certainly is telling about how VMware see the future of Application Delivery for desktops.
I appreciate there are other products that provide a similar solution and I am currently looking into each one as part of my role.
One advantage VMware will have is they can integrate it into the existing Horizon licensing model and it will be interesting to see where they pitch it when its announced.
For those interesting in seeing a full guide on how to deploy the technology there is now a full deployment guide located here
I am always interested in peoples experiences in deploying these kind of tool sets whether they are good or bad. Please feel free to comment and let me know.
Thanks for reading
