Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V)
Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) enables enterprises to meet the needs of users and IT by empowering anywhere productivity and accelerated application deployment. App-V provides anywhere user access to applications that available on any authorized device without application installs. Virtual applications and user settings are preserved whether users are online or offline. App-V increases business agility through faster application deployment and updates with no user interruptions. It minimizes conflicts between applications, allowing enterprises to reduce application compatibility testing time. App-V together with Microsoft User State Virtualization (USV) provides users with a consistent experience and reliable access to applications and business data, no matter their location and connection to the Internet.
Service providers also utilize App-V to deliver ISV developed applications to their customers via the Software as a Service (SaaS) model. Using the flexibility of SaaS and the power of App-V, businesses can deploy rich applications with high reliability and low risk; without the capital or operational costs of an on-premise IT infrastructure.
Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) transforms applications into centrally managed services that are never installed and don’t conflict with other applications.
