User Profiles on App Volumes Writeable Volumes – The evolution continues!


As we look at profile management & profile delivery solutions available today in the market, and the pains that come with managing roaming profiles with folder redirection, we can see that there is clearly room to introduce simplicity in this space. Managing users’ workspaces at scale, in the cloud, or on-premises requires more simplicity and centralized management. A simple solution should not require you to bring up lots of SQL servers or manage the full stack without any flexibility for changes. A centralized solution should bring with it the separation of concerns between the various components that make up a user’s profile. 

With simplicity, centralization and reliability in mind, we wanted to give our customers some directional guidance on how we will approach customer needs for profile management and delivery with VMware App Volumes.

  1. Consolidating profile storage on writable volumes using the UIA+Profile template rather than 3 template options available today. Customers can leverage just one template to persist user installed apps or user profiles or both.
  2. Removing the virtualization layer between the user’s profile and its storage on the writable disk to provide a faster and more reliable user experience.
  3. Introducing caching of user data to provide faster resilient access to application data like .OST files with the flexibility to back up the data to your preferred storage infrastructure.
  4. Integrating with VMware User Environment Manager to granularly manage the profiles delivered through writable volumes.
