VMware App Volumes, Part 3: Configuring an App Stack
In Part 2 of this series, I went over how to install and configure the various App Volumes components. Now that it’s installed, we can start to create App Stacks and assign them to users and/or computers.
What’s an App Stack?
Before we step into the process of creating an App Stack, I wanted to quickly review what an App Stack is.
As I mentioned in Part 1, an App Stack is the term VMware uses to describe the application layers created by App Volumes. An App Stack consists of a virtual disk that contains everything an application needs to run. This can include the executables, DLL files, and registry keys. When an App Stack is loaded, the contents of the virtual disk are seamlessly merged into the system. As far as the user can tell, the applications are natively installed on their system.
