VMware App Volumes & User Environment Manager: The Perfect Combination for Managing OST Files
As customers move towards a model of non-persistent VDI, they start to realize the benefits this approach has over persistent VDI. For one, non-persistent VDI allows IT to easily set up pools of desktops that can revert back to an original state after being used, instead of having to manage each individual persistent desktop throughout its lifecycle.
