The Infrastructure Planning and Design team has released an updated guide: Microsoft Application Virtualization 4.6.

This IPD guide, updated for App-V 4.6, provides actionable guidance for planning your application virtualization infrastructure. With App-V, your organization can respond to the complex challenge of managing applications. This guide simplifies your App-V planning process; updates now include support for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, including such features as BranchCache; support for 64-bit clients; and server-sizing data.

Strategically planning your infrastructure can help you avoid problems before they begin, allowing you to serve your customers more accurately and reliably, as well as saving you time and money.

  • Defining the technical decision flow through the planning process.

  • Listing the decisions to be made and the commonly available options and considerations.

  • Relating the decisions and options to the business in terms of cost, complexity, and other characteristics.

  • Framing decisions in terms of additional questions to the business to ensure a comprehensive alignment with the appropriate business landscape.
