At TechEd Europe 2014 in Barcelona, the independent research group Project Virtual Reality Check (Project VRC) announced the release of a publicly available white paper with performance results and best practices for Microsoft App-V 4.6 and 5.0. The white paper —based on lab environment testing— contains detailed App-V performance best practices that system administrators and IT managers in mid- to large-sized enterprises can apply to any new or existing App-V infrastructure.
The primary goal of Project Virtual Reality Check phase IV is to investigate the overall scalability impact of Application Virtualization solutions within VDI. The three biggest and most commonly used vendors in the VDI market space are investigated: Citrix Application Streaming, Microsoft App-V and VMware ThinApp. These three solutions were compared in different streaming configurations. This whitepaper does a true deep dive on Application Virtualization impact within VDI.
