Unidesk for Hyper-V Feature: Application Layering for Microsoft VDI

Posted by Ron Oglesby on Feb 13, 2015

microsoftstack_01In my last video blog, I showed how Unidesk for Hyper-V brings simplicity and scalability to the mangement of RDS collections and desktops. Today's video shows how Unidesk application layering technology makes application virtualization issues a thing of the past for Microsoft VDI.

Unidesk Chief Solution Architect Ron Oglesby demos Unidesk Application Layering for Microsoft VDI.
Watch more Unidesk feature demos with Ron on YouTube.

See how Unidesk for Hyper-V enables you to:

  • Capture any app as a read-only virtual disk (VHDX) layer that can be mounted and shared by many VMs. App layers look and feel as if they are locally installed (not isolated) for full interoperability.
  • Reduce space needs up to 80% by storing apps once per datastore instead of once per desktop.
  • Apply and audit layer updates with version management.
  • Rollback layers to earlier versions to “undo” patching mistakes or problems.
  • Train help desk and IT interns to become app packaging experts.

Check out our free download to see how easy layering makes application delivery and how it eliminates what Gartner calls the "Secret Bottleneck of VDI." Let me know what you think.
