The long-awaited version for App Volumes has been released. For those who remember App Volume 3.0, it was taken down by VMware within a week (if I remembered correctly). It was a version that cannot be in placed upgrade and it was a new architecture completely.
It was a right move that VMware removed it and with version 4.0. This wasn’t the case.
In place upgrade was possible and co-existence of version 2.x and 4.x can be achieved.
To list a few of the new features below:
- Increase the number and speed of attachments through a new packaging and organizing the lifecycle of the Windows apps
- Able to manage Single Application or Group of Applications in a single stack
- Enable SSL encryption for SQL server
- AppStack Migration Tool: use for migrating App Volumes 2.18 to App Volumes 4.0
