Users can export their personal applications from one VDI onto a file share and import their applications onto the next VDI they happen to get assigned! Persistent applications in a non-persistent world!
Key new features include
Application import and export
Users are empowered to export their AppSense StrataApps Application Datastore to a wide variety of external locations such as removable USB drives, Network Shares, File Servers and even cloud based storage infrastructure such as DropBox, SkyDrive and Box.net. It can also be used in conjunction with AppSense DataNow to provide anywhere access to their applications stored safely within existing IT infrastructure. By providing the option to export your StrataApps Application Datastore to a multitude of locations, users can centrally store all of their existing applications and simply import them into any new desktop session or onto any new device in just a few clicks. Multiple exports can be created to provide individual libraries of logically grouped applications, for example, a user may wish to Export their user introduced communication applications such as Skype, MSN Messenger, Tweetdeck and GoToMeeting clients or Media applications such as iTunes, BBC iPlayer and QuickTime. This then empowers a user to selectively import only the initially required applications to a brand new desktop or device first for immediate access to those applications and then later import the rest of their AppSense StrataApps Application Datastore.
