  15. Module 2: Microsoft SoftGrid Application Virtualization Concepts • Describe problems organizations encounter when dealing with application management • Describe the benefits of SoftGrid computing in a technical nature • Define SoftGrid computing • List and explain various SoftGrid system components • Understand the SoftGrid environment

  16. Application Management Life Cycle • Deployment • Updates • Support • Termination

  17. Application Virtualization

  18. Benefits of Microsoft SoftGrid Application Virtualization • Conflict Free • Pre-Configured Applications • Multiple Versions • Preservation of Source Code • Centralization • On Demand Delivery

  19. Feature Block 1 and 2 • Package .sft don’t have to be delivered at one time • Sequencer can mark certain blocks of the .sft as critical launch phase or Feature Block 1 (FB1) • During initial stream after FB1 downloaded application can launch • All other blocks are stored in Feature Block 2 (FB2) • When user accesses feature not in FB1 individual blocks of data downloaded from FB2 • Operation known as Out of Sequence Operation • User customized settings are stored in UsrVol_sftfs_v1.pkg and stored in user’s AppData

  20. Considerations • Sequencing applications requires extensive knowledge of application • Knowledge of how to install the application • Knowledge of how to configure the application • Limitations of Virtualization • Boot-time applications • Background services • DCOM and COM+ applications • Drivers • Internet Explorer (Add-ins can be virtualized)

  21. Application Virtualization Environment Overview • Microsoft SoftGrid Application Virtualization Sequencer • SoftGrid Management Console • Microsoft SoftGrid Application Virtualization Virtual Application Server • Microsoft SoftGrid Application Virtualization Management Web Service • Microsoft SoftGrid Application Virtualization Data Store • Microsoft SoftGrid Application Virtualization Client • MSI Utility for Microsoft Application Virtualization

  22. What Happens? • Microsoft SoftGrid Application Virtualization Platform Review • Sequencing • Backed Server • Client Launch • Pre-Launch Deployment • Microsoft SoftGrid Application Virtualization Desktop Configuration Refresh • The Launch Process:

  23. Module 3: Application Virtualization Configuration • Describe all minimum requirements needed to install the Microsoft SoftGrid Application Virtualization Components • Detail deployment scenarios available • Complete a full installation and configuration of the Microsoft SoftGrid Application Virtualization Components

  24. Suggested Minimum System Requirements • System Center Virtual Application Server • SoftGrid Application Virtualization Data Store • SoftGrid Application Virtualization Management Web Service • SoftGrid Management Console • SoftGrid Application Virtualization Sequencer • MSI Utility for Microsoft Application Virtualization
