4.0 von 5 Sternen Einfacher Einstieg für Neulinge 20. Oktober 2011
Dieses Buch ist primär für Einsteiger gedacht. Es enthält u.a. die Implementierungsmöglichkeiten generell für App-V, Best practices zum Sequenzieren einer Anwendung sowie praktische Beispiele anhand von Firefox und Microsoft Office 2010. Zuletzt wird noch auf die Sicherheitsaspekte eingegangen.

Also ein schöner Einstieg bzw. Überblick für Neulinge in diesem Bereich. Für Nutzer die bereits Erfahrungen mit App-V sammeln konnten, ist dieses Werk wohl alter Käse.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Easy to understand, step by step approach to managing Microsoft's App-V 6. April 2011
Von D. Kusnetzky - Veröffentlicht auf
While doing research for my upcoming book on virtualization, I've read quite a number of other books on the topic. One of them is "Getting Started with Microsoft Application Virtualization 4.6", by Augusto Alvarez. I was impressed by how the material was organized and the step-by-step approach to managing Microsoft's application virtualization product. If you're planning to use Microsoft's App-V, you might find this book useful as well.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Getting Started with Microsoft Application Virtualization 4.6 12. April 2011
Von Greg Duncan - Veröffentlicht auf
[Full Disclosure Notice: The reviewed book was provided to me free by the publisher. This review is my own. The publisher has not seen it, nor prompted me in its content in any way, shape or form. All they did is provide the book free and ask me to review it... ]

Table of Contents
*Chapter 1: Introducing Application Virtualization in a Virtualized World
*Chapter 2: Understanding App-V Architecture
*Chapter 3: Preparing your App-V Environment and Installing App-V Management Server
*Chapter 4: Deploying the App-V Sequencer, Desktop Client, and Streaming Server
*Chapter 5: Taking the Initial Steps in the Sequencing Process
*Chapter 6: Sequencing Complex Applications
*Chapter 7: Managing Dynamic Suite Composition
*Chapter 8: Integrating App-V with System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2
*Chapter 9: Securing your App-V Environment
*Appendix: Reviewing App-V for Remote Desktop Services (Terminal Services)

Virtualization. Seems that's almost all we hear about in the IT corridors these days. Machine, Presentation, Storage, Application, everything is being virtualized. And each, while very different than the other, has the same basic foundational idea. Isolation.

Application virtualization is no different. The basic idea is to provide isolation scoped at the application level. To allow you to deploy applications to users without jacking up, or being jacked up, by stuff on their machines. Think having Office 2003, 2007 and 2010 all on the same machine. Without application virtualization, that would be pretty much impossible. With it, it's no only "possible" but kind of easy.

Microsoft's application virtualization product, App-V, provides the tools, services and servers to enable you to bring this magic to your users. This book is your springboard into the world of App-V

Starts of simple and builds toward complexity. I dig books that don't have their own learning curve requirement, that start you at the beginning and when you're done, you look down from the top you realize you've been climbing a pretty darn steep learning curve without even knowing it. Learning in-spite of yourself... lol. That's this book. Starts simple and by the end you're not only familiar with it, but are actually ready to start using App-V.

Comparisons to other Application Virtualization Options. There's a number of options in the application virtualization space. What those options are and how they are similar or different from App-V is well covered. It's not exhaustive as this book is supposed to be about App-V, but its more than enough to see what's out there and how they compare.

Where App-v doesn't fit. I appreciated that it was made clear where App-v shouldn't be used. The book helps you avoid the whole "if all you have is a hammer..." thing.

Dynamic Suite Composition. This was something I knew nothing about before I started the book, I didn't even knew it existed. I thought application virtualization was a one way mirror. That the virtualized app could see out, but nothing else could see in. The book's introduction to discussion of, App-V's Dynamic Suite Composition feature showed how this doesn't have to be true, that you can have one App-V app talk to another App-V app, i.e. dynamically combining them.

Think web browser and Acrobat. You'd first think that if you wanted Acrobat to be App-V'ed with a browser, you'd have to include them both in the same app-v sequence (aka package/file/etc.). But with Dynamic Suite Composition you don't have to. You can create two sequences, one for the browser and one for Acrobat and then use Dynamic Suite Composition to bring them together. Why is this cool? What if you had size web browsers App-V sequences (say six different versions of Firefox) that all needed access to Acrobat?

Real World example usage. This book did not shy aware from the hard examples. For example, deploying the App-V client in an enterprise is not a simple task, yet this book covered that. And there's fewer more complex applications, with more moving parts, than Microsoft Office 2010. Yet again, that's one of the examples walked though in the book. They might have gotten away with providing simpler examples "that demonstrated the concept" yet they took the "hard right" approach and jumped in with both feet into the "real IT world IT" where Office is everywhere and a very applicable example.

Well Written. I just thought the book was well written and even as a dev, easy for me to read and understand.

Improvements/Thoughts (i.e. what else I'd like to see)
This is not a knock against this book. I thought the book was great for its intended target (i.e. IT). But as a developer what I 'd like to see is more about how I can deliver my apps with this technology. To deliver pre-sequenced apps to my IT teammates. Or how, as a developer I can extended the capabilities of the App-V client/server.

Also I'd really like to see App-V baked into the Windows OS. Not having access myself to MDOP means I can't really play with it. I can't offer it to my users. I can't use to to deliver my personal projects either. Not every program or utility is a candidate for App-V but many/most are. I want the MSI madness to end. I 'd LOVE to give my apps to users in a single file, no install, no setup, one file that just works (cough... this maybe what AppX is going to be in Windows 8? We'll have to see...). If App-V were included in very copy of Windows, we live this dream today.

What Did I Learn?
Given that I pretty much only knew how to spell App-V when I started reading the book (well I understood the concept around application virtualization, but you get the idea) I walked away with a much deeper understanding and appreciation of the entire app-v product line. From the stand-alone client to the server to mixing in application virtualization with presentation virtualization (aka Remote Desktop). From deploying the client to deploying very complex suites with it (harder to get more "complex" than Microsoft Office 2010), to the servers.

After reading this book I'd feel comfortable having an App-V conversation with IT, whereas before it was a black and scary box...

Final Thoughts
Who is this book for? I think the perfect person for this book the IT team member, either a cube warrior or management who's interested in Microsoft's App-V. Also this book is really great for those who have access to Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP) and aren't sure about that that App-V thing in it is. Also developers looking to use App-V to simplify their app deployment or those where App-v is being used on their apps.

Sandboxes, application virtualization, etc is likely going to be one of the primary ways applications are deployed and used in the future. Getting in now will make this future wave easer to ride...

Thanks again to Packt for giving me the opportunity to review it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This books enabled my team on a real life datacenter deployment of App-V 3. Februar 2012
Von Alberto Ortega - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I chose this book to be my companion on an Enterprise deployment of App-V. Me and my team were challenged to virtualize 50 LOB application for an international retail customer. I had some background on aplication virtualization but only on small deployments. This was an easy reading of the first chapters to get yourself into the app virtualization world and the backgrounds, when you start moving forward the chapters you will find neat an specific examples of complex operations like serialization which is almost an art that changes from application to application.

I think the author did a great job here putting together lot of resources that you will find and hear about application virtualization mixed with some real life experiences.

Wheter you have an app-v project on the horizon or you are just wondering how could I make money out of application virtualization and add value to my customers this is a very recommended resource.

You can tell by the review I just wrote :)
1.0 von 5 Sternen Not worth the purchase 12. September 2011
Von S. Philp - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Save yourself the time and browse the author's blog (for free) instead. This book is nothing more than an extremely cursory look at App-V packaging.

Nearly half the book is devoted to the installation of the App-V server / client software, something that shouldn't take nearly that much space. The editing is for crap on the Kindle edition, with text repeating itself a couple times in multiple places, additional list markings throughout the text, and the same information being repeated multiple times in subsequent paragraphs.

The extensive packaging tutorials touted in the description consist only of the packaging of Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Office 2010.

As explained, the Firefox deployment took nearly no extra configuration, so it's a nice easy "first exercise". Sadly, the book contains page upon page of the complicated command lines necessary to deploy pieces of Office 2010 with NO EXPLANATION ABOUT WHAT THEY DID. Completely unacceptable.

There is no middle ground or further discussion in the text. Nothing about handling drive mappings that applications might require, nothing about handling file type mappings for virtualized applications, no coverage about how to deal with ongoing maintenance of virtualized applications and how Microsoft Updates should be dealt with. There's no discussion on modifying the "captured" application when the out-of-the-box tools don't get things right.

Skip this book and hope someone writes something better!

The book is a descent starter, however has too many errors and lacks of deep insight where needed.
I do not recommend this book.
