The App-V 5 Research Series: Papers on the Deployment Performance of Various Application Contents using App-V 5 SP2 with HotFix 4
Today I published the first research paper of a new series on App-V Performance at TMurgent. Each of these 8 papers in this series will examine how a certain type of application content affects deployment performance when delivered with App-V. In each case, I use a custom package filled with just one type of application content and test to see where it impacts performance. Shared Content Store Mode is compared to local caching, and all combinations therein. Each paper is 15 to 30 pages, making them a great light summer reading program for virtualization pros!
These papers, which will release roughly weekly, will culminate with a presentation of the work at the BriForum Conference in Boston on July 21-23 that shows the relative effect of these different content types and what you should do about them when sequencing your packages. Follow me @TimothyMangan to catch tweets as each paper is published.
