The primary focus in this phase is rolling out App-V infrastructure to the production environment and distributing applications. Also, monitor App-V services as the rollout progresses. The high-level steps for deploying application virtualization as part of a desktop-deployment project are shown below.
To deploy application virtualization
1. Install App-V servers at each site.
Install the planned App-V servers at each site. At central locations, for example, consider installing full App-V Management Servers. At branch offices, consider installing App-V Streaming Servers.
2. Distribute applications to each site.
Implement the planned application distribution strategy.
3. Monitor key App-V services during deployment.
During deployment, monitor App-V to catch problems early. A Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 Management Pack is available for App-V version 4.5.
