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.
