Organizations are adopting Application Virtualization with App-V 5.0 for the positive impact or for lifecycle management. The end result from a user and administrator perspective is that the performance of App-V applications should be the same, if not better. This assumption of performance being similar to traditional applications and better than previous versions of App-V requires a closer look. Some important questions must be answered: Is the performance better? What if the performance is significantly lower? Can your environment handle the user load? To answer these questions about App-V 5.0, we put it to the test! This session shares the unique results of extensive testing, across various scenarios, and provide a comparison of App-V 5.0, previous versions of App-V, traditionally installed applications. We’re not talking about ‘perceived’ performance here, but factual and reproducible data, figures and graphs that will help you identify the performance impact of a migration to this technology or this version. Moreover, we show you effective and ineffective tuning and optimization tweaks that will improve the performance of your environment immediately!
