App-V Cache locations RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know that the client opens the files locally in it's cache but can this be changed such that the files are opened from another location, possibly at the data center instead of caching them locally?  If not, does MS plan to make this an option in future releases?

  • Read-Only Cache in App-V 4.6 is good for desktops that are in the data center, close to where the cache is stored.

    App-V 5 removes the single cache that App-V 4.6 and instead allows for caching of single applications or no cache at all. No cache will of course mean that you will need to take the network into account at application launch time.

  • How does opening of files come into play here?  Will the files being opened through a published have to be downloaded to the local client opening the file or does the App-V server open these files and simply stream it to the end client?

  • If the packages are not cached on the machine, instead opened across the network at every launch, there is potential for latency to be introduced by the network. No cache is fine for RDS hosts and Windows 7 VMs in the data centre right next the storage, but not a great solution for desktops that must cross the network to get to that storage.
