Recommended best practice
100% Stream-faulting for optimal launch performance
Guideline is for sequencing the application
For Pooled VDI and RDSH deployments
Applications are published once
Subsequent logins restore the user state (publishing)
Pre-add select App-V packages
Pre-publish select global App-V packages
Tune to your deployment
Use Shared Content
Store (SCS) Mode
Used in low-latency deployments
Optimal launch performance
Optimal disk space usage

PowerShell Module Load Time
• Load once
• Keep it loaded
Using the API
• Use the .NET PowerShell API
• Calling PowerShell.exe is slower
Certificate Revocation List (CRL)
• Configure your Infrastructure
• Unreachable CRL will slow module load
