Architecture
There are several components of User Virtualization some comprised of a either a two tier or highly scalable,
three-tier architecture:
Tier 1: Client Computer / Desktop
The client computer contains the AppSense User Virtualization Agents. The agents monitor and control any changes that
the user makes to their Windows operating system and managed applications. The agents and configuration can be
deployed by System Center Configuration Manager or AppSense Management Server.
Tier 2: AppSense server services
AppSense provides several backend services which includes AppSense Environment Manager, AppSense Application
Manager and AppSense Performance Manager. Also provided is a Management Server to deploy agents and configuration
policy if the the customer is not using System Center. Environment Manager contains a personalization server role which
acts as a broker between the client
interaction, providing a secure channel to
read and write the personalization data.
Further scale can be achieved through
network load balancing technologies
allowing parallel services or multiple
replicated databases.
Optional Tier 3: SQL Server Database
The Microsoft SQL Server database stores user
personalization settings on a per application
basis. Settings are pushed down when the
Personalization Server requests the latest
settings on behalf of a client computer. Any
changes made on the client computer are
synchronized back in real time to any app type.
Self Service rollback to any point in time can be
achieved

Case Studies
Leading insurance provider selects AppSense for their desktop
virtualization deployment to support offshore developers
Nationwide Children’s Hospital chose AppSense
Increased manageability of the desktop, decreased user logon
times and supporting offshore workers. Migration to Windows 7.
Nationwide had previously implemented Windows
Roaming Profile, but it did not meet user requirements and required more
support than it was able to provide and so was removed.
Improved logon times, seamless migration between
desktops regardless of delivery mechanism or Windows OS platform or
version , Increased end user satisfaction with user personalization
Migration to Windows 7 and App-V. Personalized Windows 7
virtual desktops, Increased security controls, Dramatically reduced logon
time.
Our users are unable to make a distinction between when they are using a virtual or physical
desktop which is tremendously valuable to us... AppSense Environment Manager allows us to
give our users the desktop they are comfortable with while ensuring that IT can maintain control
over the desktop and easily manage it”
“AppSense provided us with a pain free migration to virtual desktops, additionally it futureproofs our design. We selected AppSense because it was a comprehensive product that
featured everything we needed”
