FSLogix Application Masking
FSLogix provides a unified approach to image management, profile access, and application provisioning. I’ve already introduced FSLogix in a previous article about layering, check it out if you want to learn about the details. In a nutshell, what FSLogix Apps does is allowing users to see and launch only the applications they were assigned to, configured to their individual preference and corporate policy. The product is based on a sophisticated filter driver and can be used for cloud desktops, virtual desktops or physical desktops. This allows organizations to increase operational efficiency while reducing infrastructure complexity. FSLogix Apps seamlessly integrates with desktop virtualization solutions from Microsoft, Citrix and VMware.
Over the last weeks, Kris Griffin, Freek Berson and I have designed and installed a reference environment with FSLogix Apps. The primary result of this RDS Gurus project is a Step-by-Step Guide for Building an FSLogix Apps 2.1 Lab Environment. In addition, we produced a video that shows the power and simplicity of application masking on an Azure RDS IaaS environment. Watch the video here.
