Overview

FlexApp layering is a proven application delivery solution for any Windows desktop that has exclusive benefits for published applications and virtual desktop environments. FlexApp dramatically reduces time and effort to complete base image management by as much as 90 percent.
FlexApp enables virtually any application to be quickly packaged and auto-provisioned to a virtual hard disk container (VHD or VMDK). FlexApp applications can then be easily assigned to any Microsoft AD user, group, or organizational unit, or managed through hundreds of context-aware options.
