Today we are delighted to announce a significant Spring update for Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) 5.0 SP2. This update is in coordination with the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP) 2014 release which we also announced today on the Springboard Series Blog.
For those of you who are not familiar with App-V, this product enables anywhere access to virtualized applications on any authorized PC without application installs.

We have also published new guidance on tuning and sizing your virtualized application infrastructure along with detailed descriptions of the App-V client internals.
