"App Volumes is great when paired with Horizon Linked Clones"

What do you like best?

Having the ability to update an app and push it out immediately to Horizon VDI users is valuable. (in most cases without them needing to log off or reboot)

What do you dislike?

Comes bundled with SQL express install that is "not supported" for production environments. What's the point of including it then? It would be great if it was a virtual appliance instead of a Windows install.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We no longer need to update VDI images just to update individual apps. We can keep 1 vanilla image for all users and only provision them for the apps they need.
