We started with Appstream seven years ago with the vision of providing managed applications on non-managed (personal) computers. Over the years the packaging got easier and the offline streaming got faster. I have always wanted an easy way of seeding our student computers with the books and apps that are available on our server.
It sounded like the next version will finally give us the ability to provided those packages from other storage sources other than our server. We use multiple virtualization products for providing VDI to mobile endpoints but I'm excited to see a convergence between our application virtualization server and the virtual workspace servers. This combination should finally give us a great solution to an education byod environment.
