App-V Scheduler 2.6 Released

Very excited to announce the latest release of App-V Scheduler, version 2.6!

This release contains a lot of new features and improvements based on customer feedback. App-V Scheduler, started in 2014, has a large install base at customers ranging from small to large Enterprises. App-V Scheduler is a proven application life cycle management solution for Government, Finance and Healthcare organisations. Since the App-V client is embedded in the operating system we have seen a fast growth in the adoption of the App-V Scheduler solution. We also see a very high success rate in the deployment of applications with App-V 5, this is also due to the simplified architecture of the App-V client, basically the client consists of a couple of filter drivers that redirects reads and writes making the application run isolated and portable. It’s easy to adopt and learn how this technology works and because it’s already part of the operating system it’s very easy to enable and use!

App-V Scheduler 2.6 new features:

  • The Central View Console has been redesigned from the ground up and build on the latest industry standards
  • Central View now includes advanced filtering, performance improvements and new features
  • The agent is thinner and faster
