About Microsoft Server App-V

Microsoft Server Application Virtualization (Server App-V) builds on the technology used in client Application Virtualization, allowing for the separation of application configuration and state from the underlying operating system in a data center environment. Server App-V converts traditional server applications into “XCopyable” images without requiring code changes to the applications themselves.
The conversion process is accomplished using the Server App-V Sequencer. When the server application is sequenced, the configuration settings, services and resources that the application uses are detected and stored. The sequenced application can then be coupled with an OS image and a configuration. The application images and associated configuration can then be deployed to a server or servers with System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 and managed on top of the Server App-V Agent.
