Application Streaming

Jump to: navigation, search

Application streaming refers to an on-demand software delivery system which is based on the fact that applications typically need a minor fraction of the entire program code in order to run. This means that only the important parts of the application’s program code has to be set up; when the end user does certain actions in any application, the relevant code and the files are delivered across a network as and when necessary. Unlike application virtualization where the application runs directly from virtual machines and separate from local systems, in application streaming, the program is run locally and involves centralized storage of the application code. Application streaming is transparent to end users; the server will send enough data to the client for launching the app and then the remaining is streamed to the client in background while he is working.
