Architecture Settings Management There are several components of User Virtualization some comprised of a either a two tier or highly scalable, three-tier architecture: Tier 1: Client Computer / Desktop The client computer contains the AppSense User Virtualization Agents. The agents monitor and control any changes that the user makes to their Windows operating system and managed applications. The agents and configuration can be deployed by System Center Configuration Manager or AppSense Management Server. Tier 2: AppSense server services AppSense provides several backend services which includes AppSense Environment Manager, AppSense Application Manager and AppSense Performance Manager. Also provided is a Management Server to deploy agents and configuration policy if the the customer is not using System Center. Environment Manager contains a personalization server role which Optional Tier 3: SQL Server Database The Microsoft SQL Server database stores user personalization settings on a per application basis. Settings are pushed down when the Personalization Server requests the latest settings on behalf of a client computer. Any changes made on the client computer are synchronized back in real time to any app type. Self Service rollback to any point in time can be achieved acts as a broker between the client interaction, providing a secure channel to read and write the personalization data. Further scale can be achieved through network load balancing technologies allowing parallel services or multiple replicated databases.
