Throughout the past year and a half I have had some very positive feedback on the application layering cheat sheet, needles to say that I will continue to update the sheet going forward. Currently I am up to version 3.0 already. The main goal is to highlight some of the most important features and capabilities of each product and changes/additions when compared to the previous cheat sheet, version 2.0 in this case, though I will never be able to include all changes, features, and so on of every product. As such, this is by no means meant as an exclusive list.
You’ll find the cheat sheet below, as an .PNG image and as a downloadable .PDF file. If you have any remarks and/or potential additions to the sheet, please do let me know. Also note that Fslogix is not an application layering technology per se, however, they do offer some very innovative and unique solutions making life (a lot) easier. As always, it took some time to find and collect the information displayed in the sheet. For the first time I had to delete some of the older data because I want to try and keep it on a single (A4) page for as long as possible. I also changed the font size from 7.5 to 7 to free up some additional space.

* In-guest Windows refers to mounting a VHD and/or VMDK file directly into the Windows file / operating system. When using Fslogix’s App Containers it will mount all virtual files (disks) directly into the Windows OS exclusively. With Liquidware Labs Flex Apps it will mount the VHD files in-guest as well but it will mount all VMDK files, when using VMware, on the Hypervisor level. In-guest mounting makes it possible to support physical machines as well. App Volumes also uses the VHD file format to mount in-guest for physical * Writeable Volumes can be used to store user profile data, user installed applications only or both. Due note that Writeable Volumes do not work on RDSH deployments.
