Kyndryl Inc.

Work with Kyndryl to assess, modernize, and manage your mission critical applications and simplify your application lifecycle with VMware Horizon on Azure

Kyndryl’s VMware Horizon on Azure services are designed to simplify a client’s application management, using app layering technology. With more than 25 years’ experience, customers have trusted Kyndryl experts to provide guidance on application lifecycle and deliver world class application migrations, that will accelerate the process of deploying applications.

Kyndryl’s Approach:

Kyndryl is a leader in application lifecycle services with the many years’ experience managing applications whether they run in the cloud, on-prem, or hybrid of both. We use our many years of experience with well-defined workflows with automation to improve agility and simplify common tasks. For efficient application lifecycle in a desktop virtualization environment, Kyndryl uses industry leading tools to perform all the application lifecycle activities shown above paying additional attention to the following items:

  • Test compatibility for Windows 10/11 compatibility: We will test the installation and start-up of an application to ensure that it runs as expected in a virtual desktop environment.
  • Verify multi-user compatibility (for Azure Virtual Desktop): We test to see if the apps are compatible with a multi-user environment where all users are on the same virtual machine.
  • Assess app layering compatibility: We use VMware’s app layering technology ‘App Volumes’ to simplify application lifecycle and we ensure that the application runs as expected in an app layering deployment.
  • Performance profiling: We check resource consumption of the applications to get an idea of the resource needs for the virtual machine.
  • Package applications: In many cases the application can be set to be automatically packaged.
  • Check for correct operation: Our automated verification process ensures application work as expected in their new environment.
