Microsoft is planning to its App-V virtualization client into Windows 10 with the upcoming Redstone release. For those unfamiliar with App-V, it’s a management system for IT pros which allows them to “better administer a catalog of existing Win32 apps including techniques for app-to-app isolation, consistent lifecycle management mechanisms and usage tracking”.

Now, Microsoft is apparently planning to “tightly” integrate App-V with Windows 10 Redstone. Microsoft will be working on integrating Windows 10 Enterprise, and they will continue to use App-V 5.1 Server infrastructure to ensure the integration works perfectly without causing any issues for existing users.

Here’s my Microsoft’s timeline for App-V for the Redstone 1 release:

  • Simplify deployment and servicing
  • Deliver seamless in-place upgrades (from App-V 5.1)
  • Fully backward compatible; won’t break anything

And here’s the company’s plans for Redstone 2 release:

  • Reduce cost of classing Windows application management
  • Tighter integration with other Microsoft products

In case you don’t know, Microsoft is expected to release the Redstone 1 update for Windows 10 sometime around June of this year while the Redstone 2 update is expected to get released in the Fall.
