SCCM 2007 with App-V infrastructure requirements

A System Center Configuration Manager + Application Virtualization infrastructure is comprised of the following components:

– Microsoft Application Virtualization Sequencer:
The Application Virtualization Sequencer ‘program’ is used to package virtual applications for deployment with Configuration Manager.

– Configuration Manager Site Server:
A part of the Configuration Manager Site hierarchy, the Configuration Manager Site Server manages virtual application distribution through
Configuration Manager Distribution Points to target systems, either as a streaming service, or as a locally delivered package.

– Configuration Manager Distribution Point (Distribution Point):
Configuration Manager Distribution Point site roles provide management services such as hardware and software inventory, operating system deployment, and software updates, as well as software distribution of both physical and virtual applications, to Configuration Manager target systems (often referred to as ‘clients’).

– Configuration Manager / Application Virtualization Clients:
Client devices include desktop/laptop PCs, terminal servers and Windows Vista Enterprise Centralized Desktop (VECD) clients.  Configuration Manager Clients that receive delivery of virtual applications from a Configuration Manager infrastructure require both the Configuration Manager Advanced Client and Application Virtualization Client software to be installed and configured.  The Configuration Manager and Application Virtualization Client software work together to deliver, interpret and launch virtual application packages.  The Configuration Manager Client manages the delivery of virtual application packages to the Application Virtualization Client. The Application Virtualization Client executes the virtual application on the client PC.
