Microsoft recently released their new User Experience Virtualization (UEV) technology that allows user preferences, application settings, offline files, and generally anything that makes a virtual desktop or session personal to the end user. This technology goes beyond simple user profiles and uses streaming technology (like App-V does) to keep the user experience consistent between sessions and desktops.
Some of the new features include:
- Ability to control UE-V on a per-user basis using Security Groups and a new Group Policy.
- Performance improvements by allowing for settings packages to be processed concurrently
- Ability to control synchronization using Windows PowerShell
- Support for Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 RTM
