How it works

AppStream 2.0 is a fully managed service which can be configured for application streaming or for delivery of virtual desktops with selective persistence. When AppStream 2.0 is used for virtual desktops, saved files and application settings remain persistent between user sessions, and a fresh desktop is assigned to the user every time they log on.
