AppSense: Best Practice Documentation

indexAppSense has seen remarkable growth and penetration into a lot of virtualization endeavors across many business and government sectors.  Recently, I’ve received requests from readers as to where they can get some AppSense best practice documentation.  My former AppSense sales engineer forwarded several documents to me and I found others on the myappsense.com site under the documentation section.  I’m providing what I have here, but keep it mind it is out of date and refers to older versions of the software.

I encourage you to reach out to your AppSense sales engineer as they provide this kind of documentation to you.  Also visit the following sites for more information:

Thanks,
Alain
