MSIX is Microsoft's modern application packaging format. MSIX abstracts the application from the Operating System by virtualizing the file system and registry entries. Containerizing the package that can be installed or converted into a virtual hard disk that can be mounted on a single session or multi session operating environment. If you're interested in Azure Virtual Desktop multisession capabilities, stay tuned for an upcoming video on Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop App-Attach! Today we will focus on Microsoft's MSIX technology.
Benefits of MSIX
Due to the abstraction layer and virtualization components, this allows for a cleaner installation and uninstallation process. Either Automated through a management solution such as but not limited to Microsoft Intune or traditional manual methods.
Technically speaking it offers extended Win32 app support for older legacy applications, and optimized resource allocation such as Network, Disk, and CPU in more modern operating environments.
Challenges of MSIX
Legacy applications with technical debt. Not every application is suitable for MSIX.
Converting applications to MSIX is only half of the battle, ensuring the app installs and functions as MSIX is equally important to understand ahead of time to ensure the successful adoption of modernized application management and delivery.
