On your EazyApp system, we have already configured 4 virtual machines for your business's private virtual environment. The virtual environment consists of the following virtual machines. The 2 virtual machines you connect to and manage are the File Server and the Application Host(s)


  • Domain Controller
    • The domain controller is pre-configured and managed by Applianz technicians. Within this, we push our group policy updates and changes. We are happy to make and update GPO's at your request! 
  • File Server
    • The File Server is where your business application's server components should be installed and configured.  If your application has server-specific software, it should be installed in this session. Application data and server software should be put on the N: Drive, labeled AppData, unless otherwise directed. The AppData is shared out to the Application Host(s) via an SMB shared of \\FileServer\AppData.
    • Examples of software to be installed on this virtual machine include:
      • Quickbooks Database Server Manager
      • SQL Server
      • Sage Server Software
  • Application Host(s)
    • The Application Host(s) is the virtual machine where any software your end-users may use should be installed. The software configured on this virtual machine is published out via RemoteApp to allow delivery to your end-users workstations. 
    • Examples of software to be installed on this virtual machine include:
      • Quickbooks Desktop
      • Microsoft Office 365 
        • Note: 365 E3 is required to run in a Remote Desktop environment
      • Sage Client Software
      • Point of Sale software
    • If you are a larger user base we have provided you with multiple application hosts. Ensure that both are configured with the same software and settings as users are balanced between the two. 
  • Gateway (aka Connect)
    • The Gateway (also referred to as Connect) virtual machine is managed by Applianz technicians. It provides security and connection services for the platform.
