Microsoft App-V 5 packages can be stored on a Windows share or on a web server. Using a Distributed File System (DFS) namespace to host App-V packages allows you to scale out your infrastructure or move the packages between servers at a later date, if required, without the burden of updating the paths to the App-V database.

App-V for hosting the App-V packages.
This recipe assumes that you have provisioned and domain-joined two file servers with the names
