OS machines support:

- Application Delivery groups that host only applications.
Session management and
OS machines run multiple sessions from a single machine to deliver multiple
applications and desktops to multiple, simultaneously connected users. Each
user requires a single session from which they can run all their hosted
example, a user logs on and requests an application. One session on that
machine becomes unavailable to other users. A second user logs on and requests
an application which that machine hosts. A second session on the same machine
is now unavailable. If both users request additional applications, no
additional sessions are required because a user can run multiple application
using the same session. If two more users log on and request desktops, and two
sessions are available on that same machine, that single machine is now using
four sessions to host four different users.
the Delivery group to which a user is assigned, a machine on the least loaded
server is selected. A machine with session availability is randomly assigned to
deliver applications to a user when that user logs on.
