Application Virtualization has management potential?



The big news was the addition of application streaming to create a new version, SVS Professional, using AppStream's technology. Where SVS had installed layers locally on desktop machines before, now they can be streamed down on demand, with a high degree of control over what happens to them. On office desktops, for example, a set of applications may be represented as icons, and a layer acquired on demand may represent only a temporary instance of the app, and when it's closed it goes back into a managed pool on the server. If the user's computer is a laptop, on the other hand, the user probably wants the layer installed permanently so it can be used offline. There's lots of room for creative customization of services here.


Honestly I am banking on thin light weight Virtual Appliance Desktop Infrastructure. Think of it this way. You have an ESX Desktop version on a quad-core PC. You have some very totally different needs. We segregate the needs and provide you with several versions of appliances. You log in to the PC and can run those appliances at your own will. I am not saying that Application virtualization isn't that good. All I'm saying is that we need to isolate the VM so that it is "totally secure".
