Xenocode Introduces New Application Virtualization Technology

I spoke to Kenji, the CEO some days back and we will publish his interview soon!


SEATTLE, WA May 20, 2008 — Xenocode, a next-generation virtualization company, today launched its flagship offering, Xenocode Virtual Application Studio. Xenocode is a next-generation application virtualization technology that allows Windows, .NET, and Java-based desktop applications to be deployed in standalone executables that run instantly and reliably, anywhere. Xenocode virtualization technology frees organizations from lengthy application setup and configuration, eliminates software conflicts and incompatibilities, and enables instant deployment via portable USB devices, intranets, the Internet, or existing desktop management infrastructure.

"Application virtualization is the next wave of virtualization technology, with compelling performance, flexibility and economic advantages over traditional hardware virtualization," Kenji Obata, Xenocode founder and chief executive officer. "With Xenocode's application virtualization technology, organizations can largely eliminate the enormous costs, risks and limitations associated with traditional desktop application deployment and enable a new level of application portability."

Xenocode Application Virtualization: Frees Applications from the Underlying OS

Xenocode specializes in application virtualization, a sophisticated technology that separates applications from the underlying operating systems on which they execute. Unlike traditional hardware virtualization solutions that require an entire copy of the host operating system, Xenocode's lightweight application virtualization technology emulates core operating system features required for application execution. As a result, applications deployed with Xenocode have essentially the same performance characteristics as native executables. “Xenocoded” applications require no setup, configuration, clients, or device drivers, are isolated from external DLL and dependency conflicts, and run properly on Windows Vista and locked-down desktops. Xenocode-virtualized applications can be easily deployed on USB devices, corporate intranets, the Internet, or existing desktop management infrastructure software such as Microsoft SMS, LANDesk, BMC, and ZENWorks. For example, using Xenocode, users can:

  • Run legacy applications without errors or UAC prompts on Windows Vista and locked-down desktops.
  • Use otherwise incompatible applications side-by-side, or multiple versions of a given application, such as Microsoft Office 2003 and 2007, simultaneously.
  • Carry applications on portable USB keys, available for instant execution on laptops or kiosks along with all user data and settings.

Xenocode Virtual Application Studio is an authoring environment that allows IT professionals to easily convert their existing Windows, .NET, and Java-based applications into virtualized applications ready for instant deployment. Xenocode-enabled applications are run on the Xenocode Virtual Operating System, a lightweight micro-kernel embedded within each virtualized application executable, allowing virtual applications to be executed without any separate client install, device drivers, or player software.

Xenocode Virtual Application Studio is available today. For more information or to download a free evaluation, please visit www.xenocode.com.

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…

Redhot Future Of IT Part 2 :Virtualized Workplaces

Click on the title to hear what I have to say, alternatively click here to listen to what I have to say here.

So what is a virtualized workplace? Does it mean it does not exist? That it's virtual? Well in a certain way YES. This is where the future of our workplace is going to be. Well it is already a reality in some countries.

OK lets start by asking ourselves these questions:
Do you really bond with your colleagues? (think Team cohesiveness)
Do you spend great amount of hours talking about great things that you will do together? (think collaboration)
Do you really feel that you give 100% at work? (think effectiveness)
What do you really miss at your desk? (think personalization)
Is your desk comfortable enough? (Again think optimizing personalization, OK you have done your best to make it your place)Does it really matter to your employer that you are there for him/her? (think commitment)
Or do you get micromanaged over petty issues? (think mismanagement)
Do you see your employees perfor…

A Collection of Threnodies : Part 1

Whale Fall
-----------------

Dress me up in my new threads
clasp my greasy palms
grease my hair
I'm ready for the fall


Watch at all the decadence
watching the avalanche
I'm slipping down
losing my buoyancy


What's become of us
where have we come
this far, this close
close to the doors


I hear them, sublimal chants
I'm on the run
I race through the human sea
I am the king!


I'm the slave
to my own undoings
I'm the jester in my courtyard
We jest as we run


We're strolling on that thin rope
we grope as we rope
we're true heros
we're the survivors


we're the scavengers
we're the friends
we're the lovers
we're the unbred


Soon awaiting the fall
we're lurking on us
we're osedaxing us
we're soon going to be done
we'll soon be arrested
