Are you looking to keep your IT environment manageable, without losing grip on costs? Do you want to secure the flexibility of your IT infrastructure, without risking interruptions? Introducing application virtualization may be the solution for you!
With application virtualization applications run locally on a desktop without actually installing them locally. In this model applications run locally, make use of local resources and an adapted ‘virtual machine’. This in comparison to a Server Based Computing (SBC) model, where applications run centrally on a server and are only presented on the desktop. Application virtualization combines the advantages of local execution (speed) and at the same time avoiding the conflicting demands of different applications installed and running on the same local desktop.
Because applications are disconnected from each other and from the local operating system, updates and migrations to both applications and operating systems are problem free. In this model applications leave no traces on the desktop so they have no impact on your performance.
