We are especially excited about combining our leadership in virtualization technology with Novell's best-of-breed ZENworks management infrastructure platform
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) September 18, 2008
Xenocode, a next-generation virtualization company, today announced the licensing of its best-in-class application virtualization technology to Novell. The recently announced Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization solution leverages Xenocode's virtualization technology to allow customers to deploy their applications inside a "virtual container" requiring no installation or configuration. Virtual application deployment eliminates application conflicts and compatibility problems on Windows desktops, allowing organizations to run legacy applications on Windows Vista and deploy multiple versions of applications side-by-side in isolated "sandboxes."
"We are especially excited about combining our leadership in virtualization technology with Novell's best-of-breed ZENworks management infrastructure platform," said Kenji Obata, Xenocode founder and CEO. "This licensing agreement provides a powerful, integrated solution for large organizations to assure instant availability of applications across all versions and desktop platforms."
Built on Xenocode virtualization technology, ZENworks Application Virtualization includes pre-configured templates for popular business applications, allowing customers to virtualize and deploy applications in as little as five minutes. Application virtualization is 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, application virtualization technology emulates core operating system features required for application execution. Virtualized applications can be easily deployed, managed, or locked down, according to IT management objectives and policies.
"This collaboration with Xenocode will provide powerful virtualization capabilities for our customers," said Richard Whitehead, director of product marketing for Novell Systems and Resource Management. "Application virtualization in concert with our ZENworks systems management solutions give customers the tools they need to lower their total cost of ownership and increase productivity by reducing application conflicts and protecting their standard operating environment."
Additional benefits of "Xenocoded" virtual applications include fast and easy distribution, and security. Organizations can use Novell ZENworks Configuration Management, CD media, USB drives, the Web and other network management software to quickly deploy and manage their applications - simple .exe files that run immediately without requiring additional servers or other hardware, device drivers, or player software. Security can be assured on locked-down systems as virtualized applications run without requiring access to the file system or registry.
