Seattle, WA (PRWEB) February 2, 2009
Xenocode, the leader in application virtualization technology, today announced the immediate availability of the 2009 edition of Xenocode Virtual Application Studio. The Virtual Application Studio authoring environment allows systems administrators and software developers to easily virtualize existing Windows-based applications for instant deployment using Xenocode.
Xenocode Virtual Application Studio 2009 is available for download at http://www.xenocode.com.
Xenocode is an advanced application virtualization and delivery technology that completely eliminates software installation and insulates applications against conflicts and compatibility errors. The Xenocode system allows applications to be deployed instantly over the Internet, intranets, USB drives, and existing desktop management infrastructure such as Active Directory.
Virtual Application Studio 2009 includes dozens of feature enhancements and engine upgrades, including:
- Active Directory deployment and Windows shell integration: Easily deploy virtual applications to Active Directory user groups. A fully scriptable shell integration tool allows virtual application shortcuts and file associations to be registered on user desktops.
- Enhanced sandbox management: Dynamic management of virtual "bubbles" allows fine-grained control over application linking and communication. Sandbox reset allows changes to application settings to be instantly reverted.
- One-click import of MSI setups, ThinApp configurations, and Novell AXT packages: Existing MSI setup packages and other configuration formats can be virtualized with a single click, eliminating the need for time-consuming recapture.
- Dozens of new application templates: Virtual Application Studio's unique application template wizard allows one-click virtualization of many popular applications, including the latest versions of Microsoft Office, OpenOffice, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer.
"This major update to Virtual Application Studio delivers powerful new application delivery and management capabilities to systems administrators," said Kenji Obata, Code Systems founder and chief executive officer. "Xenocode virtualization provides an easy, affordable method for IT professionals to reduce application support and maintenance costs while improving their users' desktop experience and productivity."
Virtual Application Studio 2009 also incorporates numerous compatibility, reliability, and performance improvements. A detailed description of all updates and patches in the 2009 update is available on the Xenocode web site.
Xenocode Application Virtualization Frees Applications from the Operating System
Xenocode is a powerful virtualization technology that separates applications from the underlying operating system. Unlike traditional hardware virtualization solutions that duplicate an entire host operating system, Xenocode's lightweight application virtualization technology emulates only core operating system features required for application execution. "Xenocoded" applications require no setup, configuration, clients, or device drivers, are insulated from application and component conflicts, and run seamlessly on Windows Vista and locked-down desktops.
Xenocode-virtualized applications can be deployed over the Internet, intranets, USB devices, and existing desktop management infrastructure, including Active Directory, Microsoft SMS, LANDesk Management Suite, and BMC Configuration Management. Xenocode technology has been licensed by Novell and is available as part of Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization.
The Xenocode Virtual Application Studio authoring environment allows software developers and systems administrators to easily convert existing Windows-based applications into virtualized applications ready for instant deployment using Xenocode.
Xenocode Virtual Application Studio 2009 is available immediately via the web and through authorized Xenocode partners. For more information on Xenocode licensing or to download a free evaluation version, please visit http://www.xenocode.com.
