Xenocode eliminates need for Silverlight installs and administrative privileges; launches online Silverlight Sandbox

We are excited to bring comprehensive support for Silverlight technologies to our developer and application delivery products

Xenocode, a leader in application virtualization and delivery technology, today announced support for Microsoft's Silverlight platform and availability of the online Xenocode Silverlight Sandbox. Xenocode allows developers to distribute Silverlight-based applications without the need for installation of the Silverlight runtime or administrative privileges. The Xenocode Silverlight Sandbox lets users run popular Silverlight applications, including the Microsoft Silverlight Gallery and WorldWide Telescope, directly from the web without installation.

The Xenocode Silverlight Sandbox is available at http://www.xenocode.com/silverlight.

According to news reports, Major League Baseball recently abandoned Silverlight in part due to the need for users to have administrative rights to install the Silverlight player. Work computing environments are typically "locked down", preventing installation of Silverlight and causing widespread frustration among MLB.com subscribers. Xenocode's unique virtualization technology eliminates the need for administrative rights and software installations.

"We are excited to bring comprehensive support for Silverlight technologies to our developer and application delivery products", said Kenji Obata, Code Systems founder and chief executive officer. "Xenocode gives Silverlight developers the ability to deliver applications powered by this next-generation technology to the widest possible audience."

Xenocode supports both Silverlight 2 and the current beta version of Silverlight 3.

The online Xenocode Silverlight Sandbox is available immediately, free of charge at http://www.xenocode.com/silverlight.

Applications featured in the Silverlight Sandbox were built using Xenocode Virtual Application Studio and deployed using Xenocode Web Delivery. Xenocode products are available via the web and through authorized Xenocode partners.

Xenocode Brings the World's Software to the Web
Xenocode is a powerful application virtualization and streaming technology that allows software to run instantly from the web, without installation or hassles. Xenocode takes only minutes to deploy and works with existing applications, web sites, server infrastructure, and CDN providers.

Unlike traditional hardware virtualization and remote presentation technologies, applications deployed with Xenocode have virtually the same performance as native applications. Virtualized applications reside in isolated "sandboxes", allowing software to run side-by-side without conflicts or modifications to the host device. Xenocode requires no setup, configuration, clients, or device drivers and runs legacy software seamlessly on Windows Vista and locked-down desktops.

Xenocode also supports delivery of applications to enterprise desktops via Active Directory, LANDesk Management Suite, and BMC Configuration Management. Xenocode technology has been licensed by Novell and is available as part of Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization.
