Andover, MA (PRWEB) April 27, 2009
A report by The 451 Group has cited AppZero for its ability to virtualize server-based applications so they can be easily moved between physical or virtual servers in the datacenter or to and between cloud computing environments, such as GoGrid or Amazon EC2.
AppZero's Virtual Application Appliances (VAAs) decouple server applications from their operating systems so they can be accessed on any server or moved from one environment to another as quickly as business circumstances require. This mobility and real-time provisioning dramatically simplifies software deployment, operation, and management. It reduces the number of images IT departments have to manage, allowing an application to be deployed on any machine in a matter of seconds and creating clear separation of rolls between system administrators and application owners. Application lifecycle automation also becomes more flexible, and workloads can be provisioned to scale or de-scale to any machine, anywhere. As organizations move to cloud computing, this type of elastic provisioning enables server applications to be moved to the whichever cloud makes business and financial sense, effectively removing cloud service lock-in.
According to the report, AppZero differs from desktop technologies at the operating system and application virtualization level and is designed to provide mobility within a datacenter, between a primary and backup site or across internal resources and those provided by clouds such as Amazon Web services or a GoGrid. AppZero will transform the process by which server applications are provisioned and deployed, just as InstallFree, Microsoft App-V, Symantec SVS, Xenocode and others have done for Windows desktop clients.
AppZero supports Linux, Solaris and Windows 2003 and Server 2008, 32 and 64 bit infrastructures. The full report, issued April 15, 2009, can be accessed by 451 customers at http://www.the451group.com.
AppZero develops software for creating, controlling and maintaining Virtual Application Appliances (VAAs), server-side application appliances that make provisioning of applications as services almost instantaneous: across a network, on any server (physical or virtual), in the datacenter, hosted, or in the cloud.
