Here's an excerpt:
Whether you want to eliminate application conflicts, deliver applications faster, reduce helpdesk calls, make your desktops more secure and manageable, control application deployment costs, or ensure user productivity, there are a lot of compelling reasons to take advantage of Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization. But if that wasn’t enough, this month’s release of ZENworks Application Virtualization 8 adds powerful new features to the equation.
Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization lets you quickly and easily convert Windows-compatible applications into self-contained virtual applications that can run in their own isolated environments (sandboxes) to eliminate software conflicts, OS dependencies and manual installation processes. Version 8 of the product builds on these capabilities with a new streaming feature and greater 64-bit support, so you can better leverage your infrastructure investments, more efficiently deliver virtualized applications to users and take advantage of the latest hardware improvements on the desktop.
With Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization 8, you can virtualize 64-bit applications, just as you could their 32-bit counterparts.
When Microsoft delivered 64-bit Windows for the desktop, it opened the door for the creation of higher-performing applications that can better meet the needs of power-hungry users. Now that more and more vendors have had the time to rewrite their applications to take advantage of 64-bit capabilities, the market is seeing a steady increase in the number of 64-bit applications available. With ZENworks Application Virtualization 8, you can virtualize 64-bit applications, just as you could their 32-bit counterparts.
