Keeping your workforce productive—and your service desk above water—are some of the biggest challenges in any major OS migration. Version 10 makes your life easier by ensuring your workforce has complete access to their Windows applications before, during and after a migration.
Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization speeds your application deployments by dramatically reducing testing time and eliminating application installations.
Easily adopt virtualized applications into your existing IT environment without installing additional agents, device drivers or any server-side architecture.
Run applications over the web or from a file share five to twenty times faster than other solutions with our predictive streaming technology. And with the new ZENworks Application Virtualization Server components it's now easier than ever to profile and optimize your applications for streaming.
Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization makes it easy to run applications in a safe, isolated environment that's immune to conflicts with other applications.
ZENworks Application Virtualization Server makes it easy to create a web portal where users can access their virtual applications without requiring an agent on the machine. Whether they are working from home on a personal machine or from a borrowed corporate laptop, they will always have access to the applications they need to be productive.
Create a Single, Executable File
Package all your application files, settings, runtimes, and other components into a single compact executable that runs immediately and runs anywhere. And those applications act just as if they were installed locally, even though your OS, registry and run-time environments don't change at all.
Complete Control of Your Virtual Applications
With ZENworks Application Virtualization, you can both configure a virtual application to launch from portable media such as a USB drive and tell the application to automatically register itself with the host system. In addition, you can control the number of days the application will run and set a specific date for its expiration.
Using ZENworks Application Virtualization Server you can easily make time-bombed applications available in a web portal and limit the number of users or devices that have access to the application.
Reduce Windows Vista UAC prompts and eliminate most Vista compatibility errors.
Use a simple tool to register a virtual application with the host and configure file associations and shortcuts.
Quickly add popular runtimes, components and viewers to virtual application executables. This includes support for .NET, Java, Shockwave, Flash and SQL Server 2005 Express.
Deploy virtual applications using MSI setup packages.
Protect the host OS and registry by simulating those subsystems in virtual applications.
Embed virtualized database and Web services into virtual application executables, enable applications to communicate, and gain fine-grained control over virtual resource sharing between multiple applications.
ZENworks Application Virtualization Server makes it easy to connect to your Active Directory or NetIQ® eDirectory™ system and then quickly publish applications to the users and groups in the directory.
Accelerate deployment and reduce bandwidth by compressing virtual application files.
Deploy patches for virtual applications independently of the application itself.
Make all your virtual and physical applications part of the same unified lifecycle management solution.
