Worldwide Computer Products News-5 March 2009-Novell introduces Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization 7(C)1995-2009 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

Novell (Nasdaq:NOVL), an IT software, systems and technology company, announced on Wednesday (4 March) the availability of Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization 7, which can now be integrated with Novell ZENworks Configuration Management to help customers and managed service provides reduce the cost of testing, packaging and configuring virtual applications.

According to the company, the latest release enables customers to publish virtual applications to their ZENworks Configuration Management zone without leaving the packaging tool. ZENworks Application Virtualization allows customers to restrict virtual applications from running on devices not registered with their ZENworks Configuration Management zone and convert legacy applications into virtual applications, in this way eliminating compatibility issues.

The solution also enables Windows administrators and managed service providers to quickly package applications into a stand-alone executable that can be distributed and run on any Windows Vista, Windows XP or Windows 2000 workstations without a traditional install. With the latest release, virtual packages are isolated from the installation and configuration process to prevent them from interfering with other applications. In addition, once the application is created, it can now be distributed across Windows desktops using ZENworks management solutions.

The new release allows customers to easily configure file association and icons so that the application feels like other Windows application to the end user, as well as enable optional application compression and distribute patches for virtual applications independent from the application itself, the company said.

Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization is available for a list price of USD39 per user or instance license.
