AppZero 4.6 to support Windows, Linux platforms

By : |November 17, 2010 0

SAN JOSE, USA: Application virtualization innovator AppZero has recently announced the release of AppZero 4.6, which widens its support of both Windows and Linux platforms.

Decoupling both server-side and client-side applications from the operating system (OS), AppZero makes provisioning of Windows and Linux applications as services almost instantaneous: across a network, on any server (physical or virtual), in the datacenter, hosted, or in the cloud, said a press release.

AppZero encapsulates an application into a Virtual Application Appliance (VAA) complete with everything it needs to run except for an executing OS. Because the VAA uses the OS on the target machine, the application executes upon delivery, without installation.

“Customers and partners virtualize applications for reasons that go beyond the straight cost-savings of server virtualization. They want to decrease complexity and gain application portability across cloud and datacenter environments,” said AppZero CEO Greg O’Connor.

“We’re delivering what customers are telling us they want. In this case, that is simplified Windows application management and a solid Linux offering. Our 4.6 release puts us dead center in the critical mass of IT servers,” added Greg O’Connor.

“This release makes the flexibility that zero-install delivery and application execution brings to their operations and deployment schedules available to a much broadened set of applications,” concluded AppZero CTO Bill Cullen.
