VMWare ThinApp v220.127.116.117958 Portable | 11.43 Mb
VMWare ThinApp - a package that is a competitor of Microsoft and Citrix, designed for virtualization applications. Simply put, with the help of this tool you can from the usual applications to easily make a portable (portable) version. The approach allows the «package» application in a container that contains all the information you need to work on any computer without the need to install the desired application. Thus, importantly, virtualized software in no way affects and does not alter the current state of the operating system. The very same idea is to prevent software conflicts that can disrupt the system and installed it on. The usefulness is obvious: developers, for example, may carry out tests of new products without risk to violate the stability of the system environment. The approach will reduce the cost of deploying applications on the computers of end users. ThinApp allows you to run multiple versions of the same program. Thus, the simultaneous use of Internet Explorer 6 and 7 should be useful in the process of testing sites.
In most cases ThinApp effectively implements its key task of virtualization through the mechanism of packaging applications and distribution systems, resulting in an application virtualization becoming available to end users on a network or using flash cards. This program is very good distributes applications, so no longer need to conduct extensive regression tests to check conflicts with other applications (or previous versions of this product). Along with competing products (for example, the beta Microsoft Application Virtualization 4.5 and Altiris Software Virtualization Solution) Program VMware ThinApp significantly different from the traditional tools for packaging applications because it can download an application package in a special section created in the system end user, so that the application will be done without crossing with other software that may already be installed.
Previously, there was a significant flaw: virtualized applications have been denied the opportunity to share data among themselves, since each of them performed in a single «sandbox». If the user while working with virtualized Microsoft Word tries to open Internet-link, a text editor can not turn to the browser. In ThinApp 4 has a new function is Application Link, which in the process of preparing the container, you can create the necessary links between virtualized applications. In the future, perhaps association of ThinApp with Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, the proposed use is located on a remote server system and application environment. Analysts suggest that by 2010 virtualization applications will be due the introduction of a large business - an approach will be adopted by 50% of the companies.
