AdminStudio Benchmark: Accelerating App-V Package Creation 8 Times the Speed of Traditional Methods
Flexera Software™ and Microsoft® have teamed up to make application virtualization as useful and approachable as possible. Flexera Software has expanded AdminStudio®, the leading product for the authoring and repackaging of MSI files, to now also create SFTs and the entire directory structure of files utilized by Microsoft Application Virtualization™ (App-V) technology. This not only provides a familiar interface for adopting a new format, but also allows Flexera Software to utilize its competency around installation package structures to enhance the speed and simplicity of the process.
The goal of the benchmark was to simulate a typical enterprise environment. The analysis is a look at potential time savings from using AdminStudio to create Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) packages in place of traditional methods. The benchmark compares the time using the traditional native Sequencer (supplied by Microsoft) to prepare applications for App-V against the time spent preparing applications using AdminStudio.
