Microsoft Application Virtualization 5.0 is here!


Greetings! Last week, Karri announced the general availability of MDOP 2012, which included the release of two much awaited products: the new Microsoft User Experience Virtualization (UE-V), and one of the biggest releases in Microsoft Application Virtualization’s (App-V) history – App-V 5.0. Anthony Smith (A.J.) has already provided an overview of UE-V in his blog, so to build on that foundation, I want to provide a deep dive on the capabilities of App-V 5.0 and the benefits it will provide to our customers. The blog is broken out into three sections: how to use App-V 5.0 for a more flexible virtualization solution, how App-V’s integrated platform offers a more consistent experience, and powerful management.

Provides Flexible Virtualization

Customers who have deployed App-V like it so much that they want to virtualize most of their applications, but they often ran into problems virtualizing applications that demand a high level of integration. Let’s take the example where customers want to embed an editable Visio diagram into a Word document. We usually take this level of integration for granted, but when applications are virtualized, they are isolated and protected from each other, so this level of integration doesn’t work. For most applications, this kind of protection is helpful. It protects from things like the so-called “dll-hell.” For others, it can be a barrier to successful virtualization. App-V 4.6 let customers use Dynamic Suite Composition to let virtual applications share middleware components like Java, but full co-operation between applications wasn’t supported.
