Microsoft Server Application Virtualization – It’s all about the App
At MMS 2011 this week, Brad Anderson, Corporate Vice President, Management and Security Division, talked about how, with private cloud computing, it is all about application. One of the associated product announcements was the release of System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 Beta. One of the features of this beta release is Microsoft Server Application Virtualization. Server Application Virtualization (or Server App-V for short) allows you to separate the application configuration and state from the underlying operating system.
Server App-V packages server applications into “XCopyable” images, which can then be easily and efficiently deployed and started using Virtual Machine Manager without an installation process. This can all be accomplished without requiring changes to the application code, thus mitigating the need for you to rewrite or re-architect the application. This virtualization process separates the application and its associated state from the operating system thereby offering a simplified approach to application deployment and servicing.
