To Install or Not Install: Solving the Application Management Nightmare
The following DABCC white paper is a comparison of electronic distribution, server-based computing, application isolation and on-demand virtual application computing.
With the emergence of numerous virtualization technologies like VMware® and Softricity® SoftGrid®, and the release of Citrix® Presentation Server 4.0 and Project Tarpon, the age old challenges around operating system and software installations are being brought to the forefront. Solutions like VMware and Microsoft® Virtual Server have the ability to separate your operating systems from your hardware, solving numerous issues around operating system rollouts and management. Now that we have a solution for overcoming these challenges, the critical questions become:
- Is there a better way to install and run applications within operating system?
- Can we solve application conflicts, application installations, and application management issues in the way VMware and Microsoft Virtual Server have addressed similar problems with operating systems and hardware?
