Novell today announced the availability of PlateSpin Orchestrate 2.0, as well as ZENworks Application Virtualization 7.
For customers that require basic management of virtual machines or robust automation throughout the data center, PlateSpin Orchestrate 2.0 manages virtual machines and physical resources for all the industry’s leading hypervisors – including Windows Hyper-V, VMWare ESX and Xen integrated in SUSE Linux Enterprise Server – from a single interface, eliminating the need for data center administrators to master multiple tools. PlateSpin Orchestrate is part of Novell’s portfolio of workload management solutions that enables customers to build an agile and interoperable next-generation data center using their existing IT investments.
PlateSpin Orchestrate 2.0 is available now.
ZENworks Application Virtualization eliminates application compatibility problems with Windows desktops for greater security and management. This easy-to-use solution simplifies management and ensures secure, successful application deployment and operating system upgrades.
With this latest release, customers can quickly publish virtual applications to their ZENworks Configuration Management zone without ever leaving the packaging tool. ZENworks Application Virtualization allows customers to restrict virtual applications from running on devices not registered with their ZENworks Configuration Management zone and convert legacy applications into virtual applications – eliminating compatibility issues.
ZENworks Application Virtualization allows Windows administrators and managed service providers to quickly package applications into a secure, standalone executable that can be distributed and run on any Windows Vista, Windows XP or Windows 2000 workstations without a traditional install. With this latest release, virtual packages are isolated from the installation and configuration process in order to prevent them from interfering with other applications. Additionally, once the application is created it can now be distributed across Windows desktops using ZENworks management solutions.
Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization is available for a list price of $39 per user or instance license.
