Application Virtualization: The Gift That Keeps Giving?
I recently wrote about how application virtualization helps organizations to save real money through streamlined application distribution. But application virtualization offers even more benefits, including:
- Full usage monitoring and control- Application virtualization can offer an unparalleled ability to view and remotely manage the state of your applications. Whether their execution is limited to specified computers, specific dates or times, or restricted as to number of launches, you can have complete control over every virtualized application in your environment.
- Effective license metering and harvesting- Application virtualization can also provide metering capabilities so that you can ensure that the number of software licenses purchased equals the number of concurrent users. This helps you remain compliant, avoiding costly software audits and fines, while at the same time eliminating overbuying of licenses.
Whether you're considering application virtualization for improved software distribution or for other reasons, the technology holds tremendous promise.
