Looks like Microsoft Softgrid/Application Virtualization is gonna get some more competition… VMware have a huge customerbase.
VMware is excited to announce the acquisition of Thinstall, a complementary virtualization solution provider. By using Thinstall’s unique, agentless application virtualization technology, desktop administrators can realize immediate benefits. Thinstall enables the rapid delivery of complex software applications cost effectively and with increased security. Thinstall products require no pre-installed software on physical clients, no new deployment infrastructure or systems management tools, and make it easy for IT staff to quickly, safely and securely deploy virtualized applications.
