End the patch management hell. Application virtualization allows you to run applications without having to install the application on each workstation. This simplifies patch management and significantly reduces the time to roll out new or upgraded applications, because patches are installed once on the application server and not individually on each workstation. We’ll take a look at Microsoft’s App-V technology and how it handles local, remote, and disconnected clients and their applications. Application Virtualization also ties into Disaster Recovery because it significantly reduces the prep time for workstation recovery. Application Virtualization can reduce patch management headaches, reduce the time to roll out new applications, easily roll back problematic patches, allows users to run different versions of the same application, and can speed up Disaster Recovery. See if this technology is a good fit for your company.
