Editor's Note: It was a busy day in Orlando for the SVS team! Product Manager Scott Jones gave this introductory presentation twice, first at ManageFusion 07 and then across town at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo.

Tho it's been around in one form or another for a few years now, application virtualization and streaming is still a new concept for most IT professionals. This presentation is designed for those who want to understand what application virtualization and streaming is all about -- how it works at a high level, what it can do, and how it can help your IT organization be more efficient.

This presentation covers the following topics:

  • Overview of the virtualization landscape and where SVS fits
  • Cost of desktop application management
  • How SVS reduces the cost of desktop application management
  • How it works
  • Adding even greater value with application streaming
  • Use cases for application virtualization and streaming
  • SVS: "clearly" different from the competition
  • Wise Package Studio
  • Pricing and availability
  • Next release

We shared with the audiences that the next release of SVS (version 2.5, project name "Medusa") will include support for using SVS on Citrix Presentation Server. This has been the #1 SVS enhancement request this year.

Of course, paging through a PPT file isn't as valuable as being live for the discussion. Gartner recorded the session at ITxpo and we are working to get that audio to post here. I'll update this article if/when that becomes available.

Editor's Note (10/10/07): We thought you might enjoy this. An anonymous audience member at ManageFusion yesterday drew the following picture of "Mr. SVS" in action. Click for full size image. As Scott might say, "excelsior!"

This session will also be offered at ManageFusion Europe in Malta, Oct 23-25!
