Announcing the upcoming beta of Symantec Workspace Virtualization (SWV) for 64-bit hardware.  SWV provides the ability to virtualize and isolate applications for the purposes of resolving application conflicts, migration, and optimizing endpoints for increased productivity.  We are taking advanced registrations for the beta cycle at http://beta.altiris.com.

As part of the Symantec Endpoint Virtualization Suite, SWV reduces testing requirements, and support calls and provides instant reset for broken applications.

FEATURES IN THIS RELEASE:

This release introduces support for 64-bit hardware as well as other features, including:

-          SWV runs on Windows Vista 64-bit, Windows Server 2008 64-bit, and Windows 7 64-bit

-          SWV captures and runs 64-bit applications

-          SWV captures and runs 32-bit application on the 64-bit driver

-          SWV supports applications from the Wise Virtual Composer – a single tool to package both streaming and virtual packages

-          Improved performance for streamed applications, boot time, and activation

-          SWV no longer supports Windows 2000

TIMELINE:  Symantec anticipates beta availability in the Q1 2010 timeframe.  Register now and be notified when the beta is available for testing.

Thanks for your interest in our products.  We look forward to working with you to improved the product. 

Best Regards,

SWV is on our critical path for deployment of a 64-bit-only Windows 7 image, which we are planning to start in December. Glad to hear that it's finally on its way.

Is it possible to get into the beta testing as a private user?

PS: Will the new version be also free for personal use?

As we in our company are planning to use virtualization of applications for Windows XP and Windows 7 I would like to try it out.  For now we are using Citrix application profiler for streaming application but I would like to try out some alternatives before deciding. And a good way is to try it out in private and get some experience and the feel of it.
