2012 Has started and where many people believe the end of the world is near, I believe a new era will start. Cloud has been introduced and is moving very fast. It is shifting the world of computing and companies are looking at saving costs with this new technology.

But 2012 is also the year that other things will change. The long awaited new release of Workspace Virtualization is planned for this year, and other news from Symantec is going on. Vision 2012 in Las Vegas in May is something not to miss, and I truly hope to get the chance to be there and talk to peers about Cloud and why we are so happy using Symantec Workspace Virtualization in our Cloud/VDI offering.

So bookmark your agenda for Vision 2012 in the MGM from 7 to 10 May. it might be the last chance to visit Vision if the world really gets to it's end as the Aztecs predict.

For European visitors, Vision will be held in Barcelona from 9 to 11 October but at the same time VMworld is also and...

The new version can be downloaded from our website or you can send me a message and I will ensure you get a version.

Just like SWV, DinamiQs SMART is free for home and personal use. In the world of VDI DinamiQs has set new standards for speed, efficiency and end-user experience. Part of the DinamiQs VDI stack is S.M.A.R.T., which has developed into a full fledged Desktop and Software management application.

The S.M.A.R.T. software helps end-users access those applications that they are entitled to. S.M.A.R.T. allows self-service and self-repair of these –packaged applications....

Vbscripts are not currently natively supported as Wise Composer event scripts but composer created packages are capable of running a script via the wscript/csript engine.  The following how-to article documents how to set up your event scripts and your vbscript to work correctly without the need to 'wrap' it within a batch file:

You wonder, where is the new version of SVS Multitool?

Well, it is called SWV MultiTool now.

Are you willing to beta test? Will you be an active beta tester? Then send me a message and we'll send you the latest beta.

Parkdale, free and portable utility to quickly perform a speed test on disks, cdroms and network shares. Helpful to investigate how and where are bottlenecks in local and network connections.

The program has two different modes:

BlockAccess - The test data is read from/written onto the disk directly without using the filesystem.
FileAccess - The test data is read from/written into a normal file using the filesystem.

What once started as a website for Virtualization nerds has become the huge Symantec community of today.

I can still remember the day's that Altiris Juice started. What a cool idea to reward contributors and give space for those nerds.

And wow.

Looking at my stats I just saw that within three weeks i will be celebrating my 5 year membership:

Member for: 4 years 49 weeks
 

If I think about this, there is no other webiste that I visit and contribute to as long as what i still call juice.

And that is what it is for me

for almost 5 year Symantec connect gives me juice in my work.

Keep up the good work.

WOW! DVS SMART has almost reached 10.000 downloads. It's amazing and it tells us that there is a demand to have something between SVSadmin and SWS.

A lot of the users who downloaded the software have asked us for improvements and enhancements and we listened to this.

In a few weeks, yes I will let you know, a new version of SMART will be released that makes managing SWV layers even much easier.

A full list of all functionality and improvements will be posted soon.

So for everybody that is not aware of SMART:

Smart stands for Simplified Management Application repository Tool and you install it on every desktop, laptop or VDI image that you use to run SWV virtualised applications.

Traditionally Symantec has two tools available for you
