Feb 1st a new version of VME (Virtual Memory Extender) will be released.
The new version is available in 4, 8, 16, 32 and 64 GB.
With VME you can run your desktops, servers and Virtual machines with up to 64 GB of virtual memory without adding fysical memory modules.
This is very helpfull if your desktop or server does not support more memory modules or your operating system does not support more then 3 GB of memory.

Experience the power of your desktop, laptop or server running up to 64 GB of memory besides the fysical memory added.

If your server has 32 GB of memory, the VME installed in your virtual servers allows you to use more memory then your fysical host contains allowing to run double the density of vm's per host.

VME contains a subset of routines to make your desktops faster running Symantec Virtualised Applications. The specific VSA controls make your virtualised applications run up to twice as fast as usual.

Maybe you are determined to buy some virtualization technologies, but are having trouble figuring out where to start - or where to end. The first question to ask is 'Why am I doing this?' What do I hope to accomplish by virtualizing? Am I sacrificing anything that is important to my business in the process? Then you can determine the best way to accomplish that, realizing that the solution may come from the world of virtualization, or not. I will again stress the importance of reviewing each type of virtualization independently of the others, as they solve very different problems and have unique cost models and value equations.

Let's start with a quick (grossly over-simplified but useful) summary of value for the three levels of virtualization previously discussed.

  • Server Virtualization: Reduce hardware cost and increase flexibility in the datacenter.
  • Desktop...

Many IT people today think they have a pretty good idea about what virtualization is, and even know some of the companies that sell it.  But perhaps the people that are confused have a better grasp on the situation, because they know that they don’t quite understand it all.  And that can potentially prevent leaping in a direction that does not provide the results you thought it would.  To make it more challenging, many vendors are bringing completely different architectural models to market, so it’s hard to stack rank “feeds and speeds” since in many instances you are evaluating fundamentally different approaches to solving problems.  And these approaches have enormous short and long term implications to all of your infrastructure, some that are yet to be fully vetted.  Let me see if I can help reduce the confusion by explaining a few things about the various virtualization technologies.

Let’s start with the one that I...

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that phrase, I’d have a lot of nickels.  The point is that still an awful lot of people who are researching virtualization technology (because that’s what you do these days if you’re in IT) start with Citrix and VMware, perhaps go to Microsoft, then stop.  Certainly there are a ton of smaller companies being ignored that also have virtualization technologies.  But Symantec is a big company with virtualization technologies, and more people are learning about Symantec’s solutions every day.

Because Symantec holds such strong positions in security and storage, we are not normally the first company that comes to mind when thinking about virtualization.  However, there are some really good reasons that more and more companies, after looking at ALL of the options, are excited to select Symantec solutions.  In fact, the above phrase is usually followed by “This is great stuff!...

The new version is 6.1 SP6 MP1, and applies to both Workspace Streaming and Workspace Virtualization.  As usual there is a list of fixes, but there are also some new features that are pretty noteworthy.

On the top of the list is 64-bit support.  Yay!  A lot of people have been waiting for this.  So now, 64-bit clients are supported on all Windows 7 varieties, plus Windows Vista SP2, Windows Server 2008 and Server 2008 SP2.  64-bit is also supported on the server operating systems as well.

Next up are a couple of items I’ve been looking forward to for years, streaming by file association and dependent streaming.  So now an application may be streamed at times OTHER than when its icon is clicked.  The two new situations are when you click on a document with the appropriate extension, the corresponding application will stream.  You can set this in the console, just like you set if you want the application to be set for...
