I could not find an entry in regards to this and I know some of us had talked about this at the last users meeting, but there is finally a 64 bit version of Workspace Virtualization formerly known as Software Virtualization Solution.

It can be found here:

Last week DinamiQs launched its new Virtual memory Extender. The Virtual Memory Extender or VME enables administrators to run with low memory on desktops, laptops, virtual servers and/or Virtual desktops.

One of the traditional issues with running ever more Virtual Machines on server platforms is the fast increase of CPU power (ie Moore's Law) versus the slower increase in available memory on these platforms. Where CPU utilization in many cases remains relatively low, memory boundaries are reached early on, especially in the light of more demanding Operating Systems.

DinamiQs solves this memory issue through its Virtual Memory Extender (VME), an advanced technology that enhances the Windows memory manager in Windows 2003 and Windows 2008 servers by basically extending the memory of these servers transparantly onto the local or central disk subsystem. Use of the technology also leverages the speed of intelligent storage subsystems by offloading applications to that...

As some of you are aware we just released SP6 MP1 and there's a few things that need to be pointed out since I know many of you are eager to get using SP6 MP1.

(Until we have them up on the public download site please contact your sales rep to get the release--once the build is public I'll do one of my posts listing what's in the release and where to get it).

First off any XPFs or VSAs made with either of the betas (January's or July's) are not supported with SP6 so you will need to repackage any application that you made with them.  Any XPF or VSA exported from SP4 or earlier will work with the build so it's only the beta builds you have to worry about.  For the most of you this will only be x64 related stuff.

The same goes for any Office 2010 packages people were experimenting with pre-SP6 MP1.  This includes the recalled SP6 release.  You will need to repackage any office 2010 stuff.  As this is...

Probably you have more than one USB flash drive and you have stored many helpful programs for your IT daily activities.

But what about USB Flash driver performances, have you ever asked, how to Check the Speed of a USB Flash Drive to evaluate the best one ?

I found SpeedOut, a nice freeware tool to see read and write speeds of your USB drive. Perform this test. Easy to use, run SpeedOut and start the test, it does not have any impact in existing data on USB drive. The final result is shown below :

Regarding some of the other message threads from SilentCastle (https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/swv...) and (https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/articles/v...) mentioning how Trend conflicts with SWV, we have been in contact with Trend and trying to find a fix for our environment as well and their engineers supplied us with the registry fix as well the files to overwrite the default scanning engine. I hope others in the community using Trend can benefit from the performance increases.

VMWorld 2010 is right around the corner! This is an exciting conference for Symantec Endpoint Virtualization and we hope you'll be stopping by to say hello while you're at the conference.

We've got lots of technical sessions to share information with our community, as well as a booth where you can drop by and see our products live in action and talk with product experts about the challenges that virtualization addresses. We want to hear your stories as well, and find out what you're doing. Of course, a technology conference doesn't have to be all about technology, so we're throwing a party for our customers, have a game show planned, and of course will be giving away lots of cool prizes.

Join us for the Symantec Super Session
SS1006: Wednesday, Sept 1 at 1:30pm in Room 134 (Moscone North)

Introduction

One of the really positive things about working with the SEV team is that we take issues seriously and work hard to get them corrected. One of the negative things about being me is I have a terrible memory, of what releases we have put out in the past. I hope to use this blog to keep myself, and hopefully you, up to date on SEV releases.

Despite the long name this issue is pretty simple.  There are certain situations that when activating an Office 2010 layer you the following error message:

"BCSSync.exe - Unable to Locate Component

This application has failed to start because mscoree.dll was not found.  Re-installing the application may fix the problem."

What's going on is a service of Office 2010 named Business Connectivity Service is looking for mscoree.dll which is one of the core .NET files, but doesn't actually need mscoree.dll to run.  The reason for this error is that Office 2010 was captured into SWV on a system with .NET installed and them migrated over to a machine without .Net.  This is an example of an issue you get with SWV where something expects certain files to be on the system even if the application doesn't need them and is a main reason why we tell...
