At Nektra we have done a performance comparison of Virtualizing IE6 on W7 in VMWare ThinApp and Symantec Workspace Virtualization. 

You can read the full article in our blog: Benchmarking IE6 Virtualization: VMWare ThinApp vs. Symantec Workspace

We use SpyStudio to compare ThinApp and Workspace Virtualization performance. Both Symantec and VMWare highlight the use of application virtualization to run legacy web applications. There is a huge number of mission critical web applications that only run correctly on Internet Explorer 6 and while companies may be able to afford the cost of migrating applications to modern browsers, they cannot afford even a short...

Customers who use Symantec Workspace Virtualization can choose between the Standard Version or the Pro Version that includes streaming. Between SWV and SWV Pro you can also use SMART. And there is a new version available that you can use to centraly manage your applications, and give the end user some control on his layers like activate, de-activate and reset.

There is a download there specifically for an integrated installation that should integrate with your CMS server.
