April 1st DinamiQs launched it's hybrid cloud portal. The webinar where we showed our powerpoint slide deck with the Hybrid cloud portal sheets where very successful and we got a lot of questions.

But it even gets better.

Last week our datacenter was installed and configured and the hybrid cloud is up and running.

We have a whole crew of people testing the cloud to see if we did a great job with installing and configuring.

And end of the coming week the portal will be opened for anyone who wants to see the cloud.

The hybrid cloud portal will facilitate companies who want to see what it means to have a desktop or applications in the cloud and we also got a lot of questions on how we published SWV apps in the cloud.

Next week we will do a full demo for our partners and then the cloud portal will also be opened for Connect members that are involved in the Endpoint virtualization community.

See and experience how you can leverage...

Peter Cornet and his team were wearing out the soles of their shoes managing the 7,000 endpoint estate to the ROC Mondriaan education institute in The Netherlands. Regular physical on-site interventions, manual imaging and provisioning, and other tasks meant this IT manager was almost overwhelmed by the constantly changing, high maintenance end-users and 450 applications. In response, ROC Mondriaan partnered with Scense B.V., one of the Netherlands’ fastest-growing providers of workspace management solutions. The Scense User Workspace Management solution eliminates complexity within the institute’s environment, by managing and delivering applications and desktops transparently together. The Scense dynamic workspace virtualization solution, which works in conjunction with Symantec Endpoint Virtualization Suite, has enabled ROC Mondriaan to re-deploy 15 of the 40 staff previously managing endpoints, reduce the time needed to provision a typical 30-endpoint classroom from...

This week we released SWV SP7 (6.4.1266), formally known as Skylark, which what we're calling a hardening release.  After the last two big releases, SP4 and SP6, we decided to make this release focus on only bug fixes so there are no new features that have been added.  We spent a lot of time with existing and new customers working in their environments, and how they used the product, to ensure that SWV is a better product.

This release will be up on the public download site within the next few weeks and for the mean time you can get SP7 by contacting support.


Some of the fixed issues include:

Non-True Type fonts, if in a layer, may not properly load.

Fixed several causes of getting a Black Screen of death upon system startup when SWV is on a machine.

There were instances where scheduled tasks wouldn't run if a layer was active.

Fixed a lot of BSOD conditions.

Many bugs were fixed that will...
