Podcast: An Introduction to Application Virtualization

Hardware virtualization has one major drawback: your applications must run on the virtual machines you’ve defined. Imagine assigning virtual machines to applications as needed so they can always run at their best.

Hardware virtualization has one major drawback: your applications are confined to running on the virtual machines you’ve defined. What if you could assign virtual machines as your applications need them, so that your business-critical applications always run at their best?

That’s the goal behind application virtualization. We discuss the technology with Gordon Jackson, virtualization evangelist at DataSynapse, a company that makes real-time infrastructure products that dynamically configure and active applications with shared resources. Gordon discusses the differences between hardware and software virtualization, what apps run best in such an environment, and the best practices that will help you implement and manage virtualized apps.
