What is SoftGrid?

by The Editor [Published on 8 July 2008 / Last Updated on 8 July 2008]

An overview of Microsoft Softgrid, now called Microsoft Application Virtualization and how it can simplify your virtualization environment.

Microsoft purchased Softgrid and has renamed it Microsoft Application Virtualization. With this software, you are able to virtualize your applications and deliver them over the network. With application virtualization, your software applications are never installed on the end user devices so there are never any software conflicts. Because of this, software testing is reduced, time to set up end user computers is reduced, and software troubleshooting is reduced. Overall, application virtualization is going to save time and money. 

Microsoft Application Virtualization competes with XenApp and VMware’s ThinApp.
