The long awaited App-V 4.6 within MDOP 2010 is finally here! This means, most importantly, that there is now support for x64 on client and server platforms! This has been a show stopper for a lot of people when trancending from locally installed apps to application virtualization. I talked about this on Atea Community 2009, and now is definately the time to start thinking about virtualizing your applications.
Some of the features include (taken from the MDOP Official Blog):
- App-V 4.6 is now compatible with 64-bit Windows client and server platforms
- App-V 4.6 enables Windows 7 mobile users to access apps on the road
- App-V 4.6 and SCCM 2007 R2 SP2 now deliver virtual applications faster
- App-V 4.6 saves on SAN storage
