Almost immediately after getting back from the excellent App-V European User Group Day last week, I’m heading back to the mainland Europe next Monday for HP’s premier (European) enterprise event of the year, Discover 2011 in Vienna. This trip was graciously arranged by HP for which I thank them for!

So, in the last week there was a first (European) App-V User Group day, that was held in Microsoft NL’s offices at Schiphol / Amsterdam. Like almost a 100 others, I was there to attend the event and even though I did not have my own presentation, I got my share of publicity as well.
ExitVe, the utility for starting processes outside App-V virtual environment, from within that environment, is now available for downloading. You can find it from our community tools page at http://www.gridmetric.com/community/free.html .
Every now and then there might be a need to start processes outside the virtual “bubble”, from within the bubble; to effect changes to the real system or examine it without Virtual Environment (VE) being in a way. Since App-V does not natively offer such a capacity, I decided to write our own tool for doing just that: escaping the VE through a hatch!
Maybe somewhat surprisingly, I got some questions last Friday, during the first European App-V User Group day, about what exactly I do in the context of App-V…
We opened up a beta testing opportunity for upcoming Application Virtualization Explorer, version 2.3 a few weeks ago. At that post we also announced new features that were going to be in the product and that were already available in the beta as well.
While the new features mentioned will be getting a more detailed coverage in the upcoming weeks, I just wanted to write to tell about few new features which the beta does not support but will be in the actual 2.3 release.
What everyone and their mother should know about VFS in App-V, pt. 2 – Client –based operations for VFS folders and special behaviour of merged folders
In the previous article in the series, we discussed the different modes of Virtual File System (VFS) entries in a general level and exactly how application sees the files (and directories) stored in VFS –virtualized folders. This time over we are taking a little bit closer look at the client’s behavior when it comes creating new files or directories on these VFS-virtualized directories, as opposed to just reading in files that were carried over from the Sequencer.
So a while ago I was researching available cloud platforms as an infrastructure platform for a little skunkworks project of ours, and decided to concentrate on the bigger players that I already did know about by the reputation – but not so much in nitty-gritty details. Namely these two players were Microsoft’s Azure and Amazon’s EC2 or (AWS).
We have been working on the next “major minor” update to the Application Virtualization Explorer Professional -product for a while now, and since the release time is now starting to get close, I would like to announce opportunity for you to participate in beta testing. If you are interested in trying out AVE 2.3, and to […]
