It seems that ever since we acquired Softricity and made this application virtualization technology available via the MDOP subscription, it has really taken off like wildfire in EDU. Below are a few recent case studies and news articles that have been published around its usage at Kent SD in Washington State and Fairfax CSD in the DC area:
- Innovative School District Supports Growing IT Environment with Application Virtualization
- School district uses virtualization to ‘kid-proof’ 10,000 student PCs
- Microsoft Application Virtualization 4.5 Nears Release
And I can certainly attest to the several other implementations across both HED and K12 institutions as well – I have seen first hand the impact this technology has had on under-staffed and under-budgeted institutions. MAV is certainly a game-changing technology IMHO.
With MAV 4.5 just around the corner as well as the former Kidaro technology (see blog post below this one – Session II video – about 50% through the stream!) looking to soon be part of our virtualization story, I see nothing but more goodness to come!
