New Whitepaper on Application Virtualization

We’re pleased to announce the release of our first white paper from the project. Titled “Application Virtualization 2008/2009,” this original research deliverable provides a comprehensive look at the execution overhead and runtime performance characteristics of the leading application virtualization solutions from Microsoft, VMware, Citrix and Symantec.

Highlights include:

  • A detailed analysis of system and process-level overhead, including agent-related CPU and memory consumption.
  • Extensive OfficeBench benchmarking data derived from our own DMS Clarity Studio testing framework.
  • Planning and deployment recommendations for IT shops considering application virtualization technology.

You can download the white paper here (PDF). For more information on the or DMS Clarity Studio, please visit our web site:

Read your whitepaper via The problem I have with this report is that you did not include other solutions that compare directly against ThinApp.

Many of the other solutions mentioned are enterprise-level solution that have been addressing true enterprise requirements for many years.

To really have any credibility in the industry, you need to update your report to include InstallFree, Endeavors, and Xenocode. These three are the correct Apples to Apples comparison to ThinApp.

I believe you incorrectly state that Citrix XenApp 5 does not support x64. Can you backup your claim or provide additional details??
