Somewhere between the physical and the virtual
More announcements ...
Hi everyone, we wanted to get you a quick link to a new whitepaper written by our friend and MVP Ment van der Plas. During our recent trip to Amsterdam the team had a chance to sit down with Ment and talk about Virtualization, and in particular his experience in the area of Application Virt.
Ment has spent some serious time and effort writing this paper, and he just let us know it is now final and released. So, we wanted to get you a link in case anyone would be interested. A few people in Redmond helped review his paper, but it is largely based on real world, customer experiences, and expert advice developed over the past dew years talking with customers.
Here is an excerpt from the Introduction:

This whitepaper addresses some detailed functionality differences between the three main scenarios; the App-V Full Infrastructure, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2 Integrated and Standalone. As a result the provided comparison matrix in this document can support in making the right decision.If any delivery model stands out on general common criteria it would be Configuration Manager 2007. Configuration Manager is a broad management platform and a de facto standard amongst electronic software distribution systems…….’
