KACE has announced a new version of its Virtual Kontainers application virtualisation technology.

According to KACE, Virtual Kontainers 2.0 is offered via a single, integrated web-based console that provides users with an easier, faster and less expensive alternative for creating, deploying and managing virtual applications.

The company said that it also includes improved application compatibility by way of a new signature update service which allows for KACE to respond more rapidly when it comes to adding support for changes to Windows, middleware and challenging new applications.

This will include the ability to easily update, patch or modify an existing virtual application package directly, without the need to start over with each required change.

Marty Kacin, KACE co-founder and CTO, said: “Application virtualisation is an important and powerful emerging technology that unfortunately has a lot of misconceptions surrounding it, such as that it is expensive and complex to implement and maintain.

“KACE Virtual Kontainers turns these misconceptions on their head through an extremely easy-to-use solution that is simple to deploy and offered at a low cost. We continue to push the boundary of our appliance-based systems management solutions to help IT rapidly provide real business value, instead of spending valuable time and effort wrestling with complex vendor tools.”
