Extending the App Volumes Ecosystem with RES Software

By Bob Janssen, founder and CTO, RES Software

Bob J HeadshotIn our digital economy every worker’s career journey is increasingly centered around the apps they use each day. What they do with those apps is to a great extent how today’s workers deliver value. Which means the delivery of apps at just the right time, configured for the individual needs of each worker, is a crucial element of business value. And here’s another: with security needs ramping up every year, the ability to revoke access to apps has become just as important and, in its own way, valuable to the business as the use of those apps.

App delivery has grown up. Together, VMware App Volumes and RES are partnering to deliver the seamless and agile delivery of apps in a way that transforms how IT delivers, and automates the digital workspace.

Introducing VMware App Volumes 2.10 – A Unique Solution For Real-Time Application Lifecycle Management

By Harry Labana, vice president, products, End-User Computing, VMware

Harry Labana 2I can’t believe it – it’s been nearly a year since we released VMware App Volumes 2.5!

We have been innovating at a rapid pace, shipping several releases throughout the year with new features such as storage groups, multi-vCenter Server support and enhancements to VHD to name a few. We have been humbled by incredible customer interest and adoption, which has far exceeded our expectations. I want to thank every customer and partner who has guided us on our journey so far.

Delivering an enterprise class, real-time application lifecycle management solution requires a commitment to the cause of re-imagining how to reduce or eliminate the complexity of managing applications. Status quo methods have not been disrupted in over a decade and unfortunately, the habits they have created with IT cannot scale for businesses that require on-demand infrastructure services.
