Enhances desktop virtualisation deployments
RES Software, a provider of desktop offerings, has released standalone Virtual Desktop Extender (VDX) technology, which is designed to enhance desktop virtualisation deployments.
The company said that the VDX technology enables local applications which do not run smoothly, or at all, in virtual environments to run within a virtual session.
RES VDX allows organisations to enhance a virtual desktop with applications that run locally.
The new offering extends the user workspace through independent computing architecture (ICA) and remote desktop protocol (RDP) virtual channels; and works with Citrix XenApp, Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft Remote Desktop Services and VMware View.
In addition, it enables organisations to keep personal user desktop environments separate from the corporate environment, which allows IT to host applications in the data centre, while simultaneously allowing users to run local applications.
The company said that the standalone offering will be available in January 2011.
