IRVINE, Calif. and LONDON, April 3, 2008 /PRNewswire/ — Endeavors Technologies, the pioneer in application streaming and virtualization technology, and its parent company, Tadpole Technology plc, today announced the immediate availability of Application Jukebox Enterprise Edition and Application Jukebox SaaS Edition. Application Jukebox is the next-generation application virtualization and streaming solution that provides a highly flexible and secure platform for on-demand application delivery.
The two versions of Application Jukebox available today include Endeavors' unique, fully-configurable virtualization that provides administrators with the flexibility to publish applications in fully isolated (sandboxed) mode, fully integrated mode, or any combination between the two options. Application Jukebox SaaS Edition features usage metering and a kiosk mode to support a pay-as-you-go model for application rental, plus portals that provide an easy-to-use environment for service providers and ISVs to create a custom application landing site. Application Jukebox Enterprise Edition supports Active Directory and offers user and group monitoring, as well as extensive tracking and support for cost-effective license management.
"We performed extensive testing of the beta version of Application Jukebox and are extremely impressed and excited with the product," said Ty Schwab, CEO/CTO at Blackhawk Technology Consulting. "The studio component of Application Jukebox allowed us to easily package Microsoft Office 2007 Enterprise and subsequently stream the application to a laptop in less than 12 seconds, which is very positive from a usability perspective. We are also impressed by the licensing model and reporting, which we found significantly more robust and reliable than what is offered in the new versions of SoftGrid and AppStream products."
"We have seen a great deal of interest in Application Jukebox from current and prospective customers," said Peter Bondar, CEO at Endeavors Technologies. "We are excited by the positive feedback from participants in our beta program and believe this will continue to grow as customers now begin deploying Application Jukebox."
About Application Jukebox
The Application Jukebox family of products contain three key components. Application Jukebox Player sits on the client to create the virtual application environment and provides user authentication and application license enforcement. Application Jukebox Server controls and delivers applications, provides usage monitoring and logging, plus group, user and application level administration. Application Jukebox Studio allows ISVs and IT administrators to create a streamable, virtualized "appset" from standard, Windows-based applications that is then published to the server.
