With application virtualization, it is possible to run an application that is not installed on the work station from the very same work station. This technology isolates applications from the underlying operating system and other applications in order to achieve greater compatibility and mobility of the applications.

The most significant advantages of application virtualization are:

• Reduction of maintenance needs: there is no need for maintenance, installation or uninstallation of applications in the local PC.

• Availability of the application at any time and in any place. You only need to have network access and a compatible device (PC, terminal, laptop…).

• The operating system is not modified or degraded.

• Several versions of the same program or different programs, whose simultaneous installation and running could be incompatible in the same system, can be run (each application is run in its own virtual environment,
so they do not interfere with each other).

• Quickness and ease in application deployment.

• The number of licenses is optimized in the case of proprietary software.

These are the main advantages, but there are also some disadvantages regarding app virtualization. We will analyze them in another post this week, so stay tuned!

Their main goal was to drive attention to the importance of privacy, user data protection, and compliance of the General Data Protection Regulation (RGPD). It is a regulation characterized by significant fines for non-compliance since its implementation in 2018.

How to avoid issues with virtual machines

Virtualization comes with a wide range of benefits for organizations. It helps cut IT costs and reduces downtime while increasing efficiency and productivity. It also increases the resiliency of networks, primarily when disasters occur, and promotes more green-friendly operations.

However, using virtual machines also comes with a set of downsides. Information security may get compromised, workloads mixed up, separation duties lost, among other issues. It is vital to know how you can get over these problems, and that’s what this article will discuss.
