ACE 2 Introduction & Demonstration

Posted by Gerben on 05/4/2007


VMware ACE enables desktop administrators to package an IT managed PC image within a policy managed virtual machine and deploy it to any physical PC. The package mentioned is either a tar.gz package (in case of linux) or a MSI-package (windows, duh). This MSI package can then be distributed with tools like Microsoft SMS/SCCM (System Center Configuration Manager). You can even run ACE on portable media like usb-sticks and so replace your stack of laptops you used to lend to customers. A cool product with lots of potential, we definitely are going to see and hear more of this.
