  • + Integration with App Volumes and Horizon. Next to App-V, it's the most widely used product.
  • + Relatively high rate of app compatibility. Flexibile solution with a tool for manually adding apps to servers with the SWV tool or stream with SWS.
  • + Highest rate of app compatibility of all virtualization products. The simplest packaging of all products, very little skill required. Native support for drivers. Ability to control isolation or integration of individual files and reg keys. Citrix Ready and SCCM Integrated.
  • - Though packaging is pretty streamlined and relatively simple with a series of text files, making updates to large applications requires recompiling the .exe which can take a long time. Development was pretty slow and this was the last product to support 64-bit applications. Newer versions of Office or new Windows Operating System have limited functionality.
  • - Development of the product was a bit slow compared to those from smaller vendors. EOL.
  • - Doesn't have a very large online community outside of Software2's recipe library which is not free.
