Pros
  • + 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.
  • + Integration with App Volumes and Horizon. Next to App-V, it's the most widely used product.
  • + Has the most options for deployment with MSI, portable exe, Streaming from TubroServer, Using the TurboHub or integrated with LANDesk's ESD.
  • + Some apps launch in the browser and Turbo.net plugin is also now supported macOs.
  • + You can isolate the network stack
Cons
  • - Development of the product was a bit slow compared to those from smaller vendors. EOL.
  • - 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.
  • - Small online community. Packaging and troubleshooting with the various levels of isolation requires skill.
