|By Business Wire

the company that virtualizes everything above the OS, today introduced
CloudVolumes 2.0 to enhance the deployment and management of workloads
and applications. Users will now be able to instantly provision
workloads to cloud providers, while developers can easily test and
deploy their application stacks. CloudVolumes 2.0 also adds enhanced
support for Citrix XenApp. CloudVolumes is also announcing an upcoming
capability called AppCloaking, which will give customers additional
flexibility to deploy multiple applications inside a single stack and
expose applications per user based on policy. CloudVolumes will be
demonstrating the new release at Citrix Synergy at the Anaheim
Convention Center, May 6-8, 2014, in booth #517.
“Organizations are realizing the benefits of the cloud and making the
transition quickly; however, this introduces complexity into the
management of applications, as the processes are likely to change in a
new environment,” said Paul Burns, president, Neovise. “Enterprises need
a product that can help them deploy their applications in the cloud
without a major infrastructure overhaul, and developers need help
testing and rapidly deploying application stacks. CloudVolumes provides
the advanced management required for these environments, while
minimizing the resources required to make the transition.”
“Our push button data center and cloud vision will continue to drive
game changing innovation that reshapes how IT operates through
simplification, with increased virtualization,” said Raj Parekh, CEO,
Simplifying the Application Management and Deployment Lifecycle
CloudVolumes 2.0 offers:
Hybrid Multi-Cloud Enablement: CloudVolumes will now
cloud-enable customers by allowing them to instantly provision
workloads to cloud providers, such as AWS and Azure, enabling hybrid
cloud use cases. Users will be able to seamlessly move from their data
center to the cloud.
Developer Cloud Enablement: CloudVolumes will enable
developers to instantly test and deploy application stacks, driving
more efficient resource utilization through increased virtualization.
Labor spent building and supporting development and test environments
will be reduced, as well as defects and the costs of custom
Citrix XenApp support: CloudVolumes’ simplified virtual
appliance now works with XenApp to enable support for both Citrix
XenDesktop/XenApp and VMware Horizon deployments. IT and service
providers will now be able to offer users a rich choice of
applications, cost effectively, differentiating their service offering
with instant delivery.
“With over 15,000 students, managing applications and their deployment
can be a very daunting task, especially without a major infrastructure
overhaul,” said Lucien Haak, team leader workplaces, Maastricht
University. “CloudVolumes enables us to easily manage our complex
desktop applications, so that we can rapidly deploy them to our students
and faculty. Since it requires no modifications to existing
applications, it is easy to implement and also reduces our software and
hardware requirements, which helps us save on costs.”
Easily Deploy Multiple Applications Inside a Single Application Stack
AppCloaking, a soon to be released capability, will be introduced across
the CloudVolumes family of products and will provide users with the
flexibility to deploy multiple applications inside a single volume,
instantly delivering applications only to entitled users. This unique
approach will simplify deployment for users who want a golden image and
single volume containing many applications, while avoiding the cost of
delivering and managing large base images and simply hiding applications
within them, which significantly limits agility.
"Our white label desktop-as-a-service platform provides GPU intensive
software vendors with an instant cloud offering and more, enabling users
to remotely access their desktop from any device and location with a
native user experience," said Benny Willen, CEO, Cloudalize. "With
CloudVolumes, we can give our users this native experience, just as they
would have on their physical desktop, without needing to change their
profile or behavior. With a single point of deployment and control, it's
easy for us to manage applications while optimizing performance for
“As we work with customers, we uncover more use cases that show the need
for Software Defined Workload™ management solutions that simplify
lifecycle management in a cloud and virtualized world,” said Harry
Labana, SVP and chief product officer, CloudVolumes. “Our goal is to
enable a push button- everything data center and cloud to provide
customers with flexibility when it comes to their diverse workloads, so
they are able to easily deliver them across heterogeneous
infrastructures, at scale, increasing efficiency and saving on costs.”

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.
The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
