Thin Clients, VDI and Linux integration from the front lines.... Raw and sometimes unedited notes based on my experiences with VMware, Thin Clients, Linux etc.

Technical Overview of the Thinstall Application Virtualization Solution

Thinstall has created a white paper to give a technical overview of application virtualization and their product.

Thinstall is an Application Virtualization Platform that enables complex software to be delivered as self-contained EXE files which can run instantly with zero installation from any data source. The core of Thinstall VS is the Virtual Operating System, a small light-weight component which is embedded with each “Thinstalled” application.

VOS

Thinstall acts as a thin Virtual Operating System (VOS) that merges a virtual system environment with the real system environment.  The Thinstall Virtual OS consists of the Virtual File system (VFS), and Virtual Registry (VREG).

Thinstall can transparently stream large applications from a shared network drive with no client or server software to install as well as run the application “off-line” on the PC.

The VOS works exclusively in user mode and requires no device drivers or preinstalled clients. It can run applications in managed and unmanaged Windows environments without requiring elevated security rights. Thinstall enables implementation of stronger security by allowing applications previously requiring admin rights to run on locked-down user accounts.

Thinstall protects the local PC against changes to the file system and registry for both custom developed and commercial office applications with no source code changes enabling true separation of application and OS.

Thinstall generates a single secure executable file which virtualizes the application and associated registry and filesystem changes.
