RES Launches New Cross-Platform Workspace for Windows

There's a lot of other new-product news being announced at Citrix Synergy 2009 (Las Vegas through May 7) besides that of the host company.

Longtime Citrix partner RES Software, whose software helps manage often-difficult-to-deal-with Microsoft Windows environments, launched its new PowerFuse MyWorkspace Edition May 5 at the conference and expo.

PowerFuse MyWorkspace Edition enables enterprises to provide Windows users with a personalized user workspace across multiple devices, operating systems (yes, that includes Linux) and application delivery mechanisms.

MyWorkspace Edition delivers user and application configuration settings from one intuitive console, completely eliminating the need for scripting. It also supports all delivery mechanisms, providing users with a consistent user workspace across Citrix, VMware or Microsoft environments.

And it supports three major application virtualization technologies, working out of the box with Microsoft App-, Citrix XenApp and VMware ThinApp.

RES PowerFuse MyWorkspace Edition pricing starts at $45 per seat license, including first-year solution insurance. The product is now available for download here.
