AutonoWare ConversionBox first to accelerate Microsoft App-V 5.0 deployments and save up to 95% of time, improve quality and reduce TCO even further.

Online PR News – 25-April-2013 – London – 24 April 2013 – AutonoWare Ltd, the leading Virtualization Automation vendor, today announces the release support for Microsoft App-V 5.0 in its ConversionBox solution. With this addition to the current App-V 4.6 support, organizations are now able to significantly accelerate application deployments, Windows 7/8 migrations and Private Cloud environments for all App-V applications.

“Application Virtualization is an area that provides organizations a considerably improved experience for managing their applications portfolio. However, we also noticed early on that the most time-consuming and costly elements are packaging the existing applications and staying on top of updates. ConversionBox addresses these challenges with a single Virtualization Automation solution that is incredibly fast, very simple and extremely affordable.” said Kim Schulte-Zurhausen, Founder and CTO AutonoWare.

ConversionBox for App-V takes the “art of sequencing” out of the equation and transforms this process into a predictable and fully automated process. ConversionBox delivers on the promise of reducing time and cost, while increasing IT service quality and efficiency. It transforms Microsoft Software Installer (MSI) packages into centrally managed virtual services with Microsoft App-V in a considerably faster timeframe; reducing deployment time by up to 95%.

Patrick Jaspers, Sales Strategy Manager Desktop & Devices at Microsoft emphasizes the importance of applications and the virtualization process: “To accelerate Windows 7/8 migrations, simplify desktop virtualization and enhance the cloud movement for our partners and customers, virtualization and applications are essential. To have an automation solution like AutonoWare’s ConversionBox that supports the conversions for both App-V 4.6 and 5.0 applications can only help our customers save time and associated costs”.

“After getting it up and running within an hour, we only had to apply one simple ‘drag & drop’ action to add applications. With ConversionBox we have seen hundreds of MSI’s going through the Virtualization Automation process in a single day.” said Rashied Akrum, Managing Director of Benelux Knowledge Distributor Prianto. This is also confirmed by Kamel Abu Ayash, Managing Director of AsiaPac Distributor AgileTec: “ConversionBox for App-V is the easiest, most efficient and economical way for our partners to convert single or batches of applications into virtual services for their customers”.
