Symantec Workspace Virtualization 6.3 64-bit Customer Preview Now Available

Symantec has announced the 64-bit customer preview for its Symantec Workspace Virtualization 6.3 product - an application virtualization platform that has its roots going back to the Altiris Software Virtualization Solution (SVS) days.  

The following are new features in this 6.3 release:

  • Support for Windows 7 and Vista 64-bit editions – This release provides 64-bit support for the latest Microsoft desktop operating systems. Stream virtualized applications instead of reinstalling as you roll out Windows 7.
  • Automatic Application Streaming by File Extension – Provisioned applications are streamed automatically when associated files are opened on the system. For example, if Microsoft Word is provisioned but not streamed, the application is streamed automatically when a doc file is opened.
  • Microsoft Office 2010 support – This release provides better support for packaging, streaming, and virtualizing Microsoft Office 2010. See the packaging guidelines later in this document.

These are new features that audience members at Symantec Vision earlier this year said they were waiting on.  Symantec promised, and now that promise is close at hand.
