Virtualization | Application Virtualization | VMware ThinApp (formerly thinstall)


VMware ThinApp 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 ThinApp is the Virtual Operating System, a small light-weight component which is embedded with each “Thinstalled” application.

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

ThinApp packages can be deployed using any existing software deployment systems including Active Directory and SMS. ThinApp has no client or server components to manage or maintain and ThinApp can transparently stream large applications from any network attached storage devices without server software.

ThinApp was formerly called thinstall.

Experience yourself how well application virtualization works: Download Firefox (18 MB), OpenOffice (110 MB) and other programs as thinstall packages and simply launch them on your pc - no installation required.
