VMware – AppBlast. One word…. Wow!

VMware have a history of innovation and creating disruptive technology. Disruption may sound like bad thing, although as we know with things like the VMware hypervisor, disruption makes people money. It may be disruptive, but if the benefits are clear then people standardise on the technology and IT Resellers, Vendors and professionals benefit from the plethora of technology requirements which spill out the sides to accomodate these new marvells of modern tech.

VMware first set the trend when they abstracted the OS dependancy on directly seeing physical hardware, by introducing a hypervisor; now they have taken away the application dependancy on seeing the operating system..  lovelly jubbly ! this sounds good, but why ? how? what? 

I’m a little light on the nuts and bolts right now, but needless to say; needless to say, if you can deliver a windows/linux/mac application to any device with a browser supporting HTML5, the benefit is clear ! Visio on my iPad.. yes please, Safari on my Windows PC.. Why not ?!

I shall await the finer details with baited breath, but leave you with a pretty cool demo as shown below..   geeky soul food ! Enjoy !!
