Extending the management capability of the MokaFive Suite to lower management and license costs

VMWORLD (Booth #1736), SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.—August 31, 2010—MokaFive™, the virtual desktop management company, today announced a technology preview of MokaFive BareMetal Player, which installs directly onto users’ machines and allows them to run virtual desktop images without the need of a host OS. VMworld attendees can be among the first to see MokaFive BareMetal Player in action at booth #1736.

For company-owned machines, BareMetal Player extends MokaFive’s industry-leading management capability to include the entire desktop software stack, thus eliminating the management and licensing costs of a host OS. Better yet, MokaFive BareMetal delivers on performance, including exceptional handling of 3D graphics such as those required by Windows 7 Aero.

“MokaFive Suite is already the broadest client-side virtualization solution in the industry, allowing customers to access their standard desktop image on corporate and personal machines,” said Purnima Padmanabhan, Vice President of Product Management at MokaFive. “With BareMetal Player, we’re also the most complete solution. For company-owned machines, MokaFive can manage the entire software stack, allowing customers to avoid the cost and burden of managing a host OS.”

At VMworld, MokaFive will be demonstrating BareMetal Player, and many of its key features:

  • Broad hardware support, allowing companies more sourcing alternatives
  • Optimized performance, including 3D graphics support
  • Automatic refresh of the full software stack, including everything above the host BIOS
  • Ability to run a single image across Windows, Macs and machines running BareMetal Player
  • Full administrator policy control via the MokaFive Console, including the ability to remotely destroy the image on a lost device.
  • Support for multiple images on the same machine, allowing separate personal and locked down corporate desktops

MokaFive BareMetal Player is expected in early 2011, with a beta program available later this year.
