What is VMware AppBlast?

with 11 comments

At this years VMworld in Las Vegas, VMware introduced a new product called AppBlast. This new technology enables you to use remote applications of any type and platform and deliver them to any HTML5 browser or device. It doesn’t matter if you’re using Mac, Windows, Linux, ChromeOS. You don’t need to install any client, all is pure HTML5. In the demo at VMworld Scott Davis showed a demo on his MacBook, running AppBlast in Goolge Chrome.


In the screenshot you can see the Lauch Portal which gives you access to all the published Windows applications.

A really interesting technology, but what does this give you for the future?

From my view this is a game changing technology! Today if you want to run Windows applications on an iPad or Mac, you always need to install some client and use a remoting technology such as Terminal Services, XenApp or VDI to access the applications but with AppBlast there is no need for a client. This fits exactly in the VMware End User Computing vision, Brian Gammage gave to the audience at VMworld. Companies can centralize their desktop workloads with desktop- and application virtualization and bring it together with web based and SaaS applications via VMware’s Horizon AppManager. But instead of installing a View Client for example and delivering a full Windows desktop, you can just deliver one application to the user.

Think about a complete solution with Zimbra as collaboration solution, AppBlast, Horizon AppManager, Project Octopus, View and ThinApp! This is the user workspace of the future!

Check the video linked below to get a deeper insight of the new technology!
