RingCube Nominated for SYS-CON's "Virtualization Journal Readers' Choice Awards"

MojoPac Enterprise nominated in the "Best Desktop Virtualization Platform" category

RingCube’s MojoPac is a Managed Virtual Desktop that enables end users to access their complete personal computing environment (applications, data and user settings) on any Windows PC. Desktop environments can be delivered over a network, on a portable USB device or provisioned directly onto a PC.

Enterprises can create and manage these environments centrally, regardless of the delivery method. Yet the virtual desktop is run locally, ensuring full performance and availability, regardless of the availability or reliability of network connections.

MojoPac virtualization technology is built and optimized for the desktop, avoiding the drawbacks associated with carrying a virtual machine and a copy of the operating system. Its small footprint (40 MB) makes it easy to distribute across a network, while its minimal overhead (<1%) means it can run data- and processor-intensive applications without impacting performance. MojoPac does not require a player to be installed on the host, and therefore can run on any Windows PC. Further, it does not present any of the licensing problems associated with carrying an OS in a virtual machine.

SYS-CON’s Virtualization Journal’s “Readers’ Choice Awards”
SYS-CON's Virtualization Journal announced today its first annual Virtualization Readers' Choice Awards. SYS-CON's Readers' Choice Awards, also known as the "Oscars of the Software Industry" has been one of the most prestigious industry award programs for more than a decade. This year's virtualization awards will be given in 17 categories and award-winning products and services will be selected by Virtualization Journal readers.

Virtualization takes the cost and complexity out of IT, and can even help us reduce the CO2 footprint. IDC has stated that the virtualization services market alone is going to reach $11.7 billion by 2011 and in general this technology, which has been around for a good number of years, seems suddenly to be on everyone's mind.

In short, Virtualization is fast becoming a key requirement for every server in the data center, enabling increased workloads in server consolidation projects, efficient software development and testing, resource management for dynamic data centers, application re-hosting and compatibility, and high-availability partitions.

The tipping point, though - as anticipated by industry experts already back in 2005 - seems to be coming in 2008.
