Endeavors Offers Free Desktop Application Virtualization

Endeavors Technologies' free Application Jukebox Lite will compete with products such as Citrix Systems' XenApp and VMware's ThinApp.

Endeavors Technologies is introducing Application Jukebox Lite, a free version of its application streaming product, Application Jukebox. The lite version is restricted to use on a single server.

Endeavors enlarges the field of application virtualization already occupied by the likes of Citrix Systems XenApp and VMware's ThinApp. With its Application Jukebox Lite, available for free download at www.endeavors.com/TryItNow, the firm has taken a step toward commoditizing it.

Application streaming is where desktop applications are virtualized and run on a central server, with end users getting the presentation of their requests for application services at their desktop. Application Jukebox Lite replaces a more stripped down offering that preceded it, AppExpress Lite. Jukebox Lite is a fully functional version of Jukebox and will give prospective customers the opportunity to use it on a single server.

Running virtualized applications tends to reduce administrative costs because there is a handful of applications to maintain on a central server instead of hundreds or thousands at end user desktops. CEO Peter Bondar said his firm was making the free copy available to get more potential customers involved with using virtualized applications. The lite version is one of three now available. Jukebox also comes in a software-as-a-service version and an Enterprise edition.

Endeavors Technologies is the former Tadpole Technologies, producer of high performance portable workstations. It transformed itself into a software company in 2003, and focused on application streaming in mid-2007. It changed its name to Endeavors this month.
