VMware Delivers VMware ACE 2 Enterprise Edition
The Only Product That Allows IT Administrators to Centrally Manage and Control Virtual Desktops Installed on any PC; Pocket ACE

VMware announced the general availability of VMware ACE 2 Enterprise edition. VMware ACE is a breakthrough product that enables IT desktop managers to create a standard PC environment including operating system, data and applications, wrap it with IT policies to protect the contents, package it into a virtual machine and deploy it to any managed or unmanaged licensed PC client.

The second generation, VMware ACE 2 Enterprise edition, is designed to deliver the only highly controlled and easily managed enterprise-class virtualization product for deploying desktops to any PC, providing a rich virtual desktop environment to end users while maintaining the control required by the governing IT organization. The product also features Pocket ACE, which enables deployment of a full-featured desktop virtual machine to a portable media device such as a USB flash drive, portable hard drive or Apple iPod. End users can then securely access their standard corporate desktop from nearly any other client machine, from home laptops to business center PCs.

"VMware ACE 2 Enterprise edition is a value-add to IT organizations because it allows desktop administrators to accommodate the increasing number of workers who use personal computers for work-related purposes," said Jerry Chen, director of enterprise desktop platforms and solutions at VMware. "By offering the ability to distribute managed and controlled 'virtual laptops' that can be deployed anywhere, VMware ACE enables administrators to avoid investments in new hardware while keeping pace with a workforce that is increasingly moving outside traditional managed IT environments."

VMware ACE 2 Enterprise edition features the newly introduced VMware ACE Management Server, which allows IT administrators to centrally track and manage thousands of VMware ACE desktops and apply standard policies to them from a single console. As the first production-ready VMware virtual appliance, the VMware ACE Management Server is available pre-installed, pre-configured and ready to deploy. In addition, VMware ACE 2 Enterprise edition utilizes the latest VMware virtualization platform, enabling IT administrators to use VMware Workstation 6 with the ACE Option Pack to create and securely package VMware ACE virtual machines for deployment to end users who then can run them on any licensed PC or laptop.
