Application Virtualization

Application virtualization allows the user to use the desired application without installing it on their personal system, that is, users do not need to install or run additional applications.
In other words, regardless of what device the user uses (laptop, regular computer, tablet, mobile, thin client) with any type of operating system and any amount of hardware power, you provide any type of program for exploitation.
For example, even if the user has a weak 32-bit Windows 7 computer, he can use heavy 3D AutoCAD software with very good performance on the same Windows by programs virtualization.

That is, regardless of the type of Windows installed on the user’s computer, you have the power to install programs. And without any restrictions regarding the user’s device, make your own decision and provide him with the software he needs.
Today, one of the most important actions of IT managers is to migrate to virtual infrastructures. In the following, we discuss the reasons why organizations use program virtualization.

6 reasons for using application virtualization in organizations

  • easy usage:
    With just a few simple clicks, the user can use any program and software (with its different versions) without any deficiency, which ultimately leads to an increase in speed.

  • No need to upgrade users’ hardware and operating system:
    If the devices in your company do not have the minimum requirements in terms of hardware or software to install the operating system and software, instead of paying extreme expenses to upgrade them, you will have any type of software with the desired quality with program virtualization.

  • Information security:
    In terms of security, organization does not have the possibility to install a high-risk software on the user’s system. In this case, using program virtualization, install the desired software in a place other than the user’s personal computer and provide the user with only access to that software.

  • Simultaneous and independent access of multiple users of a program:
    In many companies, there are software and programs whose license has been purchased and only a limited number of users with a certain number of computers can use it. with program virtualization, you can use those programs without restrictions.

  • Specific software connected to specific devices
    Consider software that is attached to a particular device. For example: consider the software available in the laboratory, each of which is connected to a specific laboratory device, user must enter information daily and another must extract data, and if a doctor wants access to the patient’s information; That means three people need to use a software daily in such a way that they only have to work with one computer. This is in the case that the desired software is connected to a specific laboratory device, so provide access to the desired program for all three users by program virtualization.

  • Benefits of remote work
    Remote work is an inevitable path for modern management, in which a new relationship between work, employee and manager is generated, so that instead of coming to the workplace and doing their duties, the employee performs the tasks remotely.

    Now you get closer to remote work by application virtualization and minimize your business costs and pay off only for the service and results you receive.
    By using program virtualization, your employee no longer needs to connect from his personal system at home to the computer in the workplace, they just need to start working by running an application on the computer.
    This is in the case that the user uses the operating system and system programs along with the virtualized software.

    Consider that your company has another branch or that your employee is required to conduct a seminar outside the office in video conference mode, with the benefit of teleworking and program virtualization, organizational tasks will be much easier to perform.

The difference between VDI and Application Virtualization

Hardware resources

Application virtualization requires much less hardware resources to run compared to VDI.
In desktop virtualization, the user faces an unrealistic example of his desktop; That is, the user accesses the desktop remotely.
In this case, in order to provide the software needed by the user, the operating system must also be provided to him in addition to displaying the software, but we provide only the programs needed by the user in program virtualization.
In this case, the consumption of hardware resources in providing software to the user will be much less compared to providing the operating system and software, and this means that fewer hardware resources are used in the program virtualization compared to the desktop virtualization.
In fact, managers are less involved in virtualization complications and the server experiences less workload with program virtualization.

Software management tools

Software management tools are much more in application virtualization compared to desktop virtualization. There are dedicated tools for managing all kinds of software and their features in the virtualization infrastructure of programs. These special tools provide the possibility of installing a program in different versions so that the programs do not interfere with each other. In program virtualization, various software is placed in different folders and files, and their collection is presented to each user in the form of a package. In this case, the user will feel a professional experience in working with the software. That is, it does not feel any difference and works with a real example of the software it needs.
Also, due to access to his personal desktop, he uploads the necessary files from the system. But in desktop virtualization, the desktop is the remote desktop of a computer that is located somewhere else. In this case, he has to choose between his desktop and the virtualized desktop.

Advantages of application virtualization

  1. It is very easy to install and set up.
  2. It has the highest compatibility compared to desktop virtualization.
  3. Much less bandwidth is required to use virtual applications compared to virtual desktops.
  4. Using the user’s hardware resources saves server resources.
  5. Software interference is removed.
  6. The software update is minimized.
  7. It has the highest information security index compared to other virtualizations (desktop, desk, server).
  8. It has no dependence on the user’s operating system.

how to use virtualized programs?

Through the browser:
The user can access any software only through an internet browser with the lowest bandwidth.
(For example, the user can open the Photoshop software in his Firefox) To view the demo, you can visit
2. Through the application
The user uses the relevant software by running a small application on any type of device (mobile phone, laptop, computer) with remote support capability.

Customer satisfaction is the proof of our services quality!

We are well acquainted with the concept of program virtualization, for this concept different companies such as Microsoft, Citrix, VMware have introduced different products according to the type of customers.
Application virtualization can be for two people in a small office or for an organization with geographically dispersed branches in large dimensions of several thousand users.
Raha offers the most suitable solution for free, taking into account the customer’s needs, infrastructure and budget.

And questions

When your user opens the CRM program, all the information he observes in the browser window is transferred from the server as data to the user’s personal computer. And this means that there is a flow of information on the Internet. But with the application virtualization, we cannot have this flow of information and the user can only see the image differential (pixel color changes compared to the previous frame).

Because even an intruder with access to encryption and compression algorithms cannot access information!
That is, even if the intruder starts eavesdropping from the beginning of a session and even knows encryption and compression algorithms, after opening a package, he will only see information including: the pixel color with X coordinates has changed to Y amount. And in fact, it has not obtained any information.
Because of that, even the Pentagon has put its web base systems behind the program virtualization, because with the virtualization of programs, there is no information in the network.

Currently, most companies have changed the internal processes of their organization in the form of web-based software and use it, but they still need software that cannot be used on the web. For example, Photoshop, AutoCAD, etc., but with the help of program virtualization, they can easily use all the software along with their other web base programs on the internet browser.
