Gizmox Introduces First Tool-Based Solution for Transforming Enterprise Client/Server Apps From Desktop to Web/Cloud and Mobile
Instant CloudMove Provides Simplest, Fastest Transformation Path From .NET and VB6 Client/Server Applications to Secure SaaS-Native .NET Based Cloud/Web and Mobile Deployments
TEL AVIV, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - January 19, 2011) - Gizmox, the developer of the award-winning Visual WebGui (VWG) platform, today introduces Instant CloudMove, the first automated tool-based solution for transforming enterprise client/server applications from desktop to a Cloud/Web and mobile deployment. Leveraging Gizmox's Visual WebGui (VWG) virtualization application and streaming platform, Instant CloudMove provides a virtualized desktop application with browser accessibility with no plug-ins that maintains the same desktop-grade security, richness and performance.
VWG offers an exclusive approach to desktop application virtualization and streaming of .NET, VB6 client/server technologies. Unlike other virtualization solutions, VWG virtualizes Windows desktop applications at code level on top of standard Web server or VWG dedicated application server. This allows native HTML/HTML5-based browser accessibility anywhere, from any browser and device. VWG is also the only virtualization-based solution that enables transformation of existing application's code from unsupported legacy code to the latest .NET, while modernizing them during the process.
The transformed application delivers:
1. 50% of CPU usage, 10% of the bandwidth consumption: up to 10X lower operation costs as compared to existing Rich Internet Applications (RIA) solutions;
2. Support for 10X the number of users as compared to other application virtualization and streaming solutions;
3. Unhackable front ends that do not need extra data security and IP protection. VWG is the only software solution to withstand real world hacking challenge; and
4. Web native front ends that behave as native web applications.
Code transformation starts with a readiness assessment using Gizmox's free AssessmentTool that generates a report that details how close the application is to the Web/Cloud and mobile. At that point, the application can quickly be transformed by Gizmox or transformed by the developer or enterprise using Visual WebGui Version 6.4. Gizmox will be adding additional capabilities and designated tools to allow faster self-conversion during the year.
"Our vision is to enable enterprises, SMBs and individuals to transform their own business applications into SaaS deployments without specialized expertise or training," said Navot Peled, president at Gizmox. "With Instant CloudMove, businesses can reuse and transform their software to SaaS, Cloud/Web or mobile based deployments without reinvesting time, money and resources in re-architecting and rewriting desktop applications. They can now enjoy the best of virtualization, RIA and the desktop in one innovative solution. This is just the first step in our efforts. Soon, we will be making additional tools available to further expedite and automate the process."
