Tranxition Announces General Availability of AdaptivePersona™ Foundation

Simple, Easy, Cost Effective Personality for Hosted Virtual Desktops

BEAVERTON, OR--(Marketwire - October 12, 2009) - Tranxition, a leader in desktop personality and management solutions, today announced the general availability of AdaptivePersona™ Foundation. This edition of the AdaptivePersona solution focuses on centrally managed virtual desktops and was debuted at VMworld in San Francisco, August 2009.

In desktop environments, personality becomes entangled with the operating system and applications, which leads to additional IT costs as well as lost user productivity when any part of the environment changes or fails. AdaptivePersona addresses these issues by virtualizing the entire desktop personality -- user customizations and data, in and outside of the Windows profile.

Personalized Non-Persistent Virtual Desktops

The Foundation edition of AdaptivePersona enables dynamic assembly of non-persistent virtual desktops from standard components while allowing each assembled desktop to have individual personality. Using Tranxition's patented 'personality hypervisor', AdaptivePersona intelligently intercepts and virtualizes desktop personality activity. This eliminates many of the issues related to the use of Roaming Profiles in VDI environments -- profile corruption, long log on and off times, and 'profile bloat'.

"Our first edition of the AdaptivePersona solution addresses an urgent requirement for businesses implementing centralized virtual desktops," said Bob Hoffman, president and COO of Tranxition. "AdaptivePersona Foundation lets organizations deploy personalized virtual desktops to users without the storage and management issues experienced when other solutions are used."

AdaptivePersona Foundation provides a simple to install, easy to manage, and cost effective solution for personalizing virtual desktops. With an architecture based on standard Microsoft components, AdaptivePersona Foundation can easily be integrated into implementations based on popular VDI frameworks such as Citrix XenDesktop, VMware View, and the Microsoft VDI Standard Suite. Additionally, AdaptivePersona easily integrates into real-world management frameworks and processes.
