Dell has just released vWorkspace - MokaFive Suite version 3.17. With MokaFive Suite you can deliver a centrally-managed, corporate Windows 7 virtual machine to non-corporate computing end points running the MokaFive Suiteclient hypervisor. This allows you to "containerize" your corporate data and applications within the corporate virtual machine.
The list below details the features included in this release:
Dell's vWorkspace - Mokafive SuiteCreator is now integrated with VMware Player 5. This allows you to create LivePC images using Virtual Hardware 9.
The primary benefit of Virtual Hardware 9 is support for Windows 8 guest images (a Windows 8 LivePC Preview is included in this release).
Dell's vWorkspace - Mokafive Suite now enables testing Windows 8 LivePC images running on Mac and Windows hosts (but not BareMetal hosts).
With this preview, some limitations apply:
Full support for Windows 8 LivePC images will be in an upcoming release.
Dell's vWorkspace - MokaFive Suite now supports Chinese localization of vWorkspace - MokaFive Suite Player and the browser-based end-user login and download screens.
This release includes enhancements to prevent unauthorized changes to MokaFive SuitePlayer and LivePC images.
This release includes improvements for deploying multiple vWorkspace - MokaFive Suite Management Servers behind a load balancer, applicable to large enterprise deployments.
This release introduces several enhancements to ease administration and improve user experience, such as disabling unused LivePC image versions to avoid mistargetings, and adjusting display resolution on a BareMetal machine from within a Windows XP or Windows 7 LivePC***.
Provides end users the control to assign additional host CPU resources to improve LivePC performance.
For BYO initiatives, administrators can present a custom End User License Agreement to users, and track user acceptance from the Management Server.
This mechanism adds flexibility for IT administrators to collect important host attributes and to perform critical checks and actions at vWorkspace - MokaFive Suite Player start time, before users gain access to LivePC images. Results can be reported back to the Management Server.
Provides an advanced method for administrators to implement the Domain Join Packet creation process, without the need to use vWorkspace - MokaFive Suite Creator.
This can be used by enterprises to:
