  • MDOP 2010, Med-V SP1 RC Launches

    Posted by bink on February 23 2010, 4:26 AM. Posted in Med-V, app-v.

    Today Microsoft announced important updates for business customers considering Windows 7 deployment. Specifically, Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP) 2010 is now available and includes App-V 4.6, supporting Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 for RDS and Office 2010. The App-V support for Office 2010 means customers can do a one-touch deployment and do not have to wait for Office 2010 to deploy Windows 7.

    Additionally, Microsoft released the MED-V 1.0 SP1 Release Candidate, which creates managed virtual machines running previous versions of Windows and Internet Explorer so users can upgrade to Windows 7. The RTM version of MED-V 1.0 SP1 will be available in April, but customers can start taking advantage of the technology now.

    Along with these MDOP updates, Gavriella Schuster, General Manager of Windows Product Management, shared new information from Forrester around Windows 7’s Total Economic Impact (TEI), as well as details from IDC on Windows 7 deployment and how Microsoft partner Alinean’s  ROI calculator can help companies determine the type of return they can expect once they’ve deployed Windows 7. 

    Lastly, several customers and MVPs that have provided extensive feedback and you’ll see examples of this in the various Microsoft blogs, as well as the independent MVP blogs.
