WALTHAM, Mass. -- Ardence Inc., the leader in developing software platforms for the on-demand world, today announced the release of Version 4.0 of the Ardence Software-Streaming Platform, which includes sweeping manageability, scalability and reliability improvements for its global desktop and data center customers.
Ardence pointed out that two enhancements in particular Common-Image functionality and a comprehensive architectural redesign of the Platform will make it easier for customers to transition from their current Windows® operating system environment to Windows Vista when the new Microsoft operating system becomes available later this year.
Listening to our customers and channel partners, it was very clear that additional scalability was essential in order to accelerate adoption of our Platform in the enterprise. Weve delivered that scalability with this latest version. Also, in their ongoing drive to manage as few images as possible, customers wanted the ability to stream an identical operating system/application image on-demand from the network to desktops and servers, irrespective of any hardware differences. With Common Image that breakthrough capability is now possible, said Richard J. Davis, Ardence Chairman, CEO and President.
