In April this year, virtualization.info announced that Quest started a partnership with MokaFive to bundle its client virtualizations solution, with its own VDI connection broker software, calling it the vWorkspace MokaFive Suite.
The combined solution is capable of providing a local Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solution, which will be able to manage, secure and deliver virtual desktops to Windows and Mac. With this combined solution Quest now has the opportunity to support client based VMs running on top of VMware Player or Fusion, Virtual Box or Parallels Workstation, or even the MokaFive BareMetal hypervisor which MokaFive released in May this year.
Now version 3.7 has been released, introducing the following new features:
- Improved Installer and Configuration Wizard, automatically installs all required components and performs extensive error checking to prevent misconfiguration. Also includes a wizard to walk the administrator through all the required configuration steps including license activation, AD integration, manager (user) account setup and client pack upload.
- Support for migration to Microsoft SQL Server.
- Improved Guest Tools Installation on Windows 7, on Windows 7, all of the prerequisite software which includes VMware Tools, MokaFive Guest Tools, MokaFive Printing Tools and RedMon are automatically installed
- Revamped Documentation
- The Player is now officially supported on Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion).
- Juniper VPN Support
- Fast Authentication, using the off-line Player log-on process.
- BareMetal Player Improvements – Support for Intel SandyBridge processors and support for multi-core processors utilizing up to 8 cores (if available)
