Windows 7: vmware ace?

vmware ace?

Just curious if anyone knows how this works. Does it allow you to create a portable VM that is just a exe file? this would be awesome since there would be no install required on the machine running it.

Haven't used it myself. Sounds handy though.

  • ACE 2 Management Server: Use the new ACE 2 Management Server to manage and control ACE clients from a central location. The ACE 2 Management Server has the ability to dynamically update control and security policies, including the ability to activate / deactivate ACE clients.
  • Pocket ACE: Administrators can now bundle and deploy ACE packages directly on a portable USB media device such as a flash memory stick, portable hard drive or even an Apple iPod. End users can operate their ACE client machines directly from the USB device for unparalleled mobility and flexibility.
  • Enhanced security capabilities: ACE 2.5 offers enhancements to policy and package settings that make it easier to secure and manage ACE clients. Flexible, granular controls for device and network access enable administrators to specify exactly which machines or subnets an ACE client may access. What’s more, ACE 2.5 uses a FIPS-validated 128-bit AES algorithm to prevent unauthorized access to data stored on ACE clients.

I read all that on their site, just hoping someone would explain it better than all that marketing/corporate talk. They don't go too far into the specifics, such as if the Pocket ACE runs off just a EXE file

I'll see about trying to find some videos on youtube about it
