Virtual machines (VM) and virtual appliances (VA) have successfully transformed data center operations. Now, AppZero Virtual Application Appliances (VAA) extend that transformation to server applications - Linux, Unix, and Windows. For Independent Software Vendors, AppZero changes the economics of pre-sales proof-of-concept and post-sales implementation. AppZero's instantaneous provisioning of applications as services can be the tipping point for ISVs looking to make the move to SaaS. Incremental revenue and substantial cost reduction combine to form a compelling argument for VAA adoption.

AppZero's approach to server-side application virtualization can revolutionize the economics of an ISV's business model in three specific areas:

  • ISVs can slash the time and costs associated with release engineering
  • ISVs can dramatically cut the effort needed to deliver customer-facing functions such as pre-sales proof of concept engagements and post-sales implementation services.
  • Incremental revenues through:
    - Increased POC win rate
    - Risk-free ease of customer upgrades and add-ons
    - New customer stream in Cloud/Saas model

    AppZero offers ISVs extreme simplicity in application provisioning and deployment. The secret ingredient is the complete absence of any operating system component in AppZero's VAA's.
