MokaFive Announces Adds BareMetal option to Local VDI solution

MokaFive has announced the general availability of their BareMetal deployment option. This is in addition to the ability to run a virtual desktop in a ‘type 2’ manner or from USB storage. This gives MokaFive (and the vWorkspace MokaFive suite) a unique position in the market to deliver multiple client side virtualization options.

Today, MokaFive known for its innovative virtual-desktop solutions, announced the release of MokaFive BareMetal, a client hypervisor that installs directly onto the bare metal of users’ machines – providing unparalleled performance, iron-clad security, and control over every aspect of the desktop software stack. It is the first product on the market to provide this functionality as part of a complete end-to-end desktop-management solution. BareMetal was designed for maximum control, performance, and security. It accommodates the broadest range of hardware of any other bare-metal hypervisor solution on the market, while requiring a mere 2GB of RAM and a 64-bit compatible CPU.  MokaFive Suite already included the ability to run a secure, managed virtual desktop on top of Macs, PCs, desktops and laptops -- whether online or offline. With BareMetal, that capability is extended to allow the virtual desktop to be installed directly on the hardware’s bare metal, circumventing the need for a host OS and enabling management of any PC in the enterprise through a single console.

  1. Has anyone tried this yet – is it really a type-1 hypervisor or is it just Linux + VirtualBox packaged with Mokafive branding?
