About Glassware 2.0
Glassware 2.0 utilizes proprietary technology to achieve application virtualization without the requirement to virtualize the desktop. The Glassware 2.0 family of technologies is comprised of the Glassware 2.0 protocol, microvisor, containers, management, and clustering. Glassware 2.0 utilizes containers to run multiple instances of the same application on a Glassware 2.0-enabled server or appliance, and the ability to share binaries, libraries or the Glassware 2.0 Microvisor. Within these containers, Sphere 3D allows access to only the necessary elements of the operating system an application requires to run. This can include applications that utilize a wide array of Windows-based operating systems, such as Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, etc.
