(Via Bink.nu) You may recall that Microsoft has just acquired application virtualization vendor, Softricity, and they haven’t waited long to put their own stamp on Softricity’s Softgrid product line – Thincomputing.net Exclusive – New Softgrid Pricing Announced: Drastically Lower:
Thincomputing.net has received information on the new pricing Microsoft has put on the Softgrid products. This is really earth shattering!
Prices of the Softgrid products will be cut by as much as 85%
Follow the link for the list, but it’s tens of dollars per user.
This will make Softgrid affordable for everyone. I think this is a giant step towards application virtualization becoming a commodity.
The new prices are valid as of the first of August (so as of now) however the actual software will not be available until September the 29th.
This information still has to be announced officially but that’s just a matter of time.
