Microsoft to Acquire Virtualization Company Kidaro

NYTimes report: "Microsoft Corp said on Wednesday it agreed to acquire virtualization technology firm Kidaro for an undisclosed sum.

Microsoft said Kidaro's technology will be incorporated into its desktop virtualization product, which allows companies to deliver over an Internet network a "virtual" computer desktop different from the software running on the local machine.

Desktop virtualization allows computers to run more than one operating system on a computer at one time and it also allows users to run applications that may not be compatible with the operating system on the local machine".

The story is too old to be commented.
