Brian Madden: Softricity announces SoftGrid 3.0: Is this the future of server-based computing?

Brian Madden: Softricity announces SoftGrid 3.0: Is this the future of server-based computing?: "Softgrid's core philosophy can be summed up like this: What's the best way to use this application at this moment? The company recognizes the fact that while centralized control is good, centralized processing is not always needed. To that end, SoftGrid 3.0 supports offline streaming which allows laptop users to continue to use SoftGrid applications even when they're offline. This fits into many other vendors' utility computing messages and allows companies to have one application management solution. Use SoftGrid for end-to-end management of applications—whether users are connected to Terminal Servers or using disconnected laptops.
Virtual servers, virtual storage, and virtual networks have been around for a few years. Softricity's SoftGrid 3.0 adds virtual applications."

Congrats to Bill Corrigan and the rest of the Softricity team on a major milestone.
