Running Applications Sandboxed using MED-V RRS feed

  • Question

  • If I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 enterprise, with either thin clients running Citrix or laptops running Windows 8, is it possible to present a sandboxed application to the hosted or local desktop using MED-V?

    The requirement is that we have a specific application (SAS and SPSS) that require execution of scripts, local code and use of the command line which is typically prevented using group policy on the corporate desktop.  The risks are deemed too high to relax these policies for users of these applications.  I would like to be able to deliver a 'sandbox' in which the application can run and access to the command line can be given.  The command line is used for accessing local data set tools (local to that machine).

    I believe MED-V may be able to offer this - can anyone advise?

  • Yes it can but MED-V is client-hosted which means you will have to be running Windows 7. Can't you just create the sandbox using Windows 8 Client Hyper-V?
