Microsoft today delivered Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization (MED-V) 2.0.

The MED-V 2.0 product is desktop virtualization software based on technology Microsoft bought from Kidaro in 2008. MED-V is one of a number of migration tools that Microsoft offers exclusively to Microsoft Software Assurance volume-license customers as part of the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP).

Microsoft has been touting MED-V as a Windows 7 migration tool that allows users to "retain access to legacy lines of business applications that require Windows XP."

Microsoft has been testing MED-V 2.0 since last summer. Company officials have said there would be a number of new features and updates in the MED-V2.0 release, including:

  • No dedicated infrastructure required
  • Streamlined sign-on to MED-V workspaces
  • More options for Internet Explorer redirection
  • USB device sharing
  • My Documents, Desktop and network printer redirection

You can access MED-V 2.0 as part of MDOP 2011 through the Microsoft Volume Licensing, MSDN or TechNet.

Microsoft also delivered App-V SP1 today.
