Pc Virtual Software Appliance

A PC virtual software appliance runs in a dedicated PC partition or on a virtual machine that loads before any user OS, and provides one application or function without the complexity of a full PC OS. By adopting an appliance approach, enterprises can deliver individual functions (such as firewalls, asset management, TV recorders and media players) as separate modules that run alongside, rather than on top of (or from within), a standard PC OS.
