DiscCloud for Leopard

DiscCloud has announced the release of its namesake Virtual Appliance app, a virtualization platform for Mac clients. The software runs through VMware, and allows PCs to function as desktop servers for Leopard clients. The client speciifically runs as a virtual machine on VMware Server and ESX-class products, allowing it to support numerous PC variants.

The Virtual Appliance additionally supports features such as automated backups, storage scalability, and desktop recovery; it is fully compliant with Apple licensing, and supports a continuously-available desktop. It costs $50, and requires both VMware Server and Mac OS X 10.5 or later.
