October 20, 2008 - Linden Lab, creator of the virtual world Second Life, announced that Rivers Run Red’s Immersive Workspaces 2.0, a comprehensive virtual world collaboration solution, is now available on the Second Life Grid.

 

The companies also announced a strategic partnership to sell and market each other’s products, either individually or jointly, and to explore developing and deploying additional offerings for Linden Lab’s growing base of enterprise customers.

With enterprise use of the Second Life Grid on the rise, organizations are investing more in their virtual environments and moving mission critical aspects of their businesses into the virtual world such as distance learning, product prototyping and collaboration. This migration has created demand for a solution that enables organizations to quickly implement, configure and populate a virtual world environment suitable for their needs.

 

Immersive Workspaces meets these needs by preconfiguring workspace options and wrapping the Second Life Grid solution in a Web-based framework rich with familiar tools and interfaces.

The Second Life Grid is a technology platform for constructing and experiencing virtual world environments and applications. A series of advanced content creation and transaction tools enable individuals and organizations of all sizes and types to build unique virtual environments or buy preconfigured solutions such as Immersive Workspaces. Organizations then have the option of a completely exclusive and secure experience, with no connectivity to the Second Life mainland, or a connected experience that enables employees to traverse the two domains without having to log on or off.

Immersive Workspaces enables organizations to construct custom virtual work environments - including meetings rooms and design centers - that can dramatically change the way they collaborate and communicate. A set of tightly integrated Web-based applications and the ability to seamlessly upload and integrate real world content.
