In the past 18 months, Citrix has invested in several acquisitions and industry initiatives designed to expand use cases for desktop and application virtualization to accelerate customer transformation to cloud services and enable widespread adoption by reducing virtual desktop acquisition and operational costs.
- Simple, Affordable VDI – VDI-in-a-Box 5.2 tech preview continues to deliver simplicity and empowering SMBs and enterprise departments to roll out affordable and powerful VDI-based desktops. Building on the VDI-in-a-Box 5.1 release, which introduced personal vDisk technology, the VDI-in-a-Box 5.2 tech preview will demonstrate optimizations for Microsoft Lync, support for the latest hypervisor technologies including Microsoft Windows 2012 HyperV, Citrix XenServer 6.1 and VMware vSphere 5.1. The tech preview will support the Citrix Storefront for unified access to any Citrix CloudGateway delivered service.
- Extending Mobile Desktop Virtualization – Coming quickly on the heels of the Virtual Computer acquisition earlier this year, the XenClient Enterprise 4.5 tech preview will be the second Citrix release of the combined XenClient hypervisor and Virtual Computer management system. XenClient extends Citrix XenDesktop FlexCast to include the management of physical PCs and secures mobile laptops for disconnected operation. The tech preview includes support for third-generation Intel Core processors, Microsoft Windows 8, and ultrabooks.
- Speeding Migration to Windows 7 and Beyond – Supporting the upcoming general availability of new Microsoft technologies, the next release of Citrix AppDNA application lifecycle management software includes early access features for application testing on Windows 8, Internet Explorer 10 and Windows Server 2012.
- Driving Down Costs with HDX System-on-Chip Architecture – After only one year since the introduction of this initiative to drive new low-cost and innovative devices based on a HDX SoC architecture, several new devices from Atrust, Centerm, Fujitsu, HP, IGEL, LG and NComputing will be on display at Citrix Synergy.
