Citrix Systems announces new release of Citrix XenClient
Aug 19, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Citrix Systems, Inc., a provider of server and desktop virtualization, networking, software-as-a-service, and cloud computing technologies, has announced a new release of Citrix XenClient, executing on the company's enterprise mobility strategy.
By leveraging the powerful personalization and profile management technology in Citrix XenDesktop, XenClient 5 allows mobile workers to seamlessly work across laptops, tablets and smartphones using their virtual desktop hosted or local along with their files and documents. XenDesktop with XenClient and Citrix ShareFile give mobile workers the personalized virtual desktop experience and data synchronization they want, where they want it, all with the centralized control IT needs, the company said.
XenClient 5 integrates Personal vDisk technology already in XenDesktop to enable personalization, and integrates with ShareFile to sync data across local and hosted virtual desktop environments. Users will have a seamless and personalized user experience, and IT gains new levels of security, reliability and control with simplified desktop management. The integration of Personal vDisk technology is built into the two core components of XenClient: XenClient Engine and XenClient Synchronizer.
XenClient is a true Type-1 client hypervisor that runs on bare metal and provides high performance and security, letting users run a centrally managed virtual desktop and lets power users run multiple local virtual desktops simultaneously, side-by-side and in complete isolation. Users of XenClient-powered devices can access their various virtual desktops anywhere, anytime even while disconnected from the network, the company added.
Synchronizer for XenClient enables IT to centrally manage the virtual desktops running locally on PCs as well as manage the devices themselves. Using Synchronizer, IT can centrally back up user data through a secure connection whenever the user connects to the Internet, define security policies, disable lost or stolen PCs, and restore a users virtual desktop on any XenClient-based device.
"With this new level of integration with XenDesktop and seamless personalization and synchronization across devices, XenClient further enables enterprises to go mobile. Users have the ability to work from any device, even offline with their laptops, and IT achieves greater security and manageability," said Mitch Parker, vice president and general manager, Client Virtualization, Citrix.
