Citrix Pulls the Plug on XenClient
XenClient has been taken off of life support by Citrix.
In a short, muddled announcement, Citrix said that XenClient has "officially started into the End-of-Life process." The last day that it will be for sale is next week — Oct. 1 — with End-of-Maintenance scheduled just a few months later, on Dec. 12, 2015. End-of-Life is a year later, Dec. 12, 2016.
XenClient is a Type 1, or bare-metal, hypervisor based on the Xen hypervisor. Citrix envisioned it as a part of its XenDesktop virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) family, enabling corporate laptop users to have on- and offline access to different operating systems and apps over slow, intermittent or absent Internet connections. Included as part of Xen Desktop Enterprise and Platinum Editions, XenClient never stood out in the market and failed to gain traction.
