Citrix: We Choose to Go to the Moon!
We choose to go the moon … and so do 500 Citrix XenApp users in a 1U platform!
Fifty-five years ago John F. Kennedy set one of the greatest technology challenges mankind had ever known: to land a man on the moon and bring him safely back. During his 1961 speech at Rice University he said “We choose to go to the moon… to do things not because they are easy, but because they are hard.”
That guiding principle is what the HPE Moonshot and Citrix engineering teams have followed since day one.
Challenging the status quo, like what blade servers did to traditional servers, has resulted in great solution engineering from the HPE Moonshot team. Since the first release of the platform I’ve been fortunate enough to be involved with some of the best engineering minds at HPE while designing the Citrix software stack for each or our solution releases. From the first XenDesktop bare-metal graphics Moonshot solution to the latest XenApp with Intel Iris Pro bare-metal graphics, the engineering relationship between Citrix and the Moonshot teams have been amazing.
Similar to NASA’s Project Orion spacecraft, which has a purpose to take humans into space further than they ever have before, so does the latest HPE Moonshot system also have a purpose to provide Hypercompute scale for Citrix XenApp further than ever before. Let’s take a look into the next HPE Moonshot platform.
