Citrix XenClient: Client-Side Hypervisor Virtualization Podcast with Citrix and Intel – Episode 95


In episode 95, Douglas Brown interviews Peter Blum, Director Product Management and Marketing for Citrix XenClient at Citrix and Thomas James, Business Development Manager in the Digital Office Platform Division at Intel.   Douglas, Peter, and Thomas discuss the upcoming Citrix XenClient client-side hypervisor.

About Citrix XenClient

In January 2009, Citrix announced a formal agreement to develop a Xen-base, Type-1 bare metal client hypervisor technology in conjunction with Intel. The results of the joint collaboration will be the delivery of Citrix XenClient™, a local desktop virtualization platform providing new levels of security, management, and user flexibility for enterprise desktops. Citrix XenClient will be optimized for Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT), Intel Trusted Execution Technology (TXT), and other features of Intel vPro™ technology. Citrix is integrating these technologies into their local desktop virtualization platform, providing customers the benefit of desktop virtualization solutions leveraging the virtualization and management capabilities of vPro-based desktop and laptop PCs.

XenClient will deliver key benefits to mobile/offline users including:

• Extend the benefits of hosted virtual desktops to remote, mobile, and offline users
• Allow running isolated business and personal desktops on the same device
• Provide a high definition user experience with bare-metal virtualization performance
• Allow IT to lockdown business desktops to reduce desktop management TCO
• Simplify laptop provisioning and reduce the burden of managing multiple OS images
• Provide a secure mobile computing platform with backup, policy control, and remote kill
• Provide faster recovery from field laptop failures or loss/theft

Citrix has developed a showcase for XenClient within the Citrix Community. The XenClient Underground features a variety of information, including videos, demonstrations, discussions, beta information and more.
