About Citrix XenClient
Citrix XenClient enables virtual desktops to go. Desktop virtualization is rapidly being adopted as the best way to deliver Windows® desktops to business users. Now, organizations can extend the benefits of desktop virtualization to mobile users, for new levels of portability and security. With XenClient, laptop users can take multiple virtual desktops with them and work from anywhere, anytime.
XenClient is a high-performance, bare-metal hypervisor that enables users to run multiple instances of an operating system simultaneously, side by side, and in complete isolation.
