Creating and Deploying New VMs with Citrix XenClient is a Piece of Cake


“Its [XenClient’s] local client hypervisor handled disconnected and poorly-connected scenarios flawlessly”

~ Michael Otey, Windows IT Pro

That was used to describe XenClient Enterprise in a recent review by Michael Otey of Windows IT Pro, who found that XenClient “makes centralized management of mobile devices [laptops] easy” and that it allowed users to “easily migrate to new devices within minutes.” XenClient is a client virtualization solution that extends the benefits of XenDesktop to corporate laptops and makes PCs more manageable, reliable, and secure. It allows end users to run virtual desktops locally on the hottest new laptops, PCs, and Ultrabooks while giving IT central control and security.

The Citrix Synchronizer management server centrally creates, deploys, and manages Windows VMs that are downloaded and run locally by XenClient-enabled devices. These VMs are then synchronized in the background with the golden image that resides on the Synchronizer server to receive the latest patches and updates from IT when users are connected to the network. After testing how the Synchronizer enables IT“to easily deploy new desktops and to manage desktop images” on XenClient-enabled devices,Michael commented that “creating and deploying new virtual machines with XenClient is a piece of cake.”
