VMware: Watch Citrix XenDesktops Provision Faster Than Ever Imagined

Have you ever wished you could provision personalized Citrix XenDesktops at the speed of stateless ones?

We have been working hard to bring VMware Instant Clone capabilities to XenDesktops.

Come see us at Citrix Synergy—booth #520G—as we demonstrate this capability as a technology preview called Project Orion.

Instant Clone technology works by “forking” a running parent virtual machine (VM) into cloned virtual desktops. These cloned virtual desktops share the disk and memory of the parent VM, which helps eliminate boot storms and reduced IOPS in virtual desktop environments. A patented technology that puts virtual desktops through a short customization period that does not require the rebooting of systems for the desktops to obtain their uniqueness, such as IP address or joining the domain. They can be powered on and ready to go once a user is entitled for access.

Just-in-time Delivery for XenDesktops with VMware

Instant Clone was one of the most exciting technologies introduced in VMware Horizon 7 earlier this year. This breakthrough technology allows administrators to clone and deploy VMware Horizon virtual desktops at a rapid pace—nearly one clone per second on average. This is great, because provisioning desktops can be the most time-consuming aspect of managing a VDI environment. Creating a desktop pool can be a lengthy process that includes cloning, reconfiguring, customization and power on/off cycles that can take hours. With Instant Clone technology, the time involved is reduced to minutes, eliminating unnecessary steps needed to deliver desktops. Combined with VMware App Volumes for dynamic application delivery and VMware User Environment Manager for personalization, desktop administrators can have just-in-time desktops.
