- XenClient Engine – XenClient is a true Type-1 client hypervisor that runs on bare metal and provides high performance and security, letting users run a centrally managed virtual desktop and lets power users run multiple local virtual desktops simultaneously, side-by-side and in complete isolation. Users of XenClient-powered devices can access their various virtual desktops anywhere, anytime—even while disconnected from the network.
- XenClient Synchronizer – Synchronizer for XenClient enables IT to centrally manage the virtual desktops running locally on PCs as well as manage the devices themselves. Using Synchronizer, IT can centrally back up user data through a secure connection whenever the user connects to the Internet, define security policies, disable lost or stolen PCs, and restore a user’s virtual desktop on any XenClient-based device.
Mitch Parker, Vice President and General Manager, Client Virtualization at Citrix“With this new level of integration with XenDesktop and seamless personalization and synchronization across devices, XenClient further enables enterprises to go mobile. Users have the ability to work from any device, even offline with their laptops, and IT achieves greater security and manageability.” Chuck Miller, IT Director, Town of Lincoln, Mass. “We’re very excited about XenClient 5 with enhanced integration of XenDesktop technologies. XenClient had already made a dramatic positive impact on the way we centrally manage and control PCs, and the new personal virtual disk and unified profile management capabilities will allow us to deliver greater levels of personalization while maintaining that centralized control. We see XenClient as a critical pillar within XenDesktop – for providing local virtual desktops that are always available regardless of the state of the network connection or even when there’s no network at all.” Ames Prentiss, CEO of IVG Hospitals “Historically, XenClient has enabled us to centrally control all of our PCs, resulting in a reliable, secure, and stable computing experience for our users. The new capabilities XenClient 5 offers with enhanced personalization and integration with XenDesktop will make the solution much more flexible for end users while retaining all of the benefits of centralized management and control.” Availability XenClient 5 will be available for download August 12 from the Citrix website. XenClient 5 is also included in XenDesktop Enterprise and Platinum editions. Customers that are current on XenDesktop Subscription Advantage can download XenClient 5 for free as a benefit of their Subscription Advantage membership. Customers interested in a trial of XenClient for delivering local virtual desktops to mobile laptops and PCs can download XenClient Enterprise 5 and create a test environment for up to 10 users.
