Extending the Benefits of Desktop Virtualization to Mobile Laptop Users
Desktop virtualization is attractive to organizations of all types and sizes worldwide because of its many compelling benefits. Delivering desktops as a service accelerates their deployment and significantly reduces operating costs while simultaneously strengthening data security and enhancing IT responsiveness to rapidly changing business conditions. One issue that arises, however, is the gap in coverage that exists for mobile laptop users, particularly those who need to continue working even when disconnected from the network.
With the introduction of Citrix® XenClient™, this gap no longer exists. XenClient, an innovative, client-side alternative for delivering virtual desktops, allows IT to extend the benefits of desktop virtualization to laptop users whether or not online. Support for multiple virtual machines, robust synchronization capabilities and a centralized delivery model also mean that users get the flexibility they want—including the ability to install personal applications and data, and IT gets the control, security and administrative efficiency it needs.
