Citrix and Intel Deliver Client Virtualization
In January 2009, Citrix announced a formal agreement to develop a Xen®-based bare-metal client hypervisor technology in conjunction with Intel. The result of the collaboration is Citrix® XenClient™, a local desktop virtualization platform that provides new levels of security and user flexibility for enterprise desktops.
XenClient enables IT administrators to deliver each employee's corporate desktop as a secure virtual machine (VM) that runs directly on that user's computer. XenClient ensures that corporate applications and data are completely isolated from personal data, greatly increasing security and simplifying regulatory compliance. New desktop deployments, hardware upgrades, and employee moves are less of a problem - IT administrators can quickly deliver a new desktop or move an existing one to any XenClient enabled device. And because the desktop and applications execute locally, users are free to work online or offline with all the rich performance and experience of a traditional computing environment.
