Past, Present, and Future of XenApp and XenDesktop
In this special edition of the BrianMadden.com podcast, Brian Madden and Gabe Knuth talk about the evolution of data and cloud services, the renewed focus on delivering applications over desktops and what Citrix is doing both with today's products and the upcoming Citrix Workspace Services.
Sridhar Mullapudi and Rakesh Narasimhan join the podcast as part of their effort to further engage the entire Citrix community and stress the need for customer feedback on all their products, specifically XenApp and XenDesktop, and speak about how they are working to integrate the old desktop thought processes with the new ones.
This podcast spends a lot of time talking about how Merlin and Arthur (the current and upcoming versions of XenDesktop/XenApp, respectively) fit into the evolution of Windows desktops, and about how the focus is on integration with existing and future systems. The gang also talks about some history, the challenges of moving from IMA to FMA, and a little bit about what's in store for Citrix Workspace Services.
