Unique features to meet highest levels of isolation and security
Bare metal hypervisor
A Type-1 bare metal virtualization architecture scales to run large numbers of virtual desktops simultaneously on a single computer—with a user experience identical to a physical desktop or laptop, even for the most demanding workloads.
Hardened client hypervisor
Multiple virtual desktops can run different security domains on the same system with complete secure isolation for each virtual desktop. XenClient XT protects against attacks to the hypervisor and supporting components.
Security and isolation rooted in Intel vPro hardware allow you to boot to a trusted and verified platform every time using Intel Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT) technology. High-performance disk encryption, accelerated with Intel AES-NI, protects without impairing the user experience. Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O enables secure direct access to 3D graphics for hardware acceleration to support multimedia and other graphics-intensive applications.
Network isolation service VMs
High levels of network isolation both on and off the box protect critical elements of the platform from network-based attacks. Encapsulated, unique, encrypted network streams for each virtual desktop prevent problems from spreading and allow the use of a single physical network connection to the desktop. Virtual desktops can only connect to authorized backend infrastructure and VPN clients are completely isolated from cyber-attacks.
Enhanced policy granularity
XenClient XT helps you protect your environment by providing users with a known-trusted Windows virtual desktop on every boot and automatically purges user changes to the system on logoff. The solution also enables high-performance disk encryption without backend management servers and provides granular controls for data movement and environment isolation.
An independent management synchronizer performs updates and controls VM policies via a remote connection. Called Synchronizer XT, it has a User Interface or Command Line Interface and can run on most Linux distributions.
HDX user experience
XenClient XT improves user acceptance of a virtualized local VM solution by offering near-native performance even for intensive 3D applications and multiple high-definition video streams. The most demanding workloads can run as a local virtual desktop with no discernible difference from the "normal" user experience.
