Secure remote desktop management
XenClient is a Type-1 client hypervisor that delivers true bare metal performance and secure isolation when allowing multiple virtual desktops to run locally on computers. Running directly on the hardware and without the need for an underlying host OS, XenClient provides better performance, stability, and security than other products.
High performance without compromise
Unlike XenClient, legacy Type-2 virtual machine manager (VMM) products are incapable of providing the same level of benefits as XenClient offers due to the presence of an underlying host OS that separates it from the hardware layer. The basic architecture of Type-2 products requires additional processing power, memory, and storage resources due to the reliance on the host OS to translate VM requests down to the hardware layer.
XenClient is an infinitely better performing solution that fits the needs of any organization without the drawbacks inherent in Type-2 products.
Strict isolation for virtual machines
Since Type-2 virtualization products sit on top of a host OS that separates it from the underlying hardware layer, the host OS is required to translate and pass virtual machine instructions and operations down to the hardware. As such, Type-2 products are less stable and susceptible to security weaknesses of the underlying OS.
Without the need for an underlying host OS, XenClient has significantly improved stability and security. XenClient's virtual machines are securely isolated. Any communication channels to the backend management server are fully encrypted and secure.
