How XenClient works
Citrix XenClient extends the benefits of client virtualization to corporate laptops and makes PCs more manageable, reliable, and secure. The solution is comprised of two technologies – XenClient and the XenClient Enterprise Synchronizer.
XenClient is a part of XenDesktop and its FlexCast delivery technology
Access virtual desktops anywhere, at any time
Citrix XenClient is a true Type-1 client hypervisor that runs on bare metal and provides high performance and security. XenClient lets users run multiple local virtual desktops simultaneously, side-by-side and in complete isolation. XenClient-powered laptop users can access their various virtual desktops anywhere, anytime—even while disconnected or experiencing a slow or intermittent network connection.
Centralized and secure remote desktop management
Synchronizer for XenClient enables PCs with XenClient Engine to download centrally managed virtual desktops and run them locally. Using Synchronizer, IT can centrally back up user data through a secure connection whenever the user connects to the Internet, define security policies, disable lost or stolen PCs, and restore a user’s virtual desktop on any XenClient-based device.
