We are very excited to be part of Cisco Live in San Diego this week. The excitement comes from several joint activities we have lined up during the week, especially centered on mobility solutions and cloud services that both companies have to offer.

Cisco and Citrix are better together because they are both committed to collaboration and provide joint offerings in these key areas:

  • Creating data center success with Cisco Unified Computing Services and Citrix XenDesktop and Citrix XenServer
  • Optimizing Citrix HDX traffic on Cisco Wide Area Application Services whether voice and video, and/or data and applications
  • Enabling Cisco devices with Citrix Receiver whether embedded within the device or available via AppHQ, Cisco’s enterprise application store to deliver a superior rich media experience to all Cisco endpoint devices
  • Collaborating on desktop-as-a-service and other virtual desktop-based solutions that can enable public and private clouds for enterprise customers and service providers

The landscape for desktop virtualization is continually evolving, but the road to Desktop Transformation just got a little smoother with joint commitment from both Cisco and Citrix in creating the next generation workspace.

So this week if you are in San Diego for Cisco Live, stop by booth #734 to find out more on our joint collaboration.  Also, we’ve a great customer break out session with Mike Stanley from the University of Tennessee. The University of Tennessee at Knoxville launched “Apps@UT,” a program implementing Citrix XenDesktop that runs on a Cisco and NetApp infrastructure to deliver full Windows desktops and applications as an on-demand service. Apps@UT will give UT Knoxville’s more than 27,000 students and staff anytime access to virtual desktops, applications, personal files and network resources. The session is Wednesday, June 13 at 4:00 PM (session ID BRKPCS-4381).

We invite you to come check out Citrix demos, attend breakouts and theater presentations, and while you are there also enter into drawing to win an iPad.
