This week at Intel Developer Forum 13 (IDF 13) in San Francisco, Citrix is showcasing the latest cloud security and client virtualization solutions at two Intel sponsored pavilions. In the Intel Business Client Zone, Citrix will be offering several demonstrations of the market leading client virtualization technology, Citrix XenClient.
Citrix XenClient is a local virtual desktop solution that extends the performance, flexibility, and security of desktop virtualization to mobile users on laptops, Ultrabook™ devices, and 2 in 1 devices to improve security and simplify IT management. Citrix uses Intel technologies such as Intel® vPro™ technology and Intel® Core processors to optimize XenClient. Citrix will be featuring both XenClient Enterprise and XenClient XT optimized on Intel technology such as new “Haswell” 4th generation Intel Core vPro processors in the Business Client Zone.
Citrix XenClient Enterprise, included as a part of XenDesktop Enterprise and Platinum, is a client virtualization solution that extends the benefits of desktop virtualization to corporate laptops and makes PCs more manageable, reliable and secure. It enables users to work from anywhere, anytime – even on intermittent or inconsistent networks – while providing IT with security, reliability, and control over computing environments. XenClient Enterprise does this by centrally securing and managing virtual desktops running on a bare metal, Type-1 client hypervisor. Citrix will be showcasing XenClient Enterprise 5 running on the Haswell 4th Generation Intel Core vPro platform.
Citrix XenClient XT is an advanced client virtualization solution that leverages Intel technology by providing high assurance isolation and security for highly regulated environments, such as those found in the public sector, finance, and energy industries. Developed in conjunction with Intel and the Air Force Research Labs (AFRL), XenClient XT is a flexible solution that provides high levels of security, isolation, performance, and auditability with a hardened Type-1 client hypervisor, hardware-assisted security, and an open, extensible platform. Citrix will showcase XenClient XT running on the Haswell 4th Generation Intel Core vPro platform as well as nested virtualization enabled by XenClient XT, which allows hosting of multiple virtual machine monitors (VMMs) on a single Haswell system.
