Since we first started working together, Citrix and Nutanix have been laser-focused on simplifying VDI with pre-configured hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) that ensures a superior end user experience.

Today, we’re taking that partnership to new levels with Nutanix support for the latest version of XenServer, which enables us to jointly deliver maximum XenApp and XenDesktop performance.

This collaboration ensures customers gain the virtual GPU support, HDX user experience optimizations and security advantages included in XenServer 7.0 that provide an unmatched personal experience for anyone using XenApp and XenDesktop to access their apps and digital workspace. With XenServer deployed on Nutanix, IT doesn’t need to worry about the complexities of managing server virtualization, making secure app delivery deployments and management simple, seamless and easy.

We’ve been working with Nutanix for years to drive down the cost and complexity involved with deploying VDI and secure app delivery. Citrix was among the first partners to support Nutanix when they unveiled their Acropolis hypervisor, eliminating the “V-tax” for customers.

That’s why these preconfigured HCI systems that combine XenServer, XenApp and XenDesktop together offer such tremendous value, taking advantage of built-in features that provide superior graphics technologies, while incorporating automated updates, pro-active diagnostics and adding unique security features that are only possible when deploying the full Citrix software stack.

Stay tuned for more advancements and innovation from Citrix and Nutanix as we continue our work to deliver unmatched value for customers.
