The Citrix XenDesktop
Citrix® XenDesktop™ offers a desktop and application virtualization solution for any user in any location. This includes Citrix FlexCast™ delivery technology that delivers every type of virtual desktop: hosted shared desktops, hosted virtual machine-based desktops, hosted blade PC desktops, local streamed desktops and local virtual machine-based desktops. This flexibility enables administrators to customize individual performance, security and mobility requirements.
The XenDesktop user experience rivals a local PC experience, including a local PC configured with multimedia, real-time collaboration, USB peripherals and 3D graphics. And the XenDesktop simplifies desktop lifecycle management. The desktop OS, applications and user settings are stored in master images that are easy to update and deploy.
