The XenDesktop product is the beginning of Citrix's new method for delivering applications to the desktop.
Citrix Systems is looking to combine its traditional application delivery technology with its recently developed virtualization offerings into a new way to deliver applications to a fleet of corporate desktops, whether in the main office or at a remote site.
At the company's Synergy user conference, which starts May 20 in Houston, Citrix will offer additional pieces for its Delivery Center, a new set of technologies for delivering desktop images and applications from the data center to the PC. The company first detailed some of the offerings behind Delivery Center in April.
For months, Citrix has talked about its XenDesktop product, which will allow an IT department to host a virtual desktop within the data center. The product, which officially debuts May 20, is an important piece of the company's efforts to build out a new virtualized infrastructure to compete with the likes of VMware and its Virtual Desktop Infrastructure suite.
