Imagine a world where your desktop virtualization roll-out is seamless with your existing desktop management systems, where you are able to deliver more use cases and support not just some but ALL user groups within your organization and where you can deliver cool new mobility features such as making it easier to use Windows apps on mobile devices. All of this can be accomplished today.
Citrix just released the XenDesktop 5.6 software for immediate download. This release with its new personal vDisk technology and Microsoft System Center 2012 integration make the design, deployment and ongoing management of virtual desktops seamless in existing operations for a smooth migration to Windows 7 and beyond. Task that can be accomplished today through enhancements to existing delivery models such as Pooled VDI with Personal vDisk.
Not only are these features popular within your IT department but also with management since it will drive costs lower as seen by new storage savings of up to 65% obtainable by combining pooled VDI and Personal vDisk and reduced IT management overhead with new single image management capabilities (formerly tech preview only) when using XenClient and Synchronizer.
And these features only add to the list of well-known benefits of desktop virtualization.
