The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2016-04-12T01:32:14Z Porter Davis builds a new way to work with Citrix 2016-04-12T01:32:14Z porter-davis-builds-a-new-way-to-work-with-citrix MELBOURNE, Australia, 12th April 2016 – As businesses in Australia increasingly evaluate traditional working practices to improve organisational efficiencies and boost employee productivity, Citrix Systems today announced Victoria-based builder Porter Davis has streamlined its six regional offices into one central location through an activity-based-working model built on Citrix technology.   Faced with the prospect of relocating 500 employees from across Victoria, Porter Davis needed a solution mitigating the potential business impact this could create. It also needed to ensure continued productivity by empowering employees to work remotely and securely access corporate data regardless of location and device. Additionally, ahead of its transition to the activity-based-working model Porter Davis wanted to reduce its carbon footprint and adopt a “paper light” strategy, helping boost productivity in-house and decrease associated overheads.   “Creating the right digital environment was critical to the success of Porter Davis’ transition to an activity-based-working model. We were fully aware of the range of challenges we might face along our journey, so were focused on delivering a platform assuring employee concerns and allowing us to work like business as usual through the change and into the future,” said Warren Arbaitman, Group IT Manager, Porter Davis.   Using Citrix XenDesktop and Citrix XenApp, Porter Davis dissolved the concept of fixed desks and deployed a virtual environment providing its workforce with secure and seamless access to the corporate network from outside traditional office boundaries. As part of the transition, Porter Davis provided employees with devices allowing them to work remotely or during the daily commute, including laptops, tablet computers and smartphones.   Extending the digital transformation to the business front-end and to deliver on its green initiatives, Porter Davis eliminated paper-based customer communications by deploying file sync and sharing solution Citrix ShareFile, and the electronic signature platform Citrix RightSignature. The company is now able to track and respond to customer engagements in real-time to ensure needs are rapidly communicated and actioned, as well as reducing the risks associated with handling sensitive materials.   “Through the Citrix technology deployed, we have been able to boost employee productivity and retention – both areas at risk if our relocation was not a success. Similarly, in addition to reducing overheads our paperless strategy has improved reporting processes, as well as simplified and accelerated the sharing of information internally and externally. The project has fundamentally changed the way we operate as a business for the better, and we’re incredibly satisfied with the results,” added Warren Arbaitman.   “The challenges faced by Porter Davis are common among many Australian businesses today – achieving more with less, and accommodating a new way of work. It’s been great to see the company’s digital environment deliver immediate results. But what’s even more exciting is that as millennials increasingly enter the workforce demanding to work remotely and across locations, Porter Davis is well set to accommodate this to ensure the company can attract the best talent to add to its already innovative and extensive range of services,” said Safi Obeidullah, Director of Technical Services, Citrix ANZ.   For more information about how Citrix Systems can help you work and live better visit: www.citrix.com.au *** About Citrix Citrix (NASDAQ:CTXS) is leading the transition to software-defining the workplace, uniting virtualization, mobility management, networking and SaaS solutions to enable new ways for businesses and people to work better.

By providing a comprehensive, extended free trial of its online meeting, remote access, collaboration and support solutions, Citrix is providing the technology to support the next generation of telework. The trial is available for a limited period at www.mobilework.com.au/trial. Recent Citrix research has indicated that, by 2013, 93 per cent of organisations will offer a flexible work policy[1], while by 2020 over a third of Australians will no longer work in a traditional office.[2] “There are a lot of ways to say it - whether it’s teleworking, workshifting or notdesking – but the crux of the matter is that, driven by technology, Australians are changing the way they work. Work is no longer a place we go, it is a thing we do. Telework allows companies to reduce their costs while employees improve productivity and flexibility. It’s a win-win situation,” said Seamus King, Country Director for Online Services, Citrix Australia and New Zealand. “We’re so confident that Australia can benefit from cloud commuting and workshifting, we’ve made a whole range of our most popular telecommuting software solutions available to use for 30 days in support of National Telework Week. With this challenge, there’s really no excuse not to experience the benefits of telework.” Work Better. Live Better. A thought leader and advocate for remote work and mobile workstyles, Citrix has helped its employees and customers experience the productivity and personal benefits of remote work by providing secure and reliable cloud-based remote access, collaboration, project management and IT support services that enable efficient and productive remote work from any location. Last month at its Synergy Barcelona customer conference, Citrix continued this commitment by unveiling the next phase of its strategy to enable the mobile enterprise, introducing new services to provide today’s mobile workforce access to data, apps and services to work the way they want – with anyone, from any location, on any device. The recent Citrix Workplace of the Future report underscores the necessity for Australian organisations to embrace mobile workstyles and flexible work. The study found the Australian workplace of the future will provide fewer than seven desks for every ten office workers, with each person accessing the corporate IT network from an average of six different computing devices – making the ability to work remotely essential. The study also revealed benefits such as organisational improvements in attracting and retaining the very best people by increasing flexibility and improving work-life balance. Meanwhile, employees benefit from increased personal productivity (70 per cent), less commuting time (61 per cent), more flexibility (59 per cent), and a better work-life balance (49 per cent).

[1] Citrix Global Workshifting Index, March 2012 [2] Citrix Workplace of the Future report, September 2012 Citrix service partners see SME boom in desktop virtualisation 2012-06-13T01:15:00Z citrix-service-partners-see-sme-boom-in-desktop-virtualisation SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – June 13, 2012 – Service providers are reaping the rewards of a boom in desktop virtualisation adoption amongst smaller businesses, according to Citrix Systems. According to one provider, uptake of desktop services is seeing user revenues more than double every three months. “We have seen a growth in desktop as a service of more than 400% over the past six months, and we’ve only just started scratching the surface” said Gavin Evans, owner of ITEasy. “Economic uncertainty is affecting small and medium enterprises wanting to update old infrastructure, meaning the financial certainty they need is best provided through per user/per month services.” Neville James, Channel Director for Australia and New Zealand, Citrix, believes smaller enterprises are taking advantage of reasonable price points and beneficial licensing to implement solutions more traditionally used by large organisations. “The ability to implement desktops-as-a-service through reliable service providers like ITEasy guarantees customers service availability and quality without the need for costly upfront backend investment”, said James. Gavin Evans continued, “While some organisations are seeing cost savings, the biggest benefits our customers are citing to us are around mobility alongside security. The technology’s ability to provide compliance, corporate security and probity of data is essential. We feel we’re at the tipping point for desktops-as-a-service in Australia.” Citrix XenApp has in particular seen an uptake in adoption, and has been a leading reason why Citrix income from desktop services to service providers has more than tripled in the last year. Citrix XenApp is one of a number of desktop delivery models available under a single XenDesktop license, a system Citrix calls FlexCast. “Through our competitive service provider licensing schemes, utilising Microsoft’s service provider licensing agreement, we believe that ever-smaller companies will begin to see the benefits of desktops as a service, such as improved mobility, business continuity and desktop performance,” concluded James.

(NASDAQ:CTXS) today announced that Mater Health Services has implemented an end-to-end virtualisation solution to provide quicker and more reliable access to electronic medical records, business applications and patient data for its healthcare practitioners. Queensland-based Mater Health Services, a not-for-profit provider of healthcare services, will implement Citrix XenDesktop, XenServer and NetScaler enabling its clinicians to work more effectively anywhere, any time and on any device. The Citrix XenDesktop is integral to Mater’s Smart Hospital Strategy for pervasive, clinical information technology. The Citrix XenDesktop also assists in addressing specific healthcare sector device compliance and regulatory requirements. Standard PCs are unsuitable for use in intensive care areas such as the neo-natal ward, operating theatres and “cardiac protected electrical areas” due to their high current leakage and so, as a result, clients running XenDesktop were a cost effective compliant solution. Prior to deploying Citrix, Mater had trialled other desktop virtualisation solutions for eighteen months, however during this time Mater experienced several challenges with accessing and viewing high resolution patient images across its network of hospitals. According to Peter Nomikos, Director of IT Services at Mater, another key driver for choosing Citrix XenDesktop was the ability for medical practitioners to remotely review high resolution patient scans and videos, which is essential for accurate patient diagnosis. “With a typical patient CT or MRI scan requiring up to 4,000 images, it was critical to have a solution that could guarantee high resolution images and video delivery for emergency after hour’s diagnosis.” “Mater provides care for over half a million patients each year across different hospitals, so we needed to provide our staff with access to electronic health information across all sites. Citrix’s virtualisation technology has been invaluable in enabling clinicians to quickly sign in to any thin client and quickly access the information they need.” Citrix XenDesktop was initially deployed to 85 thin clients at the end of 2010, while a gradual rollout of between 2,000 to 2,500 thin clients across all sites commenced in March 2011. Mater Health Services also uses XenServer, Citrix’s server virtualisation offering, to host the Xendesktop workloads and NetScaler appliances to optimise application availability for users and provide a full desktop experience for remote access. Peter Brockhoff, Citrix area vice president for Australia and New Zealand, said, “Mater has long been a provider of first rate healthcare and has an outstanding reputation. Citrix is committed to working with healthcare organisations such as the Mater to reduce the cost and complexity of their existing desktop infrastructures as they continue to adapt to new business challenges and opportunities.” Mater is currently evaluating its mobile device strategy and is trialling remote access to tablet devices such as the iPad to its clinicians. In addition, Mater plans to improve care by using desktop virtualisation to transform bedside patient entertainment screens for use with medical applications. This will enable healthcare practitioners to better engage patients in their care at the bedside. *** About Citrix Systems, Inc. Citrix Systems, Inc.

Citrix Announces XenClient 2 and XenClient XT 2011-05-26T04:50:00Z citrix-announces-xenclient-2-and-xenclient-xt-1 SYDNEY – May 26, 2011 – Today at Citrix Synergy™, where virtual computing takes centre stage, Citrix Systems officially unveiled Citrix XenClient™ 2, the second generation of its innovative bare-metal client hypervisor developed in collaboration with Intel, which allows centrally managed virtual desktops to run directly on corporate laptops, even when they are disconnected from the network. The new version of XenClient, which is available today as a technology preview, adds extensive new ease-of-use and scalability features, and will be certified to run on an estimated 45 million[1] PCs and laptops, more than three times that of previous versions. In addition to the new XenClient 2 announcement, Citrix also launched XenClient XT, a new standalone product that delivers advanced levels of security, isolation and performance for customers with the most extreme client computing requirements. What’s New in XenClient 2 Expanded Hardware Compatibility – supports 3x as many laptops and PCs as previous versions, making it an ideal way to deliver virtual desktops “to go” on a broad selection of leading enterprise laptop brands and models. The new release also features support for the 2nd generation Intel Core™ vPro™ platform, building on the existing support for Intel’s 2010 and 2009 enterprise platforms. Expanded Graphics Support – expanded support for Intel HD Graphics, available on 2nd Generation Intel Core™ processors, and introduces support for discrete graphics architectures from AMD including the FirePro™ and Radeon™ series of GPUs. Production-scale Synchroniser – helps customers deploy XenClient-enabled laptops across larger and more complex enterprise environments, while still managing all virtual desktops centrally, including full synchronisation of user desktops, apps and data with the corporate datacentre. Simplified User Experience – Combined with new enhancements to the Citrix Receiver software client, XenClient 2 users will enjoy a simpler, more responsive, more intuitive user experience. Introducing XenClient XT Extreme Desktop Isolation – XenClient XT augments the XenClient hypervisor with hardened components and a unique new network isolation architecture that allows users to run multiple securely isolated local virtual desktops in separate security domains and completely isolated networks, all on a single physical system. Extreme Security – provides hardware-assisted security that leverages security capabilities in the Intel Core vPro platform. This includes a trusted boot capability powered by Intel Trusted Execution Technology (TXT) to ensure that XenClient XT is checked against a known good configuration on every boot, ensuring no unauthorised modifications to the system. Extreme Performance – capable of running the most graphically and computationally demanding desktop environments without compromise, while ensuring advanced security, isolation and performance. Multi-level Desktop Consolidation – allows customers to run a large number of securely isolated desktop computing environments on a single physical system, especially useful for public sector customers who need to work on multiple sensitive contracts and projects simultaneously with full network and desktop isolation. Why it Matters Desktop virtualisation is being widely adopted by both enterprises and government agencies as a more secure way to deliver desktops, apps and data to their employees, while improving security and agility with centralised desktop management. Citrix XenClient plays an integral role in this transition by enabling virtual desktops “to go” for millions of mobile workers, while simultaneously enabling fully isolated environments for advanced multi-client and high-security client computing use cases. Supporting Quotes “Desktop virtualisation is helping organisations of all kinds transform desktop computing into a secure, on-demand service. XenClient extends the benefits of virtualisation from the data centre to physical PCs. With XenClient 2, we’re adding new levels of scalability and support for millions more laptop and PC models. And, by extending the product family with XenClient XT, we are taking this industry-leading technology to new areas like high-security desktop computing in the public sector, helping these organisations manage the costs and ensure the security and isolation of their desktop environments,” said Gordon Payne, senior vice president and general manager, Desktop Division at Citrix. “The Synergy release of the XenClient 2 tech preview and announcement of the new Citrix XenClient XT product further illustrate Intel’s strong collaboration with Citrix. We have worked together to enable and optimise the XenClient 2 tech preview for the 2nd Generation Intel Core™ vPro™ processor family. Our collaboration has produced an intelligent approach to desktop virtualisation that delivers uncompromised performance, security, and manageability to IT and a great user experience for workers. XenClient was built from the start to utilise the powerful capabilities of Intel vPro technology. XenClient XT now takes it a step further by incorporating the additional hardware security benefits of Intel’s Trusted Execution Technology (TXT) to provide a verified platform on every boot. These innovations enable solutions delivered by Intel and Citrix with vPro and XenClient and our ecosystem to set a new bar for desktop virtualisation,” said Rick Echevarria, vice president, Intel Architecture Group and general manager, Business Client Platform Division. "The client hypervisor has been an integral part of Gartner's virtual desktop and application delivery reference architecture for multiple years. Many of our clients see the bare-metal client hypervisor as not only core to their mobile user support strategy, but also essential for the complex office worker who has normally required multiple physical workstations due to various security, privacy, and regulatory compliance considerations,” said Chris Wolf, research VP, Gartner.

As a result, Project Olympus helps customers build real infrastructure-as-a-service clouds that are scalable, efficient and open-by-design, because they use the same architecture, approach and technology that powers the largest and most successful clouds in the world. This approach stands in stark contrast to first-generation solutions that try to simulate cloud environments by adding proprietary management layers on top of existing datacentre virtualisation stacks. What’s New Next-Generation Cloud Infrastructure Platform: Project Olympus is comprised of two primary components: a Citrix-certified version of OpenStack and a cloud-optimised version of Citrix XenServer. Both versions incorporate Xen technology, the virtualisation platform of choice in more than 80 per cent of the public cloud today. Open-by-Design: Project Olympus will support a wide range of infrastructure, management and development solutions, making it easy for customers to expand and build on it. Reinforcing the Citrix commitment to customer choice, Project Olympus will also support Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere, just like it does in the desktop virtualisation space with its market-leading Citrix XenDesktop product line. Ideal for both Public and Private Clouds: Project Olympus is perfect for public cloud providers who want to focus their attention on providing differentiation and innovation, rather than recreating core cloud infrastructure. It is also ideal for enterprise customers who want to build private clouds with all the efficiency and flexibility that make the real cloud so transformative. Key Part of the Citrix Cloud Portfolio: Project Olympus is a key new addition to the Citrix open cloud computing portfolio. It complements the recently announced Citrix NetScaler Cloud Gateway, which gives IT an easy, unified way to orchestrate the delivery of any mix of SaaS, web and Windows apps to end users, and NetScaler Cloud Bridge, which gives IT unlimited capacity by seamlessly and securely extending any datacentre to any external cloud service. Built-In Cloud Networking: In addition to complementing NetScaler Cloud Gateway and Cloud Bridge, Project Olympus will come pre-integrated with the Citrix Cloud Networking fabric to ensure cloud applications and services are delivered with the best performance, security and reliability. It will also enable customers to fully leverage virtual switching and intelligent L4-7 capabilities in Networking-as-a-Service models. Early Access Program: Project Olympus will begin shipping later this year. For customers who want to begin pilots and proof-of-concept deployments today, Citrix is also introducing the Citrix Project Olympus Early Access Program, with key support from fellow OpenStack founding members, Dell and Rackspace. The program provides a sneak peek into the upcoming Citrix solution and helps customers get everything they need to start building scalable clouds today. To help customers get started, Dell and Rackspace are offering certified solutions for the Early Access Program, including: o Dell Early Access Support: As a founding member of the OpenStack project, Dell understands that configuring servers, storage and the networking to build cloud infrastructures for the first time can be complex and time-consuming. To address this, Dell is providing deployment software and a fully optimised reference architecture based on the PowerEdge C server platforms for Citrix Project Olympus Early Access Program members. o Rackspace Early Access Support: Also a founder of OpenStack and customer of XenServer in its own public cloud operation, Rackspace is the second largest public cloud in the world. To support the Citrix Project Olympus Early Access Program, Rackspace will leverage its expertise to provide deployment services, training and ongoing customer support for customer clouds. Rackspace Cloud Builders, a team of OpenStack experts, can help deploy and support private or public OpenStack clouds in any data centre. Why it matters Project Olympus is a game-changing new solution that provides: Openness: As open source-based IaaS solutions become more prevalent, the freedom of the cloud will be extended with seamless connections between other open source datacentres. By bringing an open cloud alternative to the industry, Project Olympus not only provides IT more scalability, but it also allows them to enhance and innovate their services and apps while dynamically expanding their compute capabilities without capital expense. Proven Technology – Proven technologies used by the largest clouds in the world – including Citrix NetScaler and XenServer, OpenStack and Xen – have been leveraged to provide a tested, certified, packaged version of the open source OpenStack with a cloud-optimised version of Citrix XenServer. As a result, the benefits of public cloud infrastructures are accessible to the development of private clouds for the enterprise and service providers. Rich Ecosystem: Project Olympus will further accelerate the rapidly growing, rich ecosystem of OpenStack cloud solution partners, including Dell, Intel and Rackspace and a range of solutions for cloud management (e.g., Rightscale); security (e.g., Trend Micro) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) (e.g., GigaSpaces, Engine Yard). Quotes Sameer Dholakia, VP of Product Marketing, Datacentre and Cloud Division, Citrix “Public clouds like Amazon and Rackspace have set the bar for how real clouds should be built, yet many vendors want to force-fit the cloud into existing server virtualisation architecture, giving customers more of an imitation cloud. Citrix believes it is time to leverage the open source community to bring cloud to a new level of innovation with a solution that brings the open, elastic, scale-out infrastructures of leading IaaS clouds to private clouds. There was no better project to help bring Project Olympus to fruition than OpenStack, with its dedicated industry support, rich ecosystem and rapid pace of innovation.” John Igoe, Executive Director of Development Engineering, Dell “Dell has been a part of the OpenStack initiative since the beginning. We’ve participated in the community by providing reference architectures, optimised PowerEdge C servers, and innovative software to meet growing customer demand for an open-source based cloud. By providing cloud-enabled versions of Xen and XenServer, Citrix is augmenting and strengthening OpenStack, helping drive new solutions that make it easier to accelerate virtualisation and cloud deployments alike. This is just the first step. Dell, RackSpace and Citrix will continue collaborating closely to drive new innovative cloud offerings and solutions.” Jim Curry, General Manager, Rackspace Cloud Builders “The momentum behind OpenStack is growing rapidly, and we are seeing enterprises and service providers hungry to deploy OpenStack-based clouds. Having a certified OpenStack distribution from an industry leader like Citrix will provide a further rallying point for the ecosystem and help drive adoption with service providers and enterprises looking for a trusted, commercial software provider to stand behind this mission-critical piece of infrastructure software.” Pricing and availability Early Access Program customers will receive Citrix Project Olympus beta software free of charge.

Project Olympus – including the Citrix-certified version of OpenStack and a cloud-optimised version of the popular Citrix XenServer – will be generally available later this year.

Citrix Extends Desktop Virtualisation Portfolio with Acquisition of Kaviza 2011-05-26T04:40:00Z citrix-extends-desktop-virtualisation-portfolio-with-acquisition-of-kaviza-1 SYDNEY – May 26, 2011 – Today, Citrix Systems announced it has closed its acquisition of Kaviza, makers of the market-leading all-in-one “VDI-in-a-Box” solution for small and medium business. The acquisition adds a unique VDI-only solution to the Citrix portfolio—allowing the company to further expand into the small and medium business market and accelerate its leadership in desktop virtualisation across all market segments from small organisations to large enterprises. The Kaviza “VDI-in-a-Box” product complements the market-leading Citrix XenDesktop product line for enterprise-class desktop virtualisation. SMB organisations are adopting desktop virtualisation at an accelerating rate in order to reduce desktop management costs, improve security and increase business agility. In fact, Gartner research shows that hosted virtual desktops have become the number two driver of new server purchases in SMBs across both North America and EMEA, and number four in Asia Pacific.[1] However, many small to medium businesses who are constantly under pressure to do more with less have been hesitant to adopt VDI in the past given the relative cost and complexity of deploying enterprise-class products in an SMB environment. Unlike other VDI products targeted at SMBs, Kaviza VDI-in-a-Box is not just a scaled-down enterprise product with limited functionality, performance and manageability. Instead, Kaviza offers a highly innovative solution designed from the ground up to give SMB customers brilliantly simple, low-cost, “all-in-one” VDI solution purpose-built for their needs. Kaviza VDI-in-a-Box Kaviza VDI-in-a-Box gives SMB customers everything they need to “go virtual” with VDI in a single, easy-to-deploy software virtual appliance. This “all-in-one” solution simplifies VDI adoption for SMB customers with an innovative design that requires: No separate connection brokers No load balancers No provisioning servers No expensive shared network storage Kaviza VDI-in-Box: Installs quickly and is easy to manage – A single all-in-one virtual appliance enables the full production deployment of virtual desktops in two hours or less. Additional servers can be deployed and connected to the grid in minutes. A simple administrator interface makes moves, adds and changes simple. Delivers a high-definition user experience with HDX™ – Citrix HDX technology delivers high performance and complete virtual desktop capabilities to any device, or any network, while minimising bandwidth requirements. Utilises simple, cost-effective infrastructure to provide a high return on investment – The grid architecture delivers a highly available solution with fewer servers than traditional VDI solutions and no shared storage or management servers. Provides flexibility and choice -- The open architecture provides multi-hypervisor support for Citrix XenServer and VMware ESX, with Microsoft Hyper-V support coming soon. Citrix Synergy Citrix Synergy™ attendees will have the opportunity to experience the Kaviza VDI-in-a-Box offering at Citrix Synergy 2011 in San Francisco, May 25-27. Supporting Quotes “Kaviza understands the needs of small and medium businesses and has made great strides in giving these types of organisations a simple, low-cost solution for virtual desktops. The Kaviza team and the innovative technology they have built will add significant value to our desktop virtualisation product line as more and more SMBs adopt virtual desktops, and it will help us drive continued growth and market leadership in desktop virtualisation,” said Gordon Payne, senior vice president and general manager, Desktop Division at Citrix. “The union of Kaviza and Citrix is a natural fit that will benefit our customers and channel partners. We founded Kaviza and created “VDI-in-a-Box” specifically for small and medium customers whose needs have been underserved by existing solutions. By joining Citrix, we will be able to leverage the benefits of increased investment, global presence and a large channel footprint. This represents a win for small and medium-sized businesses that want to adopt desktop virtualisation across their organisations,” said Kumar K. Goswami, co-founder and CEO, Kaviza. “For several years, clients have requested all-in-one server appliances to meet the desktop virtualisation needs of their small offices and branch offices. In 2009, I called on the vendor community to meet this requirement and several responded. Here we are, two years later, and there is a bigger need due to the growth in desktop virtualisation. Without question, low-cost desktop virtualisation in-a-box solutions extend the operational, security and TCO benefits common in large-scale virtual desktop deployments to the small or branch office,” said Chris Wolf, research VP, Gartner. "We partner with Citrix, Microsoft and Kaviza, and we are very excited by the new opportunities this creates both for customers and for our company. VDI-in-a-box is game-changing with its simplicity and affordability, and now with the support of Citrix, it becomes a no-brainer," said Brian Bradley, VP business development, Blue-Chip Consulting, LLC. Availability Customers can continue to purchase VDI-in-a-box from Kaviza resellers. Starting July 1, 2011 customers will also be able to buy from Citrix Solution Advisors.

Citrix Dazzles End Users with Self-Service Virtual Desktops from Millions of Devices 2009-11-17T01:59:09Z citrix-dazzles-end-users-with-self-service-virtual-desktops-from-millions-of-devices Australia and New Zealand — November 17, 2009 — To further accelerate the mainstream adoption of desktop virtualisation, Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTXS) today announced the general availability of Citrix Dazzle™ for Windows and Mac, along with new versions of Citrix Receiver™ for Windows, Mac, iPhone, BlackBerry and Android. The new releases make virtual desktops far more compelling for end users, enabling unprecedented levels of flexibility, mobility and self service. As the first self-service “storefront” for enterprise applications, Citrix Dazzle gives corporate employees 24x7 self-service access to a broad array of applications, desktops and content, allowing them to choose exactly what they need, when they need it. Citrix Receiver is a lightweight software client that makes accessing virtual desktops and applications on any device as easy as turning on your TV. Together, Dazzle and Receiver work with Citrix XenDesktop™, the company’s market-leading desktop virtualisation solution, to power self-service IT for a wide range of virtual desktops, giving every user in the enterprise instant access to their corporate desktops and applications from whatever device is most convenient at the time. While the promise of centralised security, simpler management and lower costs have been the primary drivers of desktop virtualisation, delivering a great experience for end users is equally important. This is especially true as younger employees enter the workforce, bringing with them increasingly high expectations for self service, flexibility and personalisation (see video “Generation Y will drive self-service virtual desktops”). By investing heavily in both enterprise scalability and user experience, Citrix continues to win accolades from desktop virtualisation customers, analysts, end users and independent reviewers alike. InformationWeek recently selected Citrix XenDesktop over eight other products as its “Editor’s Choice” for desktop virtualisation, while readers of Redmond Magazine chose XenDesktop as the “Best Desktop Virtualisation Product” among 14 other products as part of their recent Reader’s Choice awards, calling Citrix “the runaway winner with almost half the votes going its way.” 2010 Will be the Year of Desktop Virtualisation Multiple factors are converging to make 2010 a breakout year for desktop virtualisation. As 2009 draws to a close, desktop virtualisation is progressing along the same rapid trajectory that server virtualisation enjoyed two to three years ago – moving quickly from test labs, to pilots, to full scale production deployments. As virtual desktop technologies continue to mature, an increasing number of enterprises are proving their mainstream viability by rolling out large-scale virtual desktop implementations to thousands of users, improving security and reducing desktop management costs by up to 50 percent in the process. The desktop virtualisation market is expected to accelerate further in 2010 with the highly-anticipated arrival of Windows 7 as organisations of all sizes take time to evaluate their enterprise-wide strategies for desktop computing. Many experts, in fact, expect desktop virtualisation to ultimately surpass server virtualisation, in part because of the sheer size of the potential markets. While server virtualisation currently has an addressable market size of approximately 35 million servers worldwide, desktop virtualisation has the potential to impact more than 600 million desktop users in corporate environments alone. Demand Coming from Both End Users and IT While the benefits of server virtualisation are almost exclusively focused on IT agility and cost savings, desktop virtualisation has the unique advantage of benefiting both the end user and IT. Centralised management of employee desktops gives IT what it wants most – greater security, control and cost savings. At the same time, going virtual at the desktop also gives end users what they want most – flexibility, choice and self service. Through the power of virtualisation, Windows desktops can be delivered by IT as an on-demand service to any device. This flexibility gives users the ability to work from any device they choose, and to self select the services they need, when they need them. At the same time, IT gains all the benefits of centralised management and control, ensuring unprecedented security of corporate resources, and significantly lowering desktop management costs. The combination of Citrix XenDesktop at the head end, and Citrix Dazzle and Receiver on each device, enable customers to respond to the growing demand from both users and IT administrators for a simpler, richer, more powerful desktop computing experience. Desktop Virtualisation is Ready for Every User While early VDI-only (virtual desktop infrastructure) products allowed only one model of desktop virtualisation, XenDestkop 4 with its new FlexCast™ delivery technology gives customers the flexibility to deliver any type of virtual desktop, to any user, on any device – and to change this mix at any time. This unprecedented flexibility makes virtual desktops a practical reality for every type of employee – from task workers and office workers, to power users and mobile employees. To reach broad, enterprise-wide deployment, virtual desktops must also provide a great experience for end users. Citrix addresses the first part of this equation with its market-leading HDX™ technology, which ensures a high definition experience for all end users, regardless of their location or device. Bringing the Power of Desktop Virtualisation to Any Device The addition of self service capabilities with Citrix Dazzle and Receiver significantly enhances virtual desktop user experience by enabling employees and contractors to get instant, secure, self-service access to their full Windows desktop and everything on it from whatever device is most convenient. Dazzle is a user-facing application that runs on any Windows or Mac computer. It acts as the storefront for all the applications IT has centrally staged in head-end infrastructure products like XenDesktop. To select an application in Dazzle, users simply browse and search based on application name, description or type. Dazzle also interfaces directly with Citrix Merchandising Server, the head-end management system that makes it easy for IT to actually start “merchandising” apps to users, not just delivering them. Dazzle is fully integrated with Citrix Receiver, the universal software client that makes it easy for users to access corporate apps and desktops from any device they choose. With the new Receivers for Blackberry and Android, Citrix has extended anytime access to applications to even more mobile devices. Together, Citrix Dazzle and Citrix Receiver with XenDesktop bring the power of desktop virtualisation to millions of devices. “Virtualisation has brought a tremendous amount of positive change in IT over the last few years,” said Gordon Payne, senior vice president and general manager of the Desktop Division at Citrix. “Server virtualisation has transformed the datacentre and holds great promise in cloud computing. As virtualisation now moves to the desktop in 2010, our goal is to revolutionise the desktop computing experience for end users and IT administrators alike. With XenDesktop 4, we’re giving IT unprecedented control, security and cost savings over their desktop assets. At the same time, we’re helping IT give end users exactly what they want most, providing self service through solutions like Dazzle, and making millions of endpoint devices virtualisation-ready with Receiver.” Availability Citrix Dazzle, Citrix Receiver and Citrix Merchandising Server are free of charge to any Citrix XenDesktop or Citrix XenApp™ customer. The following versions of Dazzle and Receiver will be generally available to all Citrix customers in December: Dazzle 1.1 for Microsoft Windows; Dazzle 1.2 for Apple Mac Receiver 1.2 for Windows and Mac Receiver 2.0 for Apple iPhone (available at the Apple App Store) Receiver 1.0 for RIM Blackberry (available at the Blackberry App World store) Receiver Tech Preview for Android by Google Product Information and Resources Citrix XenDesktop 4 pageCitrix Dazzle and ReceiverCitrix Receiver for mobile devicesCitrix XenDesktop Community Citrix on FacebookCitrix on Twitter: @XenDesktop and #XD4 About Citrix Citrix Systems, Inc.
