Citrix, desktop virtualization, hypervisor, laptop virtualization, Virtualization, XenClient, XenClient Express kit
Citrix delivered on the IT Kit for pro’s but the official release of its Hypervisor for desktops and laptops won’t ship until later this year.
The XenClient Express kit, which is available free for public download today, includes the bare metal hypervisor, the Citrix Receiver for XenClient and the Synchronizer for XenClient.
Using XenClient, users can run multiple virtual machines on a single laptop that are secure and mobile at the same time, Templeton said. Virtual machines can be run online and offline and synchronized in a fully flexible fashion, he claimed.
It would be nice to have desktop and laptop operating systems published to hardware, using offline mode with synchronization is very cool… I will definitely have to give this a try.
