HP Strengthens Desktop Virtualization Portfolio with Support for Citrix XenDesktop

HP Strengthens Desktop Virtualization Portfolio with Support for Citrix XenDesktop

Adding to the industry’s most complete portfolio of desktop virtualization offerings, HP (NYSE:HPQ) today announced it plans to support Citrix XenDesktop™ upon its availability in May across its industry-standard HP ProLiant server (http://www.hp.com/go/proliant) and HP Compaq thin client (http://www.hp.com/go/thinclient) product lines.

Citrix XenDesktop is a comprehensive desktop delivery solution that allows companies to virtualize Microsoft® Windows® desktops in the data center and deliver them on demand to office workers in any location. Using XenDesktop can dramatically simplify desktop management, enabling customers to provision new users far more quickly, improve data security and save up to 40 percent over the cost of installing and managing desktops on traditional PCs.(1)

HP, one of the world’s leading thin-client providers, is delivering integrated access to XenDesktop deployments to provide customers with safe, affordable, easy-to-deploy thin clients that enhance the user experience and reduce IT costs through simplified lifecycle management.

“HP offers a broad range of desktop solutions that make virtualization a reality for a very wide range of worker and IT infrastructure types,” said Roberto Moctezuma, vice president and general manager, Desktop Solutions Organization, HP. “The combination of HP virtualization and Citrix’s XenDesktop will provide IT departments with an excellent solution for simple and secure management of their desktop base while providing users an optimal computing experience.”

The addition of XenDesktop support allows an even more flexible and streamlined architecture for users working from remote locations, and it ensures high-speed application delivery across a virtual infrastructure.

This support also builds on HP’s recent introduction of HP ProLiant iVirtualization (http://www.hp.com/go/proliantvirtualization) powered by Citrix XenServer. This combination allows HP customers to easily take advantage of Citrix’s full application and desktop delivery solutions to help make their IT infrastructures more flexible and dynamic from the desktop to the data center.

Additionally HP Business Service Automation and HP Insight Dynamics - VSE software provide seamless management of virtual and physical server environments. In supporting virtual clients, HP Business Service Automation specifically can provision, patch and inventory client systems running Citrix XenDesktop technology.

“Support for Citrix XenDesktop across HP’s server and thin client products further extends the broad ecosystem of products and solutions that will accelerate the adoption of on-demand delivery to users anywhere,” said Raj Dhingra, group vice president and general manager, Desktop Delivery Group, Citrix Systems.

HP’s existing Remote Client Solutions portfolio of desktop virtualization offerings includes thin clients, blade servers, workstations, HP Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (http://www.hp.com/go/vdi) and traditional server-based computing. These help business customers dramatically reduce security risks and management and support costs by centralizing computing hardware and sensitive data within data centers.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things').

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
