New Products from Microsoft and Citrix
What a week! Both Microsoft and Citrix released presentation virtualization products we were waiting for since quite some time. A couple of days ago Microsoft started shipping a beta release of Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization (MED-V), which is one of the six technologies in the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack. Microsoft bought an initial version of the MED-V technology when they acquired the company Kidaro in March 2008. To learn more please check out the MED-V page at microsoft.com.
After last year’s acquisition of sepagoPROFILES and almost one year of fine-tuning, Citrix finally released Citrix User Profile Manager 2.0. Download the product at www.mycitrix.com (login required). Citrix User Profile Manager is available for XenApp Enterprise and Platinum editions and XenDesktop Advanced, Enterprise and Platinum editions.
Another product Citrix released this week – after they initially announced it at Citrix Solution Summit in early 2008 – is Workflow Studio 1.0. To learn more about the product refer to the Workflow Studio page at citrix.com.
