Registration Now Open for Citrix Synergy 2010
Citrix Systems, Inc., today announced registration for Citrix Synergy™ 2010 is now open. Citrix Synergy – where virtualization, networking and cloud computing meet – has evolved into a global event offered in two key geographic locations: Synergy San Francisco will take place May 12 to 14, 2010, at the Moscone West Convention Center, and Synergy Berlin will be held Oct. 6 to 7, 2010, at the Estrel Hotel and Convention Center.

Synergy offers an open, expansive array of technical and business breakout sessions, as well as hands-on learning labs, presented by leading technical experts. Presenters will examine key issues impacting IT, such as breaking away from the costs and complexities of the distributed computing status quo; building a simpler, more cost-effective computing environment to position organizations at the forefront of the on-demand IT services era and utilizing available technologies to achieve and exceed business goals.

Synergy will feature timely virtualization, networking and cloud computing content, including sessions such as:

  • Need a simpler, low-risk path to Windows 7? Desktop virtualization makes it a snap!
  • Bring Your Own Computer (BYOC) is ready for prime time: How Citrix did it and what we learned.
  • Dear CFO, I know how we can save big bucks with desktop virtualization…
  • Virtualization and application networking. Learn how one plus one equals three.
  • HDX, the user experience “champ,” takes on the contenders.

Synergy is the industry’s premier conference focused on the growing convergence between virtualization, networking and cloud computing. Session content will address how these technologies can solve real IT business problems in an open and dynamic atmosphere and will be divided into the following three tracks:

Desktop Virtualization

This track provides a comprehensive examination of desktop virtualization, covering the full breadth of desktop virtualization technologies, including client virtualization (local virtual desktops), desktop streaming, VDI (hosted virtual desktops), self-service on-demand applications, application virtualization and user profile management. You’ll get case studies of successful implementations, best practices, technical sessions and a roadmap to help you reduce costs, simplify desktop management and deliver high-definition desktops to all users now.


Server virtualization, networking and cloud technologies are converging to enable dramatic improvements in datacenter efficiency, flexibility and reliability at an affordable cost. You’ll learn about the latest innovations in server virtualization, datacenter infrastructure management, and networking and application delivery controllers. This fast-paced technical track will examine all three areas with special attention to options and merits of private and public cloud solutions.

IT Business and Strategy

Senior IT management face unprecedented challenges, needing to reduce costs, while simultaneously delivering innovation to drive efficiencies for their users and effectiveness for their business. This track is designed for senior IT leaders, providing new sources of IT-led innovation and competitive advantage to position their business for success today and in the future. Insightful, interactive sessions will feature prominent industry executives who have produced impressive bottom-line improvements for their businesses.

Synergy will also feature hands-on training. The instructor-led, hands-on learning labs provide the in-depth experience required to master new Citrix technologies. These high-value, unique labs are designed for administrators and architects responsible for managing or designing an environment that consists of Citrix technologies including XenDesktop, XenApp, XenServer and NetScaler.

Citrix Summit 2010, the premier training conference designed for members of the Citrix Partner Network, will be combined with Synergy – both in San Francisco and Berlin. Summit, which begins two days prior to Synergy, is the main event where the company’s partners can learn about the latest trends in virtualization, network optimization and cloud computing solutions. Summit provides intense educational sessions and offers valuable technical knowledge, selling skills and competitive strategies for attendees.

Registration for Synergy and Summit San Francisco, as well as Synergy and Summit Berlin is now available at A discounted, early bird registration is available for Synergy San Francisco through Feb. 2, which provides a $400 savings off of the normal conference fee.
