And the Winner Is… Citrix XenDesktop 4

Citrix XenDesktop 4 is a comprehensive desktop virtualization solution that delivers a complete Windows desktop experience as an on-demand service to any user, anywhere, making virtual desktops a mainstream reality for hundreds of millions of corporate employees for the first time ever. In addition to simplifying desktop computing for IT, XenDesktop makes it easy for end users to securely access their corporate desktop and apps from any device, including PCs, Macs, thin clients, laptops, iPads, iPhones, BlackBerrys, Androids and Windows Mobile smartphones.

Unlike VDI-only solutions that are applicable only to a narrow set of users, XenDesktop 4 with its groundbreaking FlexCast™ delivery technology is the first product in the industry to support every major desktop virtualization model in a single, integrated solution – a breakthrough that improves ROI, simplifies management and extends the benefits of virtualization to every employee in the enterprise.

“Enterprises are rethinking how they deliver desktops to their users. XenDesktop is revolutionizing desktop computing by allowing customers to deliver any type of virtual desktop to users enterprise-wide and helping to speed the migration to Windows 7,” said Raj Dhingra, group vice president and general manager, XenDesktop product group at Citrix. “Winning the Best of Interop award is a testament to the strength of XenDesktop in driving mainstream adoption of desktop virtualization.”

The Best of Interop Award ceremony was held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center during this year’s Interop Las Vegas, which concluded on Thursday, April 29. For more information on the winners, visit:
