Citrix VDI-in-a-Box is all-in-one desktop virtualization software built for small and medium-sized businesses.

Citrix VDI-in-a-Box is a turnkey desktop virtualization software built for small and medium-sized businesses.

Citrix VDI-in-a-Box installs on a single server. Customers can configure their own commodity computer to run as a VDI server -- making it easier to simply add hardware when capacity increases. Administrators can manage Citrix VDI-in-a-Box through a single console; the software takes advantage of the HDX protocol technology.

Citrix Systems Inc. acquired VDI-in-a-Box from Kaviza in May 2011. The software works with any hypervisor and is simpler to install and work with than enterprise-grade virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) platforms such as VMware View or Citrix XenDesktop. VDI-in-a-Box costs less than Citrix XenDesktop, but it does not come with rights to XenApp or XenServer Enterprise.
