Citrix Synergy Barcelona recap: Combining XenApp and XenDesktop

Date: Oct 22, 2012

Citrix Synergy Barcelona wrapped up last week, with lots of mobile and desktop virtualization news coming out of the annual conference. Experts Gabe Knuth and Jack Madden recap the keynote and explain the new technology announced at the show.

Desktop virtualization admins will be happy that Citrix is effectively packaging XenApp and XenDesktop into Excalibur, the first phase of Project Avalon. That will provide a unified management interface and back end for the terminal server and VDI products.

Giving a boost to mobile application management, the vendor added two mobile apps to its MDX suite. In the keynote, users also learned about ShareFile's StorageZone Connector, which will allow mobile workers to access legacy network shares.
