Besides announcing a technical preview of the next version of XenClient, Citrix today also announced the release of XenClient XT, a new type supporting advanced levels of security, isolation and performance with extreme client computing requirements. XenClient XT will be available for download in June this year.
Citrix XenClient XT features:
- XenClient XT augments the XenClient hypervisor with hardened components and a unique new network isolation architecture that allows users to run multiple securely isolated local virtual desktops in separate security domains and completely isolated networks, all on a single physical system.
- Makes use of hardware-assisted security that leverages security capabilities in the Intel Core vPro platform, including a trusted boot capability using Intel Trusted Execution Technology (TXT) ensuring that XenClient XT is checked against a known good configuration on every boot, ensuring no unauthorized modifications to the system.
- Customers can run a large number of securely isolated desktop computing environments on a single physical system.
