Thin Clients, VDI and Linux integration from the front lines.... Raw and sometimes unedited notes based on my experiences with VMware, Thin Clients, Linux etc.

Well this is interesting, and on the surface of it, it would certainly appear that Citrix is working their relationship with MS pretty hard? It will be interesting to see what other *rabbits* get pulled out of the hat this week? I wonder how much of this is Citrix or MS developed technology?

10/10/2005   »    Today at its 8th annual business and technology conference, Citrix iForum™ Global 2005, Citrix President and CEO Mark Templeton announced a major technology development initiative, codenamed Project “Constellation,” to deliver the next generation of application virtualization technologies built for the next major release of Microsoft® Windows Server™ - codenamed Longhorn. These technologies will lead to a broader set of Citrix products that will enable our customers to deliver, manage and support on-demand access to IT services.

“Constellation represents our vision of the future of application virtualization,” said Templeton. “Constellation comprises new innovative technologies that have been under development for the past two years and will result in many new application virtualization products, features and options.”

Constellation technologies include:

  • System health monitoring for resilience, problem isolation and fault tolerance
  • Guaranteed best end-user experience through autonomic load management
  • Graphics acceleration for improved application performance for all application types including graphics intensive applications
  • Effective monitoring and management of service level agreements through end-to-end visibility and reporting, including user experience monitoring
  • On-demand system configuration for continuous operations and effective system state management
  • Much improved access compliance for tighter security, from preventive to forensic auditing, using system lockdown and session recording technologies
