Cisco and Citrix Systems said Wednesday that they will collaborate on desktop virtualization tools to ease deployments.
Desktop virtualization is a concept that looks like it’s finally getting its day in the sun. The Windows 7 upgrade cycle is prompting technology executives to look at desktop virtualization as a deployment option. The push to deliver enterprise applications to a bevy of devices—PCs, Macs, thin clients, smartphones and tablets—also drives interest in desktop virtualization.
Both VMware and Citrix
have noted increasing interest in desktop virtualization. Citrix, however, is actually garnering revenue from the interest.
