Company, Product and Alliance Highlights
During the first quarter of 2012, Citrix announced:

  • A new release of Citrix® XenDesktop®, which fully integrates the personalization technology acquired last year via Ringcube and support for Microsoft System Center 2012, as well as Citrix AppDNA™ 6 software for application migration management, giving enterprises a seamless way to design, deploy and manage virtual desktops and applications in existing operations.
  • A new “Cloud Provider Pack” with powerful automation, application aggregation and mobility technologies for hosting providers delivering Windows apps and desktops as a hosted cloud service.
  • The general availability of Citrix CloudStack™ 3, which brings the power of Amazon-style clouds to enterprise customers that want to transform virtualized datacenter resources into automated, elastic, self-service clouds.  Related, in early April, Citrix submitted CloudStack to the Apache Software Foundation, home of the world’s most successful open source projects, commencing the process to elevate CloudStack into a full open source Apache Software Foundation project.
  • A strategic partnership with Bytemobile, Inc. to deliver new solutions for the mobile data market by combining Citrix NetScaler®’s mobile computing solutions and flexible application delivery with Bytemobile’s best-in-class traffic management and data optimization solutions, as well as its global footprint of MNO deployments.
  • Citrix has teamed with Dell to deliver a new VDI appliance that simplifies and accelerates desktop virtualization deployments for the mass market. The Dell DVS Simplified solution with Citrix VDI-in-a-Box™ will be sold through Dell’s global sales team and channels.
  • Citrix has added HDFaces video conferencing to its GoToMeeting® app for iPad, providing a new level of rich mobile collaboration in an easy-to-use, one-tap format.
  • In April 2012, Citrix announced the acquisition of Podio™, an innovative, privately held company that offers a collaborative work platform which supports people and teams getting work done the way they want in a social setting.  Podio’s unique apps concept adds structure and activity streams to any type of work and collaboration with teams, clients, in projects, and within functions such as sales, recruiting, marketing or any other area of business. A cloud service, Podio unifies the content, traditional business applications, and new mobile apps, as well as the real-time and asynchronous communications required to work in the post PC era.
