In April last year, virtualization.info reported that Citrix made a strategic investment in Kaviza, for an undisclosed sum and no details about the terms of the deal. Citrix is now taking this to the next level, because during the annual Citrix Synergy conference, Citrix announced that it has acquired Kaviza known for its connection broker software VDI-in-a-Box.
Kaviza offers an all-in-one VDI solution that doesn’t require shared storage and dedicated load balanced connection brokers, making it a less complex solution to implement compared to Citrix XenDesktop or VMware View. Customers just have to deploy the Kaviza virtual appliance on their hypervisor of choice and they are ready to go.
Both companies also posted a FAQ for its customers.
