In September Citrix silently released the first minor update for its VDI platform XenDesktop.
The new XenDesktop 2.1 becomes a serious multi-hypervisor connection broker, as it introduces the support for Microsoft products (both Hyper-V and System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008) that goes side by side with the existing support for Citrix XenServer and VMware ESX.
The product also includes the new Provisioning Server for Desktops 5.0.
To celebrate Citrix has released an interesting evaluation guide: Citrix XenDesktop 2.1 with Microsoft Hyper-V and System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008.
The virtualization.info Virtualization Industry Roadmap has been updated accordingly.
