IBM and Citrix have a long and successful relationship delivering Desktop Virtualization solutions. We are continuing this successful partnership by working closely with IBM Systems and Technology Group to optimize and test IBM Flex Systems on Citrix XenDesktop. Enterprises can be confident that they can deploy high performance Flex Systems with Citrix technologies, and that Citrix and IBM have partnered to ensure successful implementation.
XenDesktop takes full advantage of IBM PureSystems compute, storage and networking resources for rapid deployment and cost management of desktop virtualization. As the market leader in Desktop virtualization, Citrix helps IBM deliver a great user experience with XenDesktop . Customers can efficiently tailor the desktop experience for different user groups, business needs and IT strategy, without sacrificing scalability.
With PureFlex and Flex Systems, customers can manage, secure and quickly deploy virtual desktops. IBM, with the help of Citrix, has created a reference architecture for IBM SmartCloud Infrastructure with Citrix XenDesktop 5.6 on VMware ESXi 5 hypervisor.
