Citrix said the new product enables more agile and cost-effective delivery of applications and desktops, and provides an ideal complement to the company's recently announced acquisition of virtual infrastructure supplier XenSource.
By streaming a server OS and workload on-demand - rather than physically loading them on each server - Provisioning Server increases IT flexibility, reduces the need for backup servers, cuts energy costs and streamlines IT management, said Citrix.
