Citrix unveils on-demand provision of virtual servers and desktops from datacentre

Citrix has added on-demand provisioning of virtual servers and desktops to its application delivery infrastructure.

Based on the OS-streaming technology it gained through the January acquisition of Ardence, Citrix has launched Citrix Provisioning Server, which enables IT departments to stream datacentre and desktop operating systems and workloads to both virtual and physical machines from a central location.

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.
