The goal of this integration note is to describe Citrix XenDesktop technology, architecture, and implementation on ProLiant servers. The audience is both internal and external customers. Desktop virtualization involves server-based computing that gives system administrators the ability to centrally manage and host desktop virtual machines in the data center while giving end users a full PC desktop experience. Desktop virtualization provides many of the advantages of a terminal server, but can provide users added flexibility, such as the ability to install and configure applications, as well as the ability to access virtual desktops from other locations. Virtual desktops are dynamically assembled on demand, providing users with new, personalized desktops each time they log on, as well as high-speed network responsiveness.
