Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

US retail chain Circuit City has deployed Citrix MetaFrame servers to its 500 stores across the country, in what Citrix says is one of the largest MetaFrame deployments to date. Circuit City will be using the servers to run its build-to-order kiosks, and as a mechanism to migrate from various non-Dos and incompatible in-store computer systems. The build-to-order kiosks allow customers to design their own name-brand PC. MetFrame is being used to centralise software installation, updates and maintenance on them. The more important aspect of the announcement in the longer term however is that Circuit City seems to be moving towards being a MetaFrame shop. The company will use the kiosk servers as the basis for its in-store systems, migrating applications to them and running these remotely from existing older Windows PCs and Unix workstations, using Citrix's client software in order to do so. ® Click for more stories
