Citrix slurps Norskale
Citrix has acquired a company called Norskale, a privately-held user environment management (UEM) concern it fancies for its "holistic view of the workspace that includes the user, application, desktop and underlying system resources."
That's apparently something Citrix would like to bolt on to Xen App and Xen Desktop, so that you can create user profiles those products can use to deliver more tailored and portable desktops.
Citrix therefore plans to cook up a new "Workspace Environment Manager" based on Norskale, and to make it "available to all XenApp and XenDesktop Enterprise and Platinum edition customers with active Software Maintenance."
You lucky, lucky, people. ®
