AppSense to Demonstrate Cloud-Based User Virtualization Technology at Citrix Synergy 2010

AppSense, the leading provider of user virtualization solutions, today announced that it will showcase how its user virtualization technology easily integrates with Citrix XenDesktop® and Microsoft System Center® technologies in both cloud computing and iPad environments at Citrix Synergy 2010, taking place May 12-14, 2010 at Moscone West Convention Center in San Francisco. In addition, Martin Ingram, the company’s vice president of strategy, will be presenting “The Virtualized User Infrastructure” in the Geek Speakeasy Area located in the Solutions Expo Hall on Tuesday, May 11 at 9 p.m.

At the show, AppSense will demonstrate dynamic personalization of desktops and applications delivered using Citrix XenDesktop and Microsoft App-V to physical PCs, thin clients and iPads at their booth #304. The ‘Personality Cloud’ demo will use Citrix XenDesktop to provide a virtual desktop accessed via a thin client device. This desktop includes applications provided using both Citrix XenApp and Microsoft App-V technologies. AppSense user virtualization technology will dynamically configure and personalize the desktop, including the App-V and XenApp provisioned applications, all from a cloud-based service using their Virtualized User Infrastructure technology.

AppSense will also demonstrate how AppSense user virtualization technology enables the persistence of a user’s personality from a locally installed desktop PC to an iPad running XenDesktop via Citrix Receiver.

“We are beginning to use iPads and are rolling out AppSense’s user virtualization technology with them,” said Nick Volosin, ISS director of technical services at Kaweah Delta Health Care District. “AppSense was easy to deploy on the iPads and AppSense technology is helping us effectively manage the user environment and dramatically save on IT management costs.”

“The technology and user requirements for desktops are rapidly evolving – cloud computing and iPads are just recent examples of new ways enterprises are delivering desktops to meet user need,” said Peter Rawlinson, vice president of marketing at AppSense. “Our user virtualization technology can be used in any desktop environment regardless of delivery method in order to provide users with a consistent and personalized user environment whether they are using local PC, off-line laptops, the cloud or even an iPad.”

Synergy 2010 is focused on exploring the convergence between virtualization, networking and cloud computing and how these technologies can solve real business problems. For more information about the conference, visit
