SAN FRANCISCO, May 24, 2011 — CITRIX SYNERGY — Splunk, the leading provider of operational intelligence software, today announced availability of the new Splunk for Citrix┬« XenDesktop┬« app which will deliver greater operational visibility for XenDesktop customers. Splunk software collects, indexes and harnesses the machine data generated by IT systems and infrastructure -whether physical, virtual or in the cloud.

Citrix XenDesktop 5 transforms desktop computing to provide a more flexible, people-centric experience. Splunk for Citrix XenDesktop helps IT deliver higher service levels to virtual desktop users by providing visibility into the critical components of a virtual desktop deployment. Splunk’s flexibility in providing both a high-level view and deep data drilldown provides IT teams with unprecedented visibility to manage large-scale virtual desktop deployments. Splunk for XenDesktop will be featured at the Citrix Desktop Transformation Booth at Citrix Synergy.

“CIOs increasingly are looking for ways to move from a distributed computing model to a more people-centric, virtualized computing model and products like Splunk for XenDesktop help accelerate this transformation. We already are seeing tremendous customer interest in the Splunk app for helping to manage the IT infrastructure stack,” said Gordon Payne, senior vice president and general manager, Desktop Division at Citrix. “Splunk has become a valued partner of Citrix across our networking and desktop virtualization solutions with a shared vision of helping our customers streamline the end-to-end management of Citrix environments.”

In addition to Splunk for XenDesktop, Splunk will demonstrate their recently announced Splunk for Citrix Netscaler app with AppFlow(TM) at Citrix Synergy.
