Citrix Publishes FAQ on Microsoft Application Virtualization and Citrix XenApp (formerly Presentation Server) Working Together

  • Comments 1

Hello everyone!  A lot of people have speculated that Citrix and Microsoft would be at odds over the acquisition of Softricity SoftGrid as it seemed to pit the two partners against each other over application virtualization.  However, working in conjunction with Microsoft, Citrix has just posted a new blog entry which outlines how the two products continue to interoperate, bringing the best of both solutions together to maximize the customer management experience.

Microsoft also has a KB article and white paper on integrations between the two solutions:

  • Doesn't Softgrid compete with Citrix Streaming server?  Why was that not mentioned in the blog?  I also think that Citrix and Microsoft will be at odds over XenApp & TS Remote Apps  and also XenEnterprise & HyperV.  If TS Remote Apps (especially printing) & HyperV can deliver then Citrix will definately loose market share.
