Citrix XenDesktop 4 released and available for download

The moment is here, XenDesktop 4 is available!

Much awaited and true to their promise Citrix has just officially made XenDesktop 4 available for download on the download page of MyCitrix.com : http://www.citrix.com/English/ss/downloads/results.asp?productID=163057 (you need to be registered and login).

So now everybody can go ahead and download the Citrix XenDesktop 4 Evaluation and try it on their own virtual infrastructure, say XenServer, vSphere, Hyper-V … That’s the power of Citrix XenDesktop: it runs on all these platforms!

For those who might be interested, the Quick PoC Kit is not up-to-date yet with XenDesktop 4, it’s still version 3.1 but I suppose it’ll be updated really soon.

Later this week I’ll dive further into the details of XenDesktop 4 and all of its (unique) features, and because of our Bloggers Battle, I’ll emphasize the pros compared to VMware View 4.

For now: happy downloading !
