HotLink Corporation announced HotLink Hybrid Express for Citrix, the first hybrid management solution to seamlessly extend VMware vCenter to XenServer for Citrix desktop and application virtualization users. For IT organizations that have standardized on VMware management for general-purpose virtual infrastructure, HotLink's new offering is the only technology available that enables the robust capabilities of VMware vCenter to be applied to XenServer hosts and virtual machines (VMs) without adding consoles, sacrificing features, rebuilding VM templates, redesigning workflows or adding new IT skills.

Citrix and HotLink are working together to help Citrix customers dramatically simplify hybrid IT operations and reduce overall costs, while benefitting from the superior performance of the XenServer hypervisor for XenApp and XenDesktop deployments. Optimized for application virtualization and VDI, XenServer - included in all XenApp and XenDesktop editions - offers superior graphics support and industry-leading security, as well as faster desktop boot times, lower network bandwidth utilization and streamlined Provisioning Services. With HotLink Hybrid Express for Citrix, IT shops can combine best-of-breed virtual infrastructure together with unified, fine-grained administration and management that's easy to deploy and intuitive to use.

Sapporo City Chooses Nutanix Enterprise Cloud for Application Virtualization

Grazed from Nutanix

Nutanix (NTNX), a leader in enterprise cloud computing, today announced an application virtualization project to achieve Internet Segregation for Sapporo City, the fifth largest population in Japan, and the largest city on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido.

As part of the local government initiative driven by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, Sapporo City is tasked to strengthen its information security by carrying out an internet segregation; a mechanism that prevents information leakage by separating the network connected to the internet from other business networks such as LGWAN (Integrated Administrative Network). For example, the city can choose to segregate secure email systems from other activities such as Internet browsing. As a result, a project was launched with Nutanix to virtualize specific applications and separate them from the existing environment.
