Citrix announced the release of Citrix VDI-in-a-Box 5.1.
The latest release of VDI-in-a-box delivers vDisk technology that allows end-user applications and data to be preserved while giving IT the ability to manage only a single instance of the master image. This version also includes several new features such as optimizations for Google Earth, support for Active Directory failover, and beta support for the upcoming Windows 8 operating system.
Citrix has also made available a license migration path from VDI-in-a-box to XenDesktop. Both VDI-in-a-box and XenDesktop use the same Citrix HDX stack and Citrix Receiver.
