Cloud computing company Citrix
has acquired XenApp and XenDesktop solutions provider Norskale. Citrix, which has headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States, was established in 1989. Alongside cloud computing technologies, the company’s services extend to server, application and desktop virtualization, networking, and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) options. Its acquisition of Norskale adds considerable capability to its services, particularly in the area of secure app delivery.
Norskale is an infrastructure software dealer with a presence in Europe, Japan, South Africa and the United States. The company has more than 100 corporate customers that use its XenApp and XenDesktop application and desktop virtualization solutions. The Norskale workspace environment management solution complements Citrix’s existing profile management technology and by merging capabilities the company will be able to “deliver the best possible workspace performance” for dynamic virtual workspaces.
“This acquisition is one more way Citrix is delivering on our commitment to bring the best possible user experience and delivery performance to you, our dedicated XenApp and XenDesktop customers,” suggested Bill Burley, Citrix’s Workspace Services Business Unit’s Corporate Vice President and General Manager. “The new Workspace Environment Manager, based on the Norskale solution, will be available to all XenApp and XenDesktop Enterprise and Platinum edition customers with active Software Maintenance”.Do you know of any other companies involved in acquisitions?
