F5 Networks Enhances BIG-IP VDI Solution Support (Citrix, VMware And Microsoft)


F5 Networks has announced support for leading virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solutions, including Citrix XenDesktop, VMware View, Microsoft Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, and others.

For customers using VDI technologies, F5 offers a unified approach to manage and accelerate network traffic, optimize performance, and centralize access and security policies. Unlike other proprietary solutions, F5 BIG-IP products do not require changes to the delivery infrastructure, thus offering a complement to all VDI deployments.

Support for VDI solutions is available today in version 11 of various BIG-IP products, including BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager, BIG-IP Global Traffic Manager, BIG-IP Access Policy Manager and BIG-IP Edge Gateway.

Integrated web interface service and support for Citrix Multi-Stream ICA are new features of BIG-IP version 11.1 products, also available today.

No additional licensing is required to support VDI.
