I use XenServer for virtualization, because it is simple in use and has free license. In my opinion it is also user-friendly and intuitive. Therefore I am pleased that Citrix expands its cooperation with Google. What does it mean exactly? Namely, XenMobile tool is available for Android. Both companies cooperate with each other since 2011 in providing virtualization applications for devices with Chrome OS. They also guarantee support for smartphones and tablets with Android.

What is XenMobile? This tool allows to manage mobile devices, data and applications (Mobile Device Management -MDM, Mobile Application Management – MAM). This provides required security as well as easy access to applications and data from any mobile device. This solution is mainly designed for corporations, because it is the unified EMM platform with very high scalability. It contains application such as WorxMail, WorxWeb, WorxNotes, WorxEdit, WorxDesktop and ShareFile. The names speak for themselves. Also RSA authentication and FIPS 140-2 encryption are supported, so security is high. XenMobile provides great flexibility from a single control packet. It simplifies administration, configuration and implementation of new solutions. Also, it is very useful during fixing problems of mobile environments.


Currently, version 10 is available. It provides better optimization of mobile users work, unified architecture, optimized data flow, flexibility and integration with NetScaler Gateway. There is one more curiosity. After downloading XenMobile image, you can run it using not only XenServer, but also other HyperVisors, e.g. VMWare, ESXI and even Hyper-V. Management is trivial, you use web-panel for this.
