HP has updated its mobile client lineup to support the Citrix XenDesktop 7 release.
The company said that its mobile client line would include the new mt40 notebook client system. Designed to run with virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) platforms, the client system connnects to a hosted instance rather than relying on local hardware for its computing and storage tasks.
The mt40 system will sport an Intel Celeron processor and support for both 802.11n WiFi connections and Gigabit Ethernet. The system is equipped with 16GB of local storage via an internal SSD and will rely on Intel HD graphics hardware.
HP is also unveiling updates to its HP Velocity virtualisation management platform. The company said that the platform will have better integration with Citrix platforms, both for VDI deployments and other cases such as unified communications and mobile data services.
With the update, HP said that it hopes to better integrate with Citrix's new platforms and allow customers to better manage network traffic and improve throughput speeds for hosted platforms and systems.
Jeff Groudan, HP marketing director for thin clients, said: “As office workers become more mobile and more smartphones, laptops and tablets enter the workplace, the challenge to secure data grows more daunting.
“With innovations such as HP Velocity and our support for unified communications, companies can enable their mobile workforce while knowing they have the security, realibility and managebility of thin clients without sacrificing productivity, user experience or performance.”
