XenClient 2.0 Tech Preview: What Xen Client 1.0 Shoulda Been

As Citrix Synergy 2011, Citrix showed off and released the Technical Preview of XenClient 2.0. Full of new features, such as increased memory support for VMs, support for Linux (although experimental and limited to Ubuntu 11.04 x86), Citrix has also added a slew of new systems to the HCL, including a few desktop systems, as well as more laptops. I have installed it and am playing with it and can definitely say that it’s an improvement of 1.0. In fact, part of me wishes Citrix would have held off on releasing XenClient until this version. In my review of 1.0, I expressed these concerns already, but it looks like Citrix is moving in the right direction. There are some bugs, but again, this is a Tech Preview, and hopefully Citrix will iron them out prior to full release.

With that being the case, I’m going to hold off on putting out a review until the full 2.0 is released to the public. The new HCL can be found HERE, and the Release Notes can be found HERE. Lastly, you can download XenClient 2.0 Tech Preview HERE.
