Citrix to Host Second Delivery Center Live! Event: “Slash Costs and Simplify. Turbocharge your Datacenter”


Virtual Event Shows Attendees How to Simplify IT, Dramatically Reduce TCO and Accelerate Business

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTXS), will hold its second Citrix Delivery Center Live! virtual event, “Slash costs and simplify. Turbocharge your datacenter” on December 4, 2008.

Building on the success of the inaugural event in September 2008, this event will feature an in-depth look at the latest versions of Citrix Delivery Center™ products: Citrix XenServer™, Citrix® NetScaler®, Citrix XenApp™ and Citrix XenDesktop™. Through a series of live sessions and booths, the virtual event will show attendees how they can simplify IT to dramatically reduce TCO and accelerate business – particularly during these tough economic times. This event also marks the debut of Geek Speak Live! – the highly-regarded “unconference” that debuted at Citrix Synergy™ 2008 – gives techies a forum to get together after each of the key sessions for an open discussion/debate about what they have heard. In addition to five virtual Citrix booths with live, local language “expert chat,” the event will include sponsor booths from IBM, Dell, Intel and AMD. Register to attend.

Live Sessions:

* Double Your XenApp Efficiency with XenServer 5

These sessions will demonstrate new product versions of XenServer, NetScaler and XenApp, which all shipped in Q3 and Q4 2008, along with the industry’s most comprehensive desktop delivery solution, XenDesktop, which began shipping in May 2008.

The first Citrix Delivery Center Live! virtual event held in September – which focused on the newly released Citrix XenApp 5 – smashed industry records for virtual launch events with more than 4,000 registrations, hundreds of simultaneous chat sessions in multiple languages, and nearly 9,000 downloads of event content.
