Citrix and VMware have BYOC

Posted on Thursday, October 16, 2008 | No Comments

I have written before about employee provisined laptops. Well today two articles popped up about Bring Your Own Computer (BYOC) programs at VMware and Citrix.

Our "corporate" image is simply a VM that you download off the corporate network and run on your laptop.
It saddens me to report that my employer has been unable to support my desire for an alternate laptop. All sorts of details about FBT and other things that are not really my concern, oh well, welcome to working for a big corporate. Of course, we can't sweat the little things.

There would probably be no problem if I payed for my own device. So I suppose we are more like VMware, although we can't download the SOE as a VM. Nothing a quick P2V would not fix. I like the Citrix plan where there is a budget for you and the conditions of having a support contract and anti-virus are more than reasonable.

I won't give up though. You never know, one day I may have enough money to achieve such things.
