Move Over Citrix! Microsoft Signs Marketing Agreement with Jetro

It looks like Jetro is getting ready to announce Microsoft's support and recommendation for Jetro's solutions.

It looks like Jetro is getting ready to announce Microsoft's support and recommendation for Jetro's solutions. This press release with coincide with the release of Jetro's “Power Pack 1” for CockpIT 3.0. A “Power Pack” is Jetro's version of a “Feature Release.” (If you've never heard of Jetro, take a look at my server-based computing software product round-up.)

Power Pack 1 will let people connect to Jetro servers with standard, unmodified Remote Desktop Connection clients. It will also add support for end-to-end session encryption and deeper Active Directory integration.

This marketing agreement is not to suggest that Microsoft will be ignoring Citrix. It's just one more sign that even Microsoft understands that Citrix isn't the only solution on the block anymore. This is a good move from Microsoft's standpoint. After all, Microsoft gets paid whether people use Citrix, Jetro, New Moon, or just plain Terminal Server.

On a completely unrelated note, Jetro has finally decided to make their support website and KBs available to the public.
