Citrix on Monday outlined that its latest XenDesktop 7 virtualization software will be available on Microsoft's Windows Azure cloud platform.

With the move, XenDesktop's remote desktop services on Azure sessions can have live roaming and multiple devices.

XenDesktop 7 was outlined at Citrix's Synergy confab in May. Adding a cloud session option will give Citrix another deployment model for virtual desktops.

For Citrix, Azure support gives XenDesktop more of an audience among smaller enterprises as cloud computing grows. Enterprise customers will have a familiar Windows Azure experience and optimization for Microsoft workloads.
