Citrix Acquires Virtual An Android And iOS Virtualization Company

We heard from a reliable source that Citrix has acquired a small company we wrote in July called virtual. The company is manned by an impressive array of software hackers, claimed to be able to virtualize both Android and iOS enough to act as a means to check for errors and hardware emulation.

Updated: Citrix announced the acquisition of Virtual on Wednesday.

The purchase makes sense for Citrix, which could be used to emulate virtual environments using iOS or Android remote desktop. A company that could environments iOS ‘merger’ would also have a big advantage over the competition, such as VMware or LogMeIn.
The company’s founder, Chris Wade, was one of the first iPhone jailbreakers and built by a virtual open source iOS device emulator was co-created called iemu. We talked about Wade in July on virtual capabilities:

The idea was to get away from emulation and virtualization go on a large scale, “says Wade. Alerts allows the user to purchase a license to run a certain amount of iOS or Android devices as close to the hardware as real as possible. Says Wade managed virtual virtualize the ARM core and emulate peripherals that allow you to double up as almost every Apple TV, iPad or iPhone.…

Alerts may also act as a substitute for their services and goods physical devices Appurify income as the company has just been acquired by Google in its ongoing battle with Apple over who can offer the most complete set of development tools.
Another feature of Virtual is that it can be used to run iOS devices on OS X. This reflects the announcement at Google I / O to allow applications to run on Android Chromebook – but for iOS and Android.

Wade has also hired Nicholas Allegra, a hacker known as Comex iPhone that has produced one of the most popular jailbreak utilities. Since the last time we spoke with Wade, virtual had not given any funding. No word on the purchase price, however, I do not know if it was a young company had launched a product, then it’s probably a factor.

We asked Citrix acquisition and declined to comment. Wade also declined to comment on the sale of the company.

This is a get interesting for Citrix, which seems to indicate the claims of the company are solid. While I have shown the virtual technology in the month of July, I noticed that the demo was pretty impressive, but it was hard for me to control performance demands without a product launched. Say what you came to him that he was pretty solid for a big company in virtualization absence. It will be interesting to see what they cook.
