Citrix XenApp is the de facto standard for on-demand application delivery. XenApp allows any Windows application to be virtualized, centralized, and managed in the datacenter and instantly delivered as a service to users anywhere on virtually any client device. XenApp is used by over 100 million users worldwide.
Why deliver applications on demand?
Virtual application delivery lets IT manage a single instance of each application in the data center. Applications can then be streamed on demand to any or all of:
- Powerful XenApp servers in the datacenter where they can be remotely – and securely – accessed by clients using PCs, Macs, laptops, thin clients, tablets, or smartphones.
- Virtual instances of Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7 running on the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure of the organization’s choice.
- Desktop or laptop PCs on the local network, where the applications are then executed locally. This is particularly useful for laptop/notebook PC users, who can disconnect their systems from the local network and continue to use the applications for a period of time (configurable by management) once they have been streamed down.
Why choose XenApp for on-demand application delivery?
XenApp allows users to get to the data and applications they need to be productive, but also gives IT the ability to control, at a granular level, the security of that data – including whether data can be copied to a disk drive on the client device or printed on a client-attached printer. If need be, IT can insure that sensitive data never leaves the data center, and that all access to it is secure and encrypted.
XenApp insures that users receive the highest quality experience through Citrix HDXTM technology. HDX adapts virtual application delivery and access based on each user’s device, network, and location to ensure the best possible experience, even for demanding, graphically intense applications. And the Citrix Receiver now delivers applications to over 30 client operating systems, diversity that is unmatched by any other application delivery system.
