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.
