What is Citrix XenApp?
Citrix XenApp is an on-demand application delivery solution that enables any Windows application to be virtualised and then instantly delivered as a service to users anywhere on any device. All virtualised applications are centralised and managed in the datacentre.
Flexible virtual application delivery allows IT staff to manage a single instance of each application in an application hub located at the datacentre. Applications are then delivered via application streaming to Windows desktops for offline use or run on high-powered servers in the datacentre for online use on any device or operating system.
Why use XenApp?
In use by over 100 million users worldwide, XenApp has a long and proven track record for virtualising applications.
XenApp has the proven power to reduce the cost of managing applications by up to 50 percent and allows IT staff to respond to application issues much more rapidly compared to delivering applications to users distributed across different locations and network links.
Compared to traditional application deployment methods, application management is improved by:
- Centralising applications into the datacentre to reduce costs
- Controlling and encrypting access to data and applications to improve security
- Delivering applications instantly to users anywhere
