Anytime/anywhere access to your business applications and data is critical. We’ve built our remote deployment strategy around the Citrix family of products, including XenApp, and XenDesktop. You can deploy applications – even single desktops – from a centrally managed server or load-balanced server “farm.” Application server hosting is the ideal access solution whether used for offsite connectivity, remote satellite offices or as the primary application deployment strategy for all of your corporate users.
The app icon appears on the local desktop exactly as it would for any locally installed application. The magic happens when the user clicks the icon – the application launches and connects to the hosted Citrix server completely behind the scenes. From the end-user’s perspective, the application simply…runs.
Choice of configurations
Citrix Xen remote access can be deployed in several device-specific configurations. Any standard PC desktop or laptop can use the Citrix Xen client to connect to the application server. Thin client diskless workstation devices can also be a great option (or even single users with specifically identified roles), completely eliminating the need to purchase, configure and maintain a desktop PC for every employee. There’s also a Citrix Receiver app for the Apple IOS, to connect users to Citrix Xen published applications using the iPad and iPhone.
