New XenApp 5 release delivers powerful cost-saving enhancements
FYI – Citrix Systems, the global leader in application delivery infrastructure, today announced new enhancements to its flagship product XenApp™ that will deliver powerful new cost savings and a better user experience.
The full release can be found here: http://www.citrix.com/English/NE/news/news.asp?newsID=1687625
New enhancements include:
- XenServer as core feature of XenApp
XenServer will now be available as a core feature of all editions of XenApp, enabling customers to virtualise XenApp server workloads.
- Standardised XenApp server image
Customers can now manage a single, standardised XenApp server image centrally and dynamically provision to hundreds of XenApp servers across a large, distributed data centre in minutes.
- New user profile management capabilities
Customers can maintain and consolidate a user’s profile, meaning users will have a faster, seamless log-on experience.
- Local application virtualisation
Previously only available on Enterprise and Platinum editions of XenApp, customers can stream centrally-managed applications to an end-user’s PC or laptop and run them locally in a virtualised environment, even when the user is disconnected from the network. This means that XenApp customers no longer need to purchase separate licenses to enable offline access for mobile laptop users.
- New management toolset
This eliminates the need for third-party benchmarking software and ensures organisations are using server capacity in the most efficient way.
These new features will be available on March 16, 2009.
