Additional Use Cases

Enable Virtual Desktops on or Offline

Citrix DesktopPlayer extends the benefits of XenDesktop to BYO and corporate laptop users, enabling them to run Windows virtual desktops on Windows or Mac devices whether they are online, offline, or over a slow and intermittent network connection. The type 2 client hypervisor features centralized management capabilities, including zero-touch provisioning, one-to-many patching, and role-based policy management for comprehensive IT control.

DesktopPlayer for Windows and Mac secures virtual computers and reduces the risk of data loss for on-the-go laptop users with features such as time-based lockout, expiration, and remote wipe policies. With these capabilities, sensitive information within the virtual desktop stays safe—even if the device is lost or stolen.

Simplify Application Management

XenApp and XenDesktop include Citrix AppDNA application migration and management technology. With AppDNA, IT can confidently discover, automate, model, and manage applications for faster migration, easier app virtualization, and streamlined app management.

AppDNA technology accelerates application deployment so that IT can make better implementation decisions. AppDNA lets you complete projects more quickly at lower cost, and reduce project risk, by gaining clear insight into application compatibility in a new or migrated environment.

Deliver Windows Apps to Google Chromebooks

Organizations are embracing the use of Google Chromebooks in the enterprise. But while the Google Chrome computing platform is ideal for accessing Google Apps, SaaS, and other cloud-based services, it poses a challenge for those who depend on Microsoft Windows applications for business. IT must give people a way to access Windows apps in the Chrome environment without sacrificing the seamless simplicity of the Chrome platform.

Citrix and Google have partnered to eliminate the separation between cloud-based apps and business-critical Windows applications on Chromebooks. With XenApp and XenDesktop, you can launch centrally hosted enterprise applications alongside Google Apps, SaaS, and other cloud services within the same Chrome environment, without the need to launch one or more virtual Windows desktops.

Centrally Deliver Graphics-intensive 3D Apps

Design and manufacturing companies are embracing a new approach to IT. Instead of installing CAD applications on costly high-end workstations, they are moving desktops, apps and data to the datacenter and cloud providers, where they can be securely accessed on-demand by users anywhere. Apps and desktops run centrally on either virtual or physical machines freeing people to work on any device they choose—even a tablet. Network optimizations ensure an experience that looks, feels and acts like a traditional high-end PC no matter what the access type.

The most complete and effective virtualization solution for 3D apps comes from Citrix, the longtime leader in virtualization and mobile workstyles. Accessible on any device, the solution provides compression and graphics acceleration technologies to optimize professional 3D graphics apps over low-bandwidth, high-latency networks. Designed for seamless integration and proven in demanding production environments, the Citrix solution combines high performance with simplicity and manageability unmatched by point solutions or piecemeal strategies.
