  1. XenApp
  2. Citrix XenApp empowers users on-demand self-service for enterprise applications. Used by more than 100 million people worldwide, XenApp is an application building solution that virtualizes, centralizes, and manages all Windows applications in the data center and enables users to deliver applications as services, wherever they are and on any device.
  1. Main details
  2. In the past, the typical office environment was a form of ‘application distribution’ in which individuals own and manage applications, and as the type of applications used varied and became complicated, the cost required to operate them also had no choice but to increase.
    And in order to solve the shortcomings of this existing method, there is an increasing demand for ‘a method of supplying applications in the form of a service’, and as a result ‘application virtualization’ technologies such as Citrix, XenApp are gradually drawing attention.

    Because Citrix XenAPP runs all applications and data on a central server, it has advantages such as ease of user PC management, prevention of data leakage, and enhancement of the central management function of data.
    In addition, compared to a typical office environment, administrators can save time on installing, updating, and patching applications. In particular, in recent days, with the increasing demand for telecommuting and remote work, we provide a smart work environment that enables work anytime, anywhere.

    • Application audit function
    • No personal backup of documents required, centralized management for disaster recovery
  5. Cost reduction/ Green IT

    • Increased PC replacement cycle due to increase in Desktop Lifecycle, reduced management cost, and easy software management
    • Increased ROI/ Reduced TCO – Loss due to data loss and leakage, IT management cost reduction
    • Cost reduction due to reduced network bandwidth(actual data values are not transmitted)
    • When operating Thin Client, power cost is reduced by up to 80~90% compared to PC environment
