|VDI desktops offer maximum user personalization of a persistent Windows virtual desktop that can be fully customized to meet the needs of your most-demanding users.|
|VDI with Personal vDisk pairs the maximum user personalization benefits of VDI with the storage optimizations and administrative efficiencies of single image management to deliver a desktop virtualization solution that meets the needs of both users and IT admins.|
|Server VDI enables enterprises and service providers the ability to deliver to an individual user a single session, server-based virtual desktop from the cloud.|
|Hosted physical desktops enable high performance remote access to physical desktops securely protected in the datacenter for optimal data protection, especially beneficial for graphically intensive applications that run best on a native OS that has direct access to the physical desktop hardware.|
|Remote PC Access (with Wake On LAN) instantly delivers desktop virtualization benefits without the need to migrate desktops to the datacenter by providing users with a secure, high-definition, direct connections to their office PCs.|
|Offline client virtualization (XenClient Enterprise)extends the benefits of desktop virtualization to people who need to work from anywhere including offline, by enabling them to work in a disconnected state thereby extending use case flexibility.|
|DesktopPlayer for Mac (Add-on*) extends the benefits of XenDesktop to MacBook users, enabling them to run Windows desktops on a Mac whether they are online, offline, or even experiencing a slow or intermittent network connection. End users gain freedom while IT gains control by centrally managing Windows virtual desktops deployed to corporate and BYO MacBooks.
*Add-on purchase required
|VM hosted apps ease Windows OS transitions and overcome application compatibility challenges in a multi-user, server environment.|
|Pre-launch technology creates a local-like app launch experience by expediting the session creation process. With pre-launch, a session waits for the user in an active or disconnected state, enabling quick, instant-on app access to an already active app session making for a fast and local-like app launch experience. Pre-launch configurations have been improved on the FMA platform, making it simple to configure from the Citrix Studio management console.
Available with Receiver for Windows.
*Feature of XenApp
|Session linger keeps the user session open after the user closes the app, to provide a quick app reconnect or enable the user to open a new app without repeating the logon process. Admin-configurable time-based policy automatically releases a license consumed by a pre-launched and lingering session to improve license management.
Available on all Citrix Receivers
*Feature of XenApp
|Unauthernticated user (anonymous logon) enables administrators to authenticate users at the applications. Employees get instant, unauthenticated access to a single app while access to other, more personalized apps such as email remains authenticated.|
|Support for USB 3.0 devices with automatic drive mapping and redirection provide users a plug-n-play capability with the latest web cams, microphones, headsets and other peripherals to enhance the user experience within published app sessions.|
