The Citrix family of products and services centralise, virtualise and minimise the complexity of traditional computing – significantly reducing costs, improving information security, mobilising people, and delivering enterprise agility. Dynamic virtualisation turns data centres into delivery centres, transforming applications and desktops into on-demand services that enable users to securely and productively work and play from anywhere.
Citrix Delivery Center™ helps IT react faster to business opportunities with an agile IT infrastructure; cuts desktop management costs by up to 50%; improves security and reduces data centre and management costs.
Citrix® XenDesktop™ makes virtual desktops a reality for hundreds of millions of corporate employees. Unlike first-generation virtual desktop (VDI) solutions that were applicable only to a narrow set of users, XenDesktop with its new FlexCast™ delivery technology is the first product in the industry to support every desktop virtualisation model in a single, integrated solution.
This approach improves ROI, simplifies management and extends the benefits of virtualisation to every employee in the enterprise. With the full integration of Citrix XenApp™ functionality, customers can deliver on-demand applications as a seamless part of their overall desktop management strategy.
Calculate XenDesktop ROI
XenApp is an application virtualisation solution that reduces the cost of Windows® application management by up to 50%. Virtualising applications lets IT manage a single instance of each application in an app hub in the data centre. Applications are then delivered via application streaming directly to Windows PC’s for offline application virtualisation or run on high-powered servers in the data centre for online application virtualisation on any device or operating system.
Whether online or offline, XenApp ensures that users receive a better than installed experience through Citrix HDX technology.
Why Upgrade to XenApp 5?
Citrix XenServer™ is the only enterprise-class, cloud-proven server virtualisation platform that delivers the critical features of live migration and centralised multi-server management at no cost.

Deployed in front of web servers, NetScaler application delivery controller models combine high-speed traffic management via load balancer and content switching with application acceleration, content caching, SSL acceleration, web application firewall, network optimisation and application performance monitoring in a single built-for-purpose hardware platform.
Unlike other approaches that require multiple point products, NetScaler is an all-in-one application accelerator appliance that is easy to deploy, configure, and operate. Not only this, NetScaler reduces the TCO of web application delivery, optimises the user experience and makes applications run five times better.
All the extensive application delivery functionality of NetScaler can now be obtained in a virtual appliance. Organisations of any size can deploy NetScaler VPX on industry standard servers anywhere in the data centre. Whether installed on a single server or across all cloud computing data centres, NetScaler VPX provides load balancing, application acceleration, application security and server offload to become a virtual appliance server-based service that can be easily and dynamically deployed; on-demand and anywhere in the data centre.
