Liquidware Labs has released a new whitepaper detailing how FlexApp can integrate with the FlexCast delivery models from Citrix. Click here to down load the new FlexApp Integration with FlexCast models from Citrix Whitepaper.
What is “FlexCast” from Citrix?
“Citrix FlexCast offers a complete set of application and desktop virtualization technologies that have been combined into a single integrated solution. Because each FlexCast model has different
advantages and disadvantages, it is important that the right model is chosen for each user group within the organization.” From the Citrix Virtual Desktop Handbook
How does FlexApp Layering from Liquidware Labs integrate with FlexCast from Citrix?
FlexApp Layering from Liquidware Labs can seamlessly integrate with the Citrix FlexCast model. FlexApp Layers can be attached to both XenApp and XenDesktop in ways that are invisible to users while providing increased benefits and flexibility to administrators.
The following white paper provides insights regarding this integration along with some of the benefits that the FlexApp Layering solution can provide to Citrix administrators.
FlexApp Integration with FlexCast models from Citrix
Here is a sample of some of the key points:
Reduced Management Overhead
Instead of the standard approach of installing applications natively, administrators can now create FlexApp Layers and simply attach them during the boot process of the XenApp Server. The XenApp administrator can then focus on a reduced number of XenApp images which drastically reduces overall management overhead.
Reducing the number of golden images supported
Numerous FlexApp Layers can be attached to an individual Citrix XenApp server or provisioned to a Citrix XenDesktop instance. When the users access the XenApp instance or XenDesktop environment they are provided access to all of the corresponding applications within the FlexApp Layers. The goal of FlexApp Layering is to simply augment or improve the user experience within XenApp or XenDesktop while operating behind the scenes
