The Citrix XenApp Essentials service combines the power and flexibility of the Citrix Cloud platform with the simple, prescriptive, and easy-to-consume vision of Microsoft Azure RemoteApp.
Microsoft announced the next step in its broad partnership with Citrix, helping us develop the next generation of the Azure RemoteApp service. The new Citrix XenApp Essentials Service (previously XenApp “express”) builds upon Microsoft’s vision of Azure RemoteApp by tapping industry-leading XenApp technology to provide additional management, user experience, and security features.
XenApp Essentials, the new application virtualization service, combines the power and flexibility of the Citrix Cloud platform with the simple, prescriptive, and easy-to-consume vision of Microsoft Azure RemoteApp. XenApp Essentials provides superior performance and flexibility by moving the backend infrastructure to the cloud, simplifying app delivery without sacrificing management or end user experience.
XenApp Essentials is the base service that includes Citrix Cloud StoreFront and NetScaler Gateway Service and will simplify app delivery news. You can provision workloads in Azure and deliver them to end users on any device.
Each user will be provided with 1GB of outbound data transfer per user per month. If you’re working in a bandwidth-intensive environment, you can get 25GB data transfer packs at $12 per pack per month and those can be shared across all users.
Citrix cloud service combines the simplicity of Microsoft Azure RemoteApp with the enterprise security and scale of Citrix XenApp.
