XenApp and XenDesktop 7.11 sind da!

Gestern veröffentlichte Citrix die neue Version von XenApp und XenDesktop - was ist also neu? Hier der Auszug der Citrix Pressemitteilung:


Day 1 support for Windows Server 2016

XenApp and XenDesktop 7.11 embraces the latest Microsoft platform offerings establishing the foundation for Day 1 support of Windows Server 2016, provisioning of app and desktop workloads on Azure Resource Manager and enhancements for App-V integration.


Admins now have advanced management options for delivering apps and desktops across geographically dispersed sites based on criteria such as user location, app location or user profile. Ongoing site management improvements deliver new performance metrics and alerts, easier self-service password reset configuration, and more provisioning options. This release continues to enhance the user experience with improved graphics rendering capabilities, new application delivery options for Linux, and profile management improvements. All these new capabilities and more converge with the 7.11 release to reaffirm XenApp and XenDesktop as the market-leading solution for virtual app and desktop delivery.


Leverage the power and scale of Azure Resource Manager

XenApp and XenDesktop is the only hypervisor and cloud agnostic app and desktop delivery solution on the market. At Citrix Synergy 2016 in Las Vegas, we declared Microsoft Azure our strategic cloud vendor of the future, further strengthening our alliance with Microsoft.

With this release, our dedication to Azure is now represented in our on-premises solution, as well as our Citrix Cloud solution with the ability to leverage your on-premises XenApp and XenDesktop site to provision, via Machine Creation Services, virtual app and desktop workloads to Azure Resource Manager (previously we supported Azure Classic). You can now create a new XenApp and XenDesktop deployment entirely within Azure or extend an existing on-premises deployment to Azure with the scale and flexibility required – regardless of the location of the on-premises datacenter.


Extending Microsoft Universal Apps to any device

Develop apps once and deploy to any Windows device—that’s the power of Microsoft Universal Apps based on the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) standard. These apps are a new set of Microsoft apps designed to provide rich, engaging experiences on a wide range of operating systems and environments, including Windows 10 devices, virtual workspaces running on Windows Server 2016, smart phones, tablets, IoT devices and more. Administrators can now publish built-in Universal Apps or custom-developed Universal Apps – all from the familiar Citrix Studio publishing wizard. Microsoft takes Universal Apps to any Microsoft device, while XenApp with Citrix Receiver lets you take Universal Apps to any device—Microsoft, Android, iOS, Mac or Linux—to deliver more value-add to your Microsoft investment.


Simplifying app management with enhanced App-V integration

By integrating XenApp and App-V, you can stream the same application package to every server in your site to ensure application consistency and simplify app management across your environment. XenApp further simplifies your App-V infrastructure by integrating directly for even more cost savings.

Now App-V applications can co-exist in the same isolation space for greatly simplified administration and maintenance. App-V applications are isolated by default though there is often the need for multiple isolated applications to communicate with one another. Now application intercommunication can occur within the same isolation space without the need to create multiple, redundant packages. This saves administrative time and conserves resources with the use of a streamlined App-V infrastructure.
