One of the most common questions I get from people who work with a UNIX environment is if Citrix can virtualize applications running on a UNIX platform. The answer is: “ABSOLUTELY!”.

Citrix XenApp (the new name for Citrix Presentation Server) can virtualize applications running on UNIX platforms, including Sun Microsystems Solaris 8, 9, and 10, Hewlett-Packard’s HP-UX 11 and 11i, and IBM AIX 5.1, 5.2, and 5.3. Additionally, Citrix supports over 30 operating systems with the ICA client including Windows, Macintosh, and Linux.

The Solaris edition of Citrix XenApp for UNIX requires:

  • Solaris 8, SPARC version or
  • Solaris 9, SPARC version or
  • Solaris 10, x86/x64 or SPARC versions

Be aware that the Solaris x86/x64 edition of Citrix XenApp for UNIX is available only on Solaris 10.

The HP-UX edition of Citrix XenApp for UNIX requires:

  • HP-UX 11 or
  • HP-UX 11i

The AIX edition of Citrix XenApp for UNIX requires:

  • AIX version 5.1 or
  • AIX version 5.2 or
  • AIX version 5.3

Then, the next question in everyone’s mind is: “Where can I get more information regarding UNIX support?”.

Since I know this specific information is not accessible just from one location in our website (action item for Citrix: improve this), below I’m pointing you to the main URLs where you can download documentation and the clients to get more familiar with our support for all of the UNIX platforms mentioned above. Notice that since we renamed the product line recently, we haven’t had the opportunity to update the XenApp name on all of our documentation (another ongoing action item for Citrix). Happy reading!
