Linux VDA Image Service

Use this Citrix-prepared CentOS Linux VDA base image to quickly provision an entire machine catalog for the XenApp Service and XenDesktop Service onto a Microsoft Azure Resource Location – avoiding the hassle of installing dozens of open-source Linux packages by hand. By hosting an MCS-ready golden master VDA, this Citrix Cloud service allows administrators to jump-start their Linux VDA deployment onto Azure with the peace of mind of starting from a “Citrix validated” image.

Session Manager dramatically reduces app launch times

The new Session Manager lab improves application launch performance by pre-launching anonymous sessions when using the Citrix Cloud XenApp and XenDesktop service. This is particularly useful during “logon storms,” such as at the beginning of the workday or at shift changes, and in healthcare environments where rapid access to applications is critical.

Leverage a powerful, user-friendly tool for workspace automation

Based on Octoblu IoT technology, the Workspace Automation service offers a powerful, user-friendly tool for workspace automation, enabling easy integration and automation of a variety of resources, including devices, services, and people. With the intuitive drag-and-drop interface and prebuilt connections for Citrix and third-party resources, it's simple to build automated workflows that leverage the Internet of Things.
