Additional use cases
Configure the metrics you want to monitor and corresponding alert thresholds through application monitoring dashboards. Set triggers to enable redundancy, automatic scaling, or disaster recovery. Enhance IT operations management by automatically monitoring application availability, and provisioning and configuring new instances to meet performance applications.
Streamline and automate your upgrade from XenApp 6.5 to XenApp and XenDesktop 7.6 or later. The Citrix Lifecycle Management Upgrade Service will assess your XenApp 6.5 environment, provide a deployment checklist, translate apps and policy configurations from IMA to FMA architectures, and migrate data to the new environment.
Design, deploy, and manage application services from anywhere, on any device, though a cloud-based management console. A low initial investment and flexible pay-as-you-go model allows you to incrementally invest in the product subscription as value is realized. The cloud-based delivery model requires limited on-premises installation of software, allowing painless upgrades as additional functionality is added to the product.
