Explore what you can do with Citrix Smart Tools  

Smart Build

Use best practices to securely and reliably deploy Citrix environments

  • Build new, highly secure deployments with ready-made Citrix blueprints.
  • Blueprints for XenApp, XenDesktop, XenMobile and other components as well as those from Citrix Ready Partners
  • Deploy to resource locations in the data center, behind a firewall, or to public clouds. 
  • Configure operational tasks to schedule backups and other management functions.
Smart Migrate

Easily migrate to the current version of XenApp and XenDesktop

  • Simplify the transition from XenApp 6.x and VDI-in-a-Box with step-by-step guidance.
  • Automate the migration of apps, policies, and settings to ensure a smooth transition to a current XenApp and XenDesktop environment.
Smart Check

Proactively diagnose and repair issues in your Citrix environments

  • Run regular health checks on your XenApp and XenDesktop sites.
  • Discover and solve issues before they impact your end users.
  • Receive notifications about found issues, the impact, and recommended fixes.
  • Maintain control by choosing which updates are deployed and when, using your own processes.
  • Aggregate several diagnostic and troubleshooting tools published by Citrix, including Citrix Insight Services.
Smart Scale

Automatically adjust server power to control costs of public-cloud deployments

  • Power servers on and off based on usage, load, and peak times to optimize your infrastructure, predict costs, and ensure availability.
  • Manage your capacity to accommodate peaks in demand or end-user schedules and behaviors with load- or scheduled-based scaling.

Make IT more agile while lowering costs

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.
