Deploying applications on XenServer

XenServer infrastructure deployments and on-going management are simple and intuitive. Citrix believes this should also extend to the workloads running on top of the infrastructure. Citrix Lifecycle Management (CLM) enables application lifecycle workflows for the deployment, management and tear-down of multi-tiered applications via blueprints, and has been architected to closely integrate with XenServer infrastructures.

CLM blueprints define the set of necessary steps for the out-of-the-box best practice deployment, configuration and ongoing management of applications, such as Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop, or third party applications. Application blueprint deployments are included for free with your XenServer licenses.
