In January 2017, Ctirix acquired Unidesk, which developed the industry’s original and most complete layering solution that captures every component of a Windows workspace – OS, apps, and user data – as independent virtual disks. IT can deliver personal workspace by stacking layers in any order through simple point-and-click assignment and Active Directory entitlements. Effort is the same for one user or 100,000.
Citrix App Layering is an open Windows workspace management solution. It makes packaging, updating, and delivering applications and managing images across any hypervisor, cloud, or end-user computing platform fast and simple. With Citrix App Layering, applications and personal settings are delivered in real-time to the users who need them, at up to 80% less cost for IT. It’s the best way to manage Windows on premises today and in the cloud tomorrow.
Integration with existing Citrix, Microsoft, and VMware desktop virtualization platforms allows you to deploy Citrix App Layering in minutes on existing infrastructures. Whether deploying VDI with Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft RDS, or VMware Horizon, or published applications and shared hosted desktops with Citrix XenApp or RDSH, Citrix App Layering provides a customizable workspace that can be accessed through any device.
