According to recent market research by 2015 there will be over 27 million employees accessing business resources from a home office.
With growing demand for remote workers to be able to work anytime from anywhere,
Citrix based technologies can ensure reliable and dependable solutions.
June 2013 saw the release of XenDesktop 7 which not only delivers virtual Windows desktops,
but now also incorporates application delivery from Windows based servers, including Windows Server 2012.
XenDesktop 7 also supports Windows 8 desktops and tablets; such as iPad and Android devices.
Figuring out how it all works together for someone that doesn't work with it regularly can be a somewhat daunting task.
This is why Citrix Nerds is proud to offer Professional Build Services,
where an expert does the work to ensure it'll function flawlessly from the start.
XenApp 6.5 - Professional Build Services $750
XenApp 6.5 was released on the 24th of August 2011 and Citrix Nerds assisted some of it's clientele to become early adopters,
after repeatedly struggling to try to make XenApp 6.0 work reliably on Windows 2008 R2 SP1.
Finally, there is a stable platform for Windows 2008 R2 and we can stop recommending the use of Windows 2003.
The new look and feel is good and it works out of the box.
The new Citrix Receiver client works flawlessly with XP, Windows 7, iPad and Android devices.
HDX, otherwise known as high definition experience for Flash animation is native and eliminates the jerky video and audio experience
that had been common before HDX.
With a combination of the free Citrix Secure Gateway 3.3 and Web Interface 5.4 internal and external users easily connect to
iPad devices work with an inexpensive SSL certificate from RapidSSL costing less than $50 for 4 years,
while Android devices require a Thawte SSL123 certificate costing $172 for 4 years.
The Thawte certificate also works with iPad devices.
The firewall only needs TCP port 443 open and the gateway easily connects to all internal Citrix XenApp servers.
New Instant App Access features dramatically reduce the time it takes for users to launch applications delivered by XenApp.
Gone are the days of waiting 20 seconds to launch a hosted application.
Local application delivery permits instant application access and access even after disconnecting from Citrix.

and running quickly, centralized desktop management and universal client access from anywhere using any type of device.

We'll install and configure Citrix Secure Gateway 3.3 and re-configure Web Interface 5.4 to work with the gateway.
On your iPad you'll need to download and install the Citrix receiver from the App Store.
