VDI: (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure)
the process of running a user desktop inside a virtual machine that lives on a server in the data center
a lightweight device without a full operating system with limited memory and drive
space. It is purpose-built for connecting to a server (typically cloud or desktop virtualization
environments) to launch applications.
an instance of an operating system that is managed centrally on a server and executed locally on a client device
computer software, firmware, or hardware that creates and runs virtual machines
a computer or a computer program that manages access to a centralized resource or service in a network
a device that controls access to separately stored files
a computer that makes data available to the client machines b y processing it for the client. A Web server is an example of an application server. It makes websites available on a client's browser. XenDesktop is an application server because it makes desktop and applications available to users on their client machine.
Server Centric Architecture
devices are connected to a server, and users get connected to this server to access applications and data
software that acts like a bridge between an operating system or database and other applications on a network
a person who actually uses a particular product
a large group of networked computer service typically used by organizations for the remote storage, processing, and distribution of large amounts of data
the use of a network of servers hosted on the internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than applications stored on a personal computer
store the Citrix applications, resources that are provided to Citrix users accessing those applications from the Citrix cloud infrastructure. Citrix sells access to different resources depending the services customer's needs
A cloud computing environment that is owned by a provider.The infrastructure consists of servers, applications, storage devices, networking capabilities stored in the data center. The provider rents the usage to its customers. the customer's data is stored in the provider's data center and the provider is responsible for the management and the maintenance of the data center. The provider makes their components available to the general public over the internet. Amazon and Microsoft Azure are examples of Public Clouds.
a cloud computing environment which uses a mix of the public cloud owned by providers and private clouds owned by a company with a data center on their premises. Middleware is used to allow the servers in the Private cloud and Public clouds to communicate. The Citrix cloud subscription offered by Citrix allows access to different resources.
Hosted Shared Applications
Allows users to execute an operate a software application entirely from servers in different locations.
A program that has its necessary components downloaded as needed instead of being installed ahead of time on a computer.
VM Hosted Apps
Allows you to deliver applications from the virtual machines or physical computers, including blade servers, running windows single user desktop operating systems . Allows you to deliver applications that otherwise must be installed locally or require extensive compatibility testing
Independent Computing Architecture
The proprietary protocol designed by Citrix Systems so that a computer with Citrix client software installed can communicate with a server that has Citrix XenDesktop installed
A set of Citrix capabilities that work together to deliver a high definition user experience of Citrix virtual desktops and applications to any device over any network from the data center.
