Citrix Application Performance Management
With more businesses turning to virtualization solutions like Citrix, application performance and management become more crucial than ever before.
To keep up to date with the latest technology trends in virtualization and deliver the best cloud hosting services to customers, NovelASPect, a provider of Citrix QuickBooks hosting and cloud computing services, recently upgraded its new servers to Citrix XenApp 6.5.
NovelASPect has more than seven years of experience delivering applications using Citrix. The upgrade to XenApp 6.5 is part of NovelASPect’s goal of providing customers with the fastest, most secure and reliable hosting service.
Citrix XenApp is considered a standard in desktop virtualization and on-demand application delivery. Thanks to the advanced capabilities of Citrix XenApp 6.5, NovelASPect is able to deliver improved user experience to customers. It also makes it easier for IT to centralize applications and deliver them to any user in a secure manner.
XenApp 6.5 comes with latest enhancements including seamless multimedia experience over any network and turbo-charged application launches. It also includes significant updates to HDX MediaStream for Flash, offering greater server capability and improved experience.
The server upgrade also offers other benefits to NovelASPect. ICA sessions are created immediately upon user log-in and linger after users close their last published app. This feature is used to drastically reduce overall application launch times.
“We’re so excited to offer Citrix XenApp 6.5 on our new servers,” says Rick Fallahee, NovelASPect CEO, in a statement. “Our previous XenApp 6.0 servers were already among the fastest in the industry, and the new upgrade just places us even further ahead of the crowd.”
“We strive to do everything we can to provide our customers with the fastest and most secure servers in the industry,” Fallahee added. “We eliminate our customers IT headaches so they can focus on running their business. That’s what we’re known for, and our goal is to keep our reputation as the best in the industry.”
