Bangalore: The new Citrix Receiver enables the users to run cross-platform applications, but without the mandate of installing the native OS of the app. The unique feature of Receiver drives virtualization to a new paradigm. Its usage is turning to be more prevalent among the users of BYOD across business houses.

The central storage mechanism of the Citrix's solution for most recurrently accessed business information could prove worthwhile, more remarkably during device thefts. In Apple mobile computing devices such as iPhones and iPads, the data could be wiped remotely in case of such catastrophes. Thereby, securing the vital data on Cloud rather.

The Microsoft office is sacrosanct for all the Enterprises, and hence the emergence of such technologies for enhanced amalgamation of multi vendor apps. Additionally, the Citrix software is available for download across varied architectures, covering Mac, Windows, and LINUX apart from being compatible on comprehensive list of devices. The Receiver renders these services through VDI or Virtual Desktop Infrastructure.

According to John Fanelli, VP, Product marketing for Enterprise desktops and applications, Citrix, "We believe more users will be using Windows apps on devices that are not running Windows."
He further stated that "The role of the Windows application is just as prominent, if not more prominent, but the access itself may not be running Windows."

Among its competitors, the apps slated to be widespread are: VMware View 4.6, Microsoft VDI with RemoteFX and Quest vWorkspace 7.2. But, the feature rich multimedia applications rendering could snag, although it claims to tap the hardware's graphical capabilities to a larger degree. The Receiver on a thin client activates the services through 4G or 3G networks to communicate with the centralized server.

Interestingly, the VDI management tasks on the server are executed through Citrix XenDesktop and XenApp platforms. The MultiStream ICA with RTP Audio and VoIP SDK are a few among the salient features of the Citrix's product. The client-side software boasts of lesser latency applications for streaming, along with improvised HD webcam support for seamless video conferencing. Further, the Receiver flaunts high QoS (Quality of Service) for the apps. Hence, the differentiated service, customized for each user type is a highlight of Receiver. Notably, the VoIP apps are built to operate on guaranteed QoS parameters even during network congestions and delays.

These developments could be more apparent through less jitter in transmission and the new release deserves a "high five" for user experience among its contemporaries.
