Where there are many contenders for delivering ‘thin client’ and ‘application virtualisation’ in recent years – the VDI revolution – Citrix has been doing this for the previous decade, building upon its MetaFrame product through Presentation Server and into the broadest, most capable, set of session and application delivery technologies.
Nexus uses Citrix solutions to deliver legacy applications on otherwise incompatible systems (your 1986 accounting application on Windows 2008 anyone?), for providing the most efficient thin clients to any device (i.e., Windows on iPad), and for reducing hardware budgets via low cost thin clients.
Citrix also has a suite of products to manage, secure and optimise the network, including the Access Gateways, WAN / NetScaler and Portals for self-servicing desktops or the creation of 100’s of desktops in minutes.
Citrix Xen range offers a lower cost option against the VMware server virtualisation range, albeit with a smaller community of compatible software partners.
Nexus is a Citrix Silver Corporate partner.
