Creating Dynamic IT Infrastructures.

Virtualization has become one of the most talked-about technologies in recent years because it breaks the "hard-coded" link between hardware and software, allowing individual computing components to be dynamically combined and reassembled for maximum efficiency and agility. AppCentral is one of the leading providers of application layer virtualization and virtual desktop solutions to businesses, delivering market-leading applications on-demand to end users at significant cost savings, without compromising productivity, performance or security.

AppCentral's secure, anytime anywhere access -- across all platforms and architectures through a Web browser -- provides supported applications including Microsoft Office, Intuit QuickBooks and Adobe Acrobat Professional together with hosted Exchange e-mail, hosted BlackBerry, flexible data storage, protection and back up.

Application Virtualization with Citrix Presentation Server.

A key component of Citrix' end-to-end virtualization solution, Citrix Presentation Server is the industry's de facto standard for delivering Windows applications with the best performance, security and cost savings. Through AppCentral, the Citrix Presentation Server stores all Windows applications in a single central store in the datacenter, and then delivers them to end users on-demand via innovative application-layer virtualization technology. Server-side application virtualization stores applications on the server and virtualizes the presentation layer to end users, while client-side application virtualization streams applications to the desktop and runs them in a protected virtualization environment at the end point.
