Citrix

Citrix Systems, Inc. is a software company that provides app and desktop virtualization and network delivery protocols for remote access. Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops is a product that enables organizations to deliver centrally-hosted applications and resources to mobile and desktop clients.

Lifesize has been tested by Citrix to be compatible with Citrix technologies and is now a Citrix Ready Partner. For compatibility details, see Citrix Ready Marketplace.

The Lifesize desktop application for Windows installs successfully on virtual machines, either Windows Server or Windows 10, running in a customer’s data center or cloud environment. These virtual machines are then used to deliver Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops. Collectively, the combination of the apps running on virtual machines and the remote access technology is more generally known as a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). 

Careful planning, configuration and testing is needed to ensure optimal application performance. For specific advice on the configuration, setup or maintenance of a Citrix VDI solution, customers should discuss their specific needs/requirements with their Citrix Reseller and seek advice from a Citrix Partner to evaluate and optimize their environment. Citrix offers various tools which customers can leverage to help with the optimization of WebRTC applications like Lifesize.
