Enhancing Remote Desktop Environments via Enterprise App Stores

Published on September 09, 2014

Many organisations have addressed the issue of providing users with remote access to the business applications they require by utilising Remote Desktop servers (VDI or TS/XenApp).

However, these approaches can pose certain challenges in terms of managing and deploying applications across the Enterprise.

Cloudhouse Technologies have developed an App Store that requires no player. From within their remote desktop environment, users can access and instantly run any application without needing to install a player, agent and with no other pre-requisites.

IT can streamline version control for all applications within a single environment whilst centrally managing licensing and usage and can dynamically configure applications with the right settings for each user from a single package.

Organisations enjoy all the benefits of Remote Desktop whilst users and IT alike benefit from a single sign on, centrally managed delivery environment for all their applications.

An App Store approach delivers many benefits, including:

  • Deployment of vanilla remote desktop servers with no apps to manage or update
  • On demand delivery of applications to users with conflicting versions of applications being allowed to run on the same server
  • Centralized management of licenses across all servers and PCs
  • Enablement of non-persistent VDI and pooled VMs
  • Delivery of a unified catalog of applications to users on Windows PCs and remote desktops
