Explore some of the key use cases for Citrix Lifecycle Management
Additional use cases
Configure the metrics you want to monitor and corresponding alert thresholds through application monitoring dashboards. Set triggers to enable redundancy, automatic scaling, or disaster recovery. Enhance IT operations management by automatically monitoring application availability, and provisioning and configuring new instances to meet performance applications.
Streamline and automate your upgrade from XenApp 6.5 to XenApp and XenDesktop 7.6 or later. The Citrix Lifecycle Management Upgrade Service will assess your XenApp 6.5 environment, provide a deployment checklist, translate apps and policy configurations from IMA to FMA architectures, and migrate data to the new environment.
Design, deploy, and manage application services from anywhere, on any device, though a cloud-based management console. A low initial investment and flexible pay-as-you-go model allows you to incrementally invest in the product subscription as value is realized. The cloud-based delivery model requires limited on-premises installation of software, allowing painless upgrades as additional functionality is added to the product.
If you have Citrix Support, you are entitled to the Citrix Lifecycle Management Deploy package. The Deploy package allows all Citrix customers with software maintenance to deploy Citrix-validated blueprints created by Citrix and our Citrix Ready partners.
Why Citrix Lifecycle Management
Built on a blueprint-based architecture, Citrix Lifecycle Management provides a unified, standardized set of management tools for rapid and best-practice-driven design, deployment, and management of Citrix workloads and enterprise applications.
Delivering a consistent and high performance workflow across the divisions of private, hybrid and public cloud is a massive challenge for many customers due to the highly diverse nature of these types of infrastructures. Citrix Lifecycle Management has demonstrated a significant ability to reduce time to delivery while simultaneously reducing costs and complexity for such use cases by providing a way to standardize deployments and configuration using blueprints that are built once and run on any cloud.
