Citrix: Digging into a New Citrix App Layering Feature: Layer Import/Export

One new Citrix App Layering feature has been released with little fanfare, and it’s worth calling out, since customers have requested this feature quite often: the ability to export layers from one virtual appliance and import them into another.

Generally, the larger the organization I was dealing with, the more likely I was to hear this request. Once in a proof of concept, the admins would begin to understand layer creation and storage and start to look at how to integrate it into their Dev>Test>Prod flow of app packaging. Sometimes, these three environments were completely (or mostly) isolated from each other and the policies within the organization dictated this separation down to the infrastructure level.

Prior to this feature, there was no easy way to a take layers created on one system and just “move them” to the next environment. Now, with Layer Import/Export, you can do just that: export layers from one appliance and import them into another. If additional layers are created on the source system, you can export/import again and only the new/updated layers are moved.
