Citrix: What’s New in XenApp Essentials – Q2 CY2017
We are absolutely thrilled by the response to XenApp Essentials. It is great to see XenApp Essentials become one of the top trending apps in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. More importantly, I am happy to report that multiple Azure RemoteApp customers, who were eagerly looking forward for a replacement solution, have migrated successfully to XenApp Essentials and have reported improved user experience for their end users.
While these are great early signs, we are not resting on these successes. Our development team continues to improve the overall solution to bring you more value and functionality. We have had multiple updates since our April 3 launch, which not only helped improve the overall reliability and supportability of the solution but also added significant new value to our customers. This post is a first in a new blog series that highlights the key features added to XenApp Essentials. In this post, I specifically want to focus on the following top-requested features from our existing XenApp Essentials customers:

Thus, premium disks are a great way to improve end user experience when delivering I/O intensive applications using XenApp Essentials. The XenApp Essentials service also now supports uploading of master images created using premium storage.
