AppDNA released a beta of AppTitude Virtualization Manager for Citrix XenApp and is working with the company on application compatibility testing for its XenApp product line. AppTitude for Citrix XenApp is designed to make it easier for partners and customers to deliver applications via XenApp – either hosted on the server or streamed directly to the user’s device.
AppDNA’s AppTitude 3.0 is an application compatibility testing solution that can help organizations to determine the optimal method of application delivery. AppTitude 3.0 provides business benefits that were never before possible, including vastly reducing the time, costs and risks associated with deployment of operating system migrations, software upgrades and virtualization.
With its ability to test for a number of new server-related functions, AppTitude 3.0 provides a single view of essential information on every application across the enterprise regarding suitability for virtualization, including XenApp and Microsoft Windows Terminal Services. AppTitude 3.0 also flags applications with potential interoperability and overlap issues.
The new AppTitude 3.0 release includes the AppTitude Virtualization Manager for Citrix XenApp, which allows organizations to rapidly move to XenApp by automatically identifying potential application compatibility issues and recommending actions to fix them. AppTitude 3.0 can test for application compatibility with XenApp versions 3.0 through 5. Included in the product are two types of analysis: static and run-time. AppTitude 3.0 also supports overlap analysis showing whether or not a particular application can be installed on a given server by checking for shared resources, such as file and registry keys. With these new capabilities the product is a highly-effective tool for Citrix XenApp server farm planning and management.
