Deploying with XenMobile App Edition, XenApp, and XenDesktop

You can have users connect to Windows, web, SaaS, and mobile applications and virtual desktops hosted in your network. You can provide access to your applications and desktops for remote and internal users by using NetScaler Gateway, XenMobile App Edition, and XenApp and XenDesktop. NetScaler Gateway authenticates users and then allows them to access their applications by using Citrix Receiver or Worx Home.

Users connect to their Windows-based apps published in XenApp and virtual desktops published in XenDesktop by using Receiver and StoreFront.

XenMobile App Edition contains App Controller, which allows users to connect to web, SaaS, and MDX applications. App Controller allows you to manage web, SaaS, and MDX applications for single sign-on (SSO), along with ShareFile documents. You install App Controller in the internal network. Remote users connect to App Controller through NetScaler Gateway to access their applications and ShareFile data. Remote users can connect with either the NetScaler Gateway Plug-in, Receiver, or Worx Home to access applications and ShareFile. Users who are in the internal network can connect directly to App Controller by using Receiver. The following figure shows NetScaler Gateway deployed with App Controller and StoreFront.

If your deployment provides access to MDX applications from App Controller and access to Windows-based applications from StoreFront, you deploy App Controller in front of StoreFront as shown in the following illustration:

Figure 1. Deploying NetScaler Gateway with App Controller in Front of StoreFront

If your deployment does not provide access to MDX applications, StoreFront resides in front of App Controller, as shown in the following illustration:

With each deployment, StoreFront and App Controller must reside in the internal network and NetScaler Gateway must be in the DMZ. For more information about deploying App Controller, see Installing App Controllertopic. For more information about deploying StoreFront, see StoreFront topic.
