Synergy 2018, Citrix announced that the change all products name. This is not first time we have heard that. It has taken over 6 months to change all documentation and installation ISO. If you plan to upgrade some of your Citrix product you need to know the new names.
For those of you that has not heard about the change, I have created a list of the most common used products:
|Old ProductName||New ProductName|
|XenApp||Citrix Virtual Apps|
|XenDesktop||Citrix Virtual Desktops|
|Receiver||Citrix Workspace App|
|XenMobile||Citrix Endpoint Management|
|Citrix Unified Gateway||Citrix Gateway|
Its two name change I want to highlight, XenServer and NetScaler. WHY? XenServer is now Citrix Hypervisor and NetScaler is Citrix ADC.
First, Citrix Hypervisor, isn’t this a bit to obelus? Boeing does not call the newest flight model for Boeing Airplane. XenServer is well known name and have good reputation.
Citrix. ADC. I understand. Less, NetScaler is something EVERYONE associate with something good and a product that work well. The Name has been with Citrix since 2005 when Citrix bought NetScaler. NetScaler has been the begin of Citrix Network product and has over all this year been one of the most known Gateway, Load balancing and ADC in the marked. I hope the name will get a comeback in the next 1-2 year as XenApp did 🙂
