XenApp and XenDesktop 7.15 LTSR is a field-proven, hardened version of our combined 2017 XenApp and XenDesktop releases.

It is flexible enough to address the broadest range of Linux and Microsoft apps and desktops with operating system support ranging from Server 2008R2 to Server 2016, Windows 7 to Windows 10, RHEL, SUSE, CentOS and Ubuntu. 7.15 LTSR also integrates our groundbreaking Adaptive Transport technology into this release to deliver a high-performance user experience even over challenging network conditions. In addition, the XenApp and XenDesktop 7.15 LTSR product milestones align with our XenServer 7.1 LSTR CU release for up to 5 years of mainstream support and 5 more years of extended support.
Based on the pioneering Unidesk layering technology that Citrix acquired in January 2017, Citrix App Layering greatly simplifies application and OS management and is now included in most XenApp and XenDesktop editions for customers with active Citrix Customer Success Services Select. By combining XenApp and XenDesktop with Citrix App Layering, IT can more efficiently and securely deliver apps, desktops, data and OS layers on-premises or from leading public cloud vendors using Citrix Cloud. The layering technology “containerizes” desktop apps as virtual disks for error-free, install-free delivery to end users and package-once, update-once efficiency for IT.
