CostX & Citrix

Exactal is pleased to advise that, with the new release of CostX® 6.7 earlier this month, CostX® is now certified as Citrix Ready; providing the stamp of approval for CostX® interoperability with Citrix.

Citrix Ready The Citrix Ready designation is awarded by Citrix to third-party partners after successfully passing a set of tests demonstrating compatibility with Citrix. This certification gives customers confidence, knowing that CostX® can be successfully deployed with Citrix solutions without worrying about compatibility issues.

CostX® client can be deployed in the cloud or on-premise via Citrix using the following deployment models:

  • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) using Citrix XenDesktop
  • Application virtualization using Citrix XenApp

With any of these deployment models, the CostX® Server will also be deployed on a server in close proximity to the CostX® clients.

Citrix Partner Solution Advisor As part our Citrix partnership, Exactal has developed comprehensive guidance notes for CostX® deployment via Citrix and as such, Exactal has also been accepted into the Citrix Partner Solutions Advisor program.

Exactal CTO (Chief Technology Officer) Adam Lipinski states “We are very pleased to announce our compatibility with Citrix for this latest release of CostX®. This is one of the initial initiatives which has resulted from our strategic technical vision review, conducted last year, for the Exactal products. Citrix is an important way to deploy software to public or private clouds, so it was imperative that we had Citrix certification coinciding with our CostX® 6.7 release. With this and the various other ways that users can deploy CostX® in the Cloud, we are happy to be assisting our clients with new and innovative technology to help them improve their productivity.”
