Application Streaming and Application Isolation
Posted on 2009-05-16
I had a query regarding the concept of Application Streaming in XenApp 5.0 on Windows 2003.
We have a couple of apps that conflict with other applications on a user's PC, so we provide them to users as a Citrix Hosted App. I have heard of Application Streaming where an application will be sent down from the XenApp server and the .exe will run on the local client.
From what I understand, this application runs in its own Application 'bubble' so can't conflict with other applications. However, at the same time, there is Application Caching so to save bandwidth when streaming the same App again.
What I don't understand is - if the Application is cached to a certain degree, then how can it run it's own Isolation bubble?
