About Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server
By Shannon Margolis
Citrix MetaFrame thin-client solution has provided help for administrators
in managing applications from a central location and has granted users
access to those applications from just about any location. Citrix’s latest
release, Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server comes just one year after the
release of Citrix MetaFrame XP Presentation Server, and therefore the
questions arises as to the need of upgrading to MetaFrame Presentation
Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server is a publishing product which
facilitates people’s connection to applications from central servers.
People can have remote access to the applications from devices outside
corporate networks, such as their homes, smart phones or airport Internet
kiosks. This is one of the most important advantages of Citrix MetaFrame
presentation Server. From the end-user point of view, users can access
their corporate network from any of these remote locations and see the
applications that they would normally see at work, such as internal
applications or Outlook email, while accessing them in a secure
The enhancements present in Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server include
improved console and printing capabilities, support for Microsoft SQL
Server Desktop Engine, and remote server access. Some of the best features
of Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server include centralized licensing,
improved session reliability, improved user logon process, better
delegated administrative roles, the ability to hide applications, digital
dictation, support for large server farms, and enhanced Citrix policies. As
far as the centralized licensing is concerned, this software offers the
possibility of managing all Citrix product licenses from a central point
and it can be installed on any server. Features include managing and
monitoring licenses, tracking license usage in real time, and setting
alerts for license expiry notification.
As far as the session reliability
goes, you don’t have to worry about session dropping because of IP
connection failure or signal loss. Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server is
reliable in that the session is frozen until the connection can be
restored, and so nothing is lost. As for delegated administrative roles,
Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server addresses the need of having specific
delegation of administrative roles as your server farm spreads out, and it
does so by allowing customization of server-based permissions.
Familiarization with this software is a must for IT professionals and
Citrix Training courses are available in many formats. Some of the
providers of Citrix training have joined the Citrix Training Pass program,
which allows them to deliver any Citrix course at a cost effective price.
The only Citrix courses with an associated exam are those for latest
platform products. Any Citrix course for a product other than that may
still be available, but there won’t be an exam to pass, making
Citrix courses come in various forms, which makes it rather difficult to
make an educated choice about which Citrix course would suit you best.
Fortunately, all the information you need about Citrix training and
courses can be found on the Internet. Moreover, there are many providers
of Citrix training that will provide students with the knowledge and
skills necessary to pass any Citrix exam.
