The Citrix Presentation Server is a Windows server-based product that delivers Windows applications to end users. Applications actually execute on the server, where the application data resides, and a virtualized application interface is presented on the end-user's computer. The benefits of this product include the following:
- Data traffic stays in the datacenter, where it’s easier to secure
- IT can install, manage, and update applications entirely in a central location
- Allows greater flexibility for end user devices -- form factor, OS, computing horsepower
