RES Dynamic Desktop Studio works with Citrix desktop virtualization solutions to make the user experience more manageable, secure and consistent for both end users and IT administrators so that organizations can fully benefit from the adaptability that FlexCast technology provides.
XenDesktop with FlexCast technology gives organizations the ability to deliver multiple flavors of virtual desktops depending on end-user requirements.

RES Dynamic Desktop Studio enhances this experience in XenDesktop environments.
“XenDesktop with FlexCast technology is enabling our customers to realize the full benefits of virtual desktops, ensuring each user has the specific delivery model necessary to provide the desktop functionality they need to do their jobs,” said Mick Hollison, vice president of marketing, Desktop Division at Citrix. “The combination of RES Dynamic Desktop Studio with XenDesktop allows each desktop to be centrally managed from the datacenter and securely delivered to users anywhere they are located and on any device with a consistent, high performance experience.”
RES Software and FlexCast technology in XenDesktop provides a complete solution to maintain a unified and secure user experience efficiently and effectively, regardless of delivery model or endpoint device. RES Software Dynamic Desktop Studio is a centralized point through which IT can automate al of the tasks associated with managing and securing the user state, desktop, applications and data across the array of FlexCast delivery models, resulting in significantly reduced cost and complexity in managing the end user’s workspace in this new hybrid desktop environment.
