The release of VMware Horizon® 6 with its support for Hosted Applications provides exciting new opportunities for customers running Citrix XenApp. Tightly integrated with Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS), Horizon 6 is a new option for delivering Hosted Applications and desktops, virtual desktops, software-as-aservice (SaaS) applications, and virtualized apps, all from a single Web portal and supported on the devices end users want to use.

This white paper provides guidance for planning and undertaking a migration from Citrix XenApp to Horizon 6. Three approaches to XenApp migration are detailed, including the major steps required for their implementation. Whether the goal is to migrate XenApp to Horizon, replace it with a new system, or simply integrate the legacy Citrix infrastructure with your Horizon virtual desktop deployment, Horizon 6 provides the technology required and a simple path forward.
