Enthusiastically I searched over internet for the possibility which I'm sharing here. Thought that this may be useful for people who like to explore.
To start with, I would like to present 2 major topics about RemoteApp:
What is RemoteApp
You can visualize the RemoteApp service similar to a CITRIX XenApp service. This service of Windows Server 2008 (or higher) gives the freedom to use an application installed on a server as a local installed application on client. One can connect to the server without actually logging in to the server (ofcourse with proper permission and configurations). For more details, you can visit Microsoft Portal.
Why use RemoteApp
RemoteApp has similar advantages as CITRIX (not all, but serves bare minimum). As a Smartplant Administrator, I see following advantages of using this features.
- Managing applications at one server instead of each client. This will make life of administrators a lot easier.
- Using multiple versions of same application without having headache of compatibility.
- Management of environments would be a lot easier.
- Upgrades will be easier and much quicker.
