XenApp® 7.5 versus previous versions

Many XenApp administrators who worked with previous versions of XenApp were a bit confused when Citrix decided to adopt the same FlexCast Management Architecture that was introduced in XenDesktop 7 for XenApp 7.5.

In the following table, I have listed the most common functional elements and their corresponding elements (sometimes, they are not exact equivalents) in the newer version:

XenApp 6.0

XenApp 7.5

Independent Management Architecture (IMA)

FlexCast Management Architecture (FMA)


Delivery Site (or just "Site")

Worker group

Session Machine Catalog plus Delivery Group

Session-host server

Worker with virtual delivery agent
