Application Hosting FAQ
How is running our software over the Internet different from what I do
Instead of running your software over your internal network,
you access it over the Internet. The application still looks and feels the same
as it always has. You just click on the icon on your desktop, open the
application, and start working.
The differences are all behind the scenes. Your server that runs the
applications, which used to be down the hall in your office, is now in a secure
data center. The information that used to pass between your desktop and your
server, across your network, now flows along a larger network-the Internet.
This frees you to work anywhere. All you need is a PC or laptop that connects to
the Internet. You have access to all the same software, databases, and other
information you would have if you were sitting at your own desk.
Won't working over the Internet be slow?
With Citrix, all
processing occurs on a fast server. The only information that passes over the
Internet is input from you (keystrokes and mouse clicks) and screen updates sent
back to you from the server. This offers a number of advantages:
Do I need a browser, or a particular browser, to run software over the
- Significantly less information than normal is transmitted over the Internet,
so the software runs fast
- Since the only software that goes on the remote computer is the Citrix
client software, you don't have to have a powerful new computer for your
applications to work properly. And it makes no difference if you are using PCs
- Hassles involved in upgrading software are virtually eliminated. Software is
upgraded on the server and is then available to remote users automatically.
You use a browser - any browser - to log on. You have an
icon on your desktop for your application, just like you do now. When you click
on it, the application opens and you can begin work.
What type of Internet connection do you recommend?
You will get the best results with a T-1 line, which is quite affordable now. At
a minimum, we recommend that you use a DSL line. Of course, home users and staff
members working outside the office can use regular dial-up access.
What applications other than my association management software can I
With a hosted solution, you can use any applications that you choose to have
hosted. With Citrix alone, you can use any applications that your organization
chooses to make available for remote access.
