Azure RemoteApp is an offering on the Microsoft Azure platform to deliver Windows applications using a thin client. Any Windows application installed on an Azure VM image could be delivered for a monthly fee to Windows, Mac, iOS and Android platforms. The number of VM's provisioned was automatically managed on-demand.
Today, Microsoft announced that it had decided to "wind down" the Azure RemoteApp offering and touted an alternative product by Citrix — XenApp "Express" which is still in development. An email to existing subscribers stated the following:
"New trials and purchases of Azure RemoteApp are no longer available as of now. Existing paid customers actively using Azure RemoteApp can use the service one year past our announcement date, so that they can migrate with minimal business disruption".
No pricing, or expected availablity of the Citrix XenApp "Express" were provided. Seems like adopters of RemoteApp are now in for a period of uncertainty.
