Rev Enterprise Video Platform is Trusted to Enhance Citrix Virtualization Solutions
July 27, 2015, Herndon, VA – Brick today announced that Rev enterprise video platform has been verified as Citrix Ready®. Rev completed a rigorous verification process to ensure compatibility with Citrix XenApp®, providing confidence in joint solution compatibility.
VBrick Rev is a next generation, cloud-native enterprise video platform that enables customers to stream high quality live and on-demand video – using their own network infrastructure – in a highly scalable and secure way. The Rev platform uses the VBrick Distributed Media Engine (DME), an intelligent media server, to optimize bandwidth for video distribution. As a Citrix Ready partner, Citrix customers can now use Rev and the DME to deliver high quality video in a highly bandwidth efficient manner across their Citrix installations. The DME can be deployed virtually on the Citrix CloudBridge platform to optimize delivery of webcasts and live video.
The Citrix Ready program helps customers identify third-party solutions that are recommended to enhance virtualization, networking and cloud computing solutions from Citrix. The Citrix Ready program makes it easy for customers to identify complementary products and solutions that can enhance Citrix environments. Customers can be confident that VBrick Rev has successfully passed a series of tests established by Citrix, and can be trusted to work effectively with Citrix products.
Citrix XenApp is a solution that delivers a complete Windows application experience virtually, simplifying and automating infrastructure deployment and management across virtual infrastructure, private clouds, and public clouds, while enabling self-service subscription for users and departments. XenApp can quickly and securely deliver individual applications while providing a high-definition user experience.
