Containers simplify management, improve performance, and increase server density and utilization:
Run multiple versions of browsers, including legacy browsers such as IE8, within a single user session.
Containerize runtimes and plugins as Java, Flash, and .NET and run safely on clean server environments.
Continue using legacy desktop applications on newer versions of Windows such as Server 2012.
Turbo automatically eliminates compatibility errors between legacy software and newer operating systems.
Assign custom routing rules and network whitelists/blacklists to specific applications.
Containerized networking improves security by restricting network access to specific servers.
How It Works
Turbo runs applications in an isolated, user-mode virtual environment called a container.
The Turbo container engine emulates the legacy OS environment, translating incompatible calls as required.
Containers share the same OS as other applications, and behave and perform exactly like native applications on existing hardware.
Questions & Answers
What applications are supported?
Turbo supports containerization of all major Windows desktop applications and browsers, including applications requiring legacy versions of Java and the .NET Framework, and legacy browsers and browser plugins. Turbo also works with most custom line-of-business applications.
An optional Turbo URL Redirector automatically routes users to an appropriate browser container when a specific web site is accessed.
What versions of Windows are supported?
Turbo supports all server versions of Windows from Windows Server 2008 R2 forward, including Windows Server 2012 and Server 2016. Turbo also supports emulation of legacy desktop and server versions of Windows on Server 2012 and 2016.
Turbo can also be used with all desktop versions of Windows from Windows Vista forward, including Windows 7 and Windows 10.
How do we containerize our applications?
Our team will walk you through the process of containerizing your existing applications. All existing settings and customizations are migrated into the containers.
We also work with select partners that combine expertise in Citrix deployments and Turbo containers to assure a successful migration.
How do we distribute containerized Citrix applications?
Turbo provides tooling that automatically deploys containerized applications onto your existing XenApp delivery groups.
Turbo containers can also be deployed using third-party management tools or via command-line scripting. Turbo does not require any additional server infrastructure.
Why containerize instead of using multiple hypervisors or silos?
Turbo Containers allow legacy software to run just like a native application, on existing hardware, and with the same user experience, desktop integrations, and performance. Hypervisors and other virtual machine technologies require running a separate copy of the OS, which is slower and requires additional hardware.
Similarly, using silos requires that additional server hardware be dpeloyed and maintained. Turbo increases server density, reduces costs, and improves user experience by running all applications on a single server within a single desktop session.
Hundreds of organizations keep their software running with Turbo containers
When one of the fastest growing school districts in the US needed to modernize their administrative systems, Turbo was first in class.
"We moved our district’s Oracle Hyperion deployment to Turbo Containers. The users are happy and most are unaware anything changed — just that everything magically works."

When one of Australia’s leading universities needed to deliver educational apps to its 45,000 students, they turned to Turbo.
"You guys are legends. We have containerized hundreds of applications. I am continually amazed at how flexible the Turbo platform is. The number of variations and combinations is mind blowing."
Reviewers appreciate the power of Turbo's proprietary container technology.
"The upside is that you can assemble exactly the right set of components that you can distribute to your enterprise and have complete control over them."
When Tallahassee, FL needed to streamline government IT, they turned to Turbo.
"In less than a week, we had four of our most challenging systems migrated to Turbo containers. Not only did this provide us with a more secure desktop environment, but simplified desktop configuration and overall user experience."
