Citrix App Virtualization
Partners — Citrix App Virtualization And VDI

With Citrix App Virtualization give employees the freedom to work from anywhere while cutting IT costs. Securely deliver Microsoft Windows, Linux, web and SaaS apps plus full virtual desktops to any device. Increase employee productivity and business mobility in a single solution, without compromising security. Deliver remote access while addressing privacy, compliance, and risk management mandates. Reduce IT complexity by centralizing app and desktop management and automating common tasks. Free up IT time and budget by simplifying app, desktop, and data management. Managing endpoint devices can be extremely costly. Sending valuable IT staff to individual branch locations, shipping laptops or loaner machines; plus the time it takes to manage each device when it’s time for a software update — the expenses add up fast. With Citrix App Virtualization XenApp and XenDesktop, apps and desktops are centrally managed in the data center instead of individual endpoint devices. You no longer have to touch every device to update software.

Allowing employees to work remotely or in virtual offices saves on real estate, energy, and networking costs.  In branch offices, there’s no need to have a full—time IT staff, because the apps and desktops live in the data center and can be supported remotely. There’s also no need to implement expensive WAN connections — a standard high—speed Internet connection is all remote workers need to access their apps, desktops, and data. This is especially important when migrating to Microsoft Windows 10 and managing frequent subsequent updates. Once you’ve implemented virtualization technology and you’re managing in the data center, you can achieve significant cost savings because there’s no need to send valuable IT resources anywhere if a user has a problem with an app or their desktop, it can be managed from any location, worldwide. Replacing your hardware every few years is an expensive and labor—intensive project. Imagine the cost savings your organization could achieve if you didn’t have to regularly replace PCs.

Citrix XenApp And XenDesktop

Only Citrix App Virtualization provides a complete virtual app and desktop solution to meet all your needs from a single, easy—to—deploy platform. Give employees the freedom to work from anywhere while cutting IT costs. Over 100 million people are using Skype for Business to communicate for work. According to Microsoft, 79% of enterprise customers in the United States use or plan to use Skype for Business for telephony—and three out of four Citrix customers adopting unified communications have chosen Skype for Business. Without proper consideration and design for optimization, virtual app and desktop users will very likely find the Microsoft Skype for Business experience to be sub par — but Citrix has the solution. XenApp and XenDesktop include the HDX RealTime Optimization Pack, developed with and endorsed by Microsoft, which allows you to publish Skype for Business as a virtualized application or within a virtual desktop — with the same performance as a local installation.

Enable virtual desktops on or off—line. Citrix DesktopPlayer extends the benefits of XenDesktop to BYO and corporate laptop users, enabling them to run Windows virtual desktops on Windows or Mac devices whether they are online, offline, or over a slow and intermittent network connection.

Citrix App Virtualization

Current SDN technologies operate at Layers 2—3 and are missing the opportunity to truly deliver on the full promise of the solution. The next—generation NetScaler platform unifies best—in—class Layer 4—7 network services into an application control layer, and can integrate this application control with both existing transport networks and emerging SDN technologies. This application control layer can make emerging Layer 2—3 SDN architectures completely app—driven, by using app—centric definitions and policies to simplify network design, while making the whole network more intelligent.

With its centralized management plane, NetScaler alleviates the overhead and sprawl usually associated with serving complex networking applications. Through intuitive workflows, administrators can enable provisioning and deploying of new network services on demand. The central plane also acts as a single point of visibility, providing a coherent view of the operational characteristics for all the instances running on the appliance. This software—driven approach makes it possible to successfully support the dynamic changes inherent in today’s cloud—based, app—driven environment.

Compared to the advancements in compute and storage virtualization, networking has fallen behind in fully realizing the promise of enterprise cloud computing. The dynamic nature of cloud services requires a new level of flexibility and scalability, which goes beyond the capabilities of today’s data center networks. Transitioning to Software—Defined Networking (SDN) incorporates programmability and agility into your network, enabling it to keep pace with business demands.

Citrix NetScaler was created to transform traditional networks into next—gen, app—driven enterprises. Designed for use in virtualized networks, it’s ideally suited to integrate with SDN and cloud orchestration systems. The platform combines the flexibility of virtualization with the resiliency, reliability, and performance of purpose—built network appliances. Eliminating the need for multiple physical devices, a single Citrix NetScaler can be deployed in a multi—tenant environment, while also offering traffic isolation and dedicated resources per tenant.

Administrators can rightsize instances based on the workload required per tenant, with fine—grained control over the CPU, memory, and SSL hardware resources, to achieve performance goals.

On demand cloud services and SDN allow organizations to quickly grow and transform to meet the demands of the modern workplace. Citrix NetScaler enables organizations to ensure the best security, performance and reliability whether workloads run in the data center or in an external cloud. By allowing IT to deliver every application workload at scale and with simplicity, organizations can benefit from all that cloud computing has to offer. Expanding the virtual network infrastructure portfolio.

Citrix and Cisco have delivered the Citrix NetScaler 1000V, a best in class application delivery controller that redefines Layer—4 — Layer—7 services. Building on Cisco strength in Unified Fabric and Unified Compute, and Citrix strength in intelligent, application delivery, the architecture runs on the Cisco Nexus Virtual Service Platform to provide a virtual network infrastructure that delivers scalability, elastic instantiation, and multi tenant operation, all with a common approach to service provisioning and management. The Citrix NetScaler 1000V is available via the normal Cisco sales and worldwide channels, providing a smooth migration path for Cisco ACE, GSS and CSS customers. Citrix NetScaler is the Cisco ACE replacement product recommended by Cisco.

From existing physical networks to various Software—Defined network models, such as OpenDaylight or a virtual network overlay, Citrix NetScaler can benefit any enterprise. Citrix delivers the same functions and features across all of Citrix NetScaler ADC platforms, physical or virtual, so that any of them can be integrated into an environment and provide the necessary Layer—4 — Layer—7 network services to ensure application availability, performance, and security.
