Xendesktop makes desktop virtualization possible. You can create centralized IT environment which can be used anywhere in the world. Together Xenapp and Xendesktop create a virtual platform which fulfills users’ requirements flexibly.
In the virtual desktop solution the desktop runs in the centralized server environment – only screen image and keyboard and mouse events are transferred to the user’s device. One user can have many desktops if for example there is need for different operating systems. Desktop can be used over the internet with any device.
Virtual desktop is up and running faster than the traditional workstation. Temporary files are deleted during the boot sequence which prevents desktop slowing down in the long run. Also the end user can install applications to the virtual desktop, if the user has required access rights. Administrator can also lock the desktop and perform controlled upgrades. Graphics and video are supported since virtual desktop can utilize the GPU of the terminal.
We do Application virtualization with Citrix XenApp product. We have a long experience in application virtualization. Citrix has started operating the virtual application branch with Citrix MetaFrame and this is the corner stone of Citrix in virtualization.
In app-virtualized environment applications are always delivered centrally. Applications’ required resources can be divided into internal and external clouds. In addition to simple applications users can also be provided with demanding 3D applications. This way the existing equipment’s performance can be utilized efficiently.
The application can be formed as a application package. The package is an isolated environment, which takes into account all the special features of the application and the required add-ons it needs. In this way multiple versions of application can be made and updated without downtime. Multiple versions of an application can be carried out on the same server without any separate installations. We use Citrix Streaming, App-V, MSI, AppDisk, etc. packaging technologies.
Mobile device management
Mobile devices are becoming more common in IT environments. Every IT administrator needs to manage also mobile devices. For this you need your own product. If your IT-environment has Citrix products, the only reasonable solution is the Citrix Xenobile. XenMobile allows you to manage your company’s mobile devices and produce isolated environment for enterprise applications and virtual desktops. Insulated operating environment allows BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) concept for mobile device use: The end user can have its own tablet device where enterprise applications are delivered securely.
ShareFile – Enterprise-level “Drop Box”. A cloud service which is also possible to place in customer’s Datacenter. It is a cloud service file system what you can use in all devices. ShareFile also integrates to your own file server and you can get your files safely attached to XenMobile. With ShareFile you can also build your own private file system cloud and you know where your files are located.
Data Security in the case of mobile devices is often a question mark. XenMobile has many information security elements. A major factor is the application-specific VPN tunnel (MicroVPN). MicroVPN creates private tunnels to just those places the application needs to get. With XenMobile is possible to translate native Windows applications as genuine mobile applications that can communicate with mobile device.
