Today's employees spend more time than ever working remotely, causing companies to rethink how IT services should be delivered. To modernize infrastructure and maximize efficiency, many are turning to desktop as a service (DaaS) to enhance their physical desktop strategy, or they are updating on-premises virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) deployments. Managed in the cloud, these deployments are high-performance virtual instances of desktops and apps that can be delivered from any datacenter or public cloud provider.
DaaS and VDI capabilities provide corporate data protection as well as an easily accessible hybrid work solution for employees. Because all data is stored securely in the cloud or datacenter, rather than on devices, end-users can work securely from anywhere, on any device, and over any network—all with a fully IT-provided experience. IT also gains the benefit of centralized management, so they can scale their environments quickly and easily. By separating endpoints and corporate data, resources stay protected even if the devices are compromised.
As a leading VDI and DaaS provider, Citrix provides the capabilities organizations need for deploying virtual apps and desktops to reduce downtime, increase security, and alleviate the many challenges associated with traditional desktop management.
At their core, DaaS workloads allow IT teams to provision centralized resources in ways that are more cost-effective and efficient than traditional desktop deployment methods. Users can launch corporate apps and desktops with a single click, and IT can leverage on-premises hypervisors or public cloud environments to scale with ease. The result is better security, lower costs and increased productivity.
However, cost savings and lowered maintenance are far from the only benefits of leveraging virtual applications and desktops. With companies increasingly relying on virtual apps and desktops to meet the needs of distributed teams, it’s critical to create an exceptional user experience, too. That’s why Citrix technologies go above and beyond to ensure virtualized applications and desktops are crystal clear and responsive, regardless of the user’s device or connection.
Citrix technologies are designed to provide optimized performance, ensuring that the end user experience is highly reliable—even across low-bandwidth or high-latency connections. This is especially important with unified communications platforms like Microsoft Teams and Zoom. Images are sharp, and videos continue to play seamlessly even when broadbands are overcrowded or wireless connections become congested. Virtual app and desktop solutions powered with high-definition technology will continue to perform just like their physical counterparts, in any scenario.
Not all DaaS platforms are created equal. See how Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops gives your IT team more security and choice, along with a superior experience for your end users.
Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service is an innovative platform that allows companies to securely deliver VDI and DaaS apps and desktops to any device, over any network. Deployed from the cloud for maximum flexibility, it supports hybrid environments with a mixture of public clouds, private clouds or on-premises datacenters—making the solution an ideal fit for even highly regulated industries like healthcare, government and finance. For companies that want the most hands-off experience, turnkey DaaS options make it easy to fully offload infrastructure and maintenance. Desktops can be provisioned to tens or thousands of users with just a few clicks. No matter how they’re deployed, applications and desktops act just like they would if they were running on employees’ actual PCs, and look the same whether they’re being accessed from Windows, Mac or mobile devices.
As a leading VDI provider for decades, Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops is one of the industry’s most trusted solutions. Innovative HDX technology ensures voice and video stay crystal clear even in the presence of packet loss, congestion, high-latency and jitter that’s commonly experienced with broadband wireless and mobile networks. There’s no need for additional infrastructure investments, and IT is equipped with a single master instance of desktops where the right level of secure access can be provided to each user.
