Citrix DaaS (formerly Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service) for IBM

Self-service and managed cloud VDI for more flexible workspaces

Mid-market and large enterprises looking to enhance their on-premises VDI by extending or migrating their Citrix DaaS workloads onto the public cloud can do so with ease. With Citrix DaaS for IBM, your business can provide secure, digital cloud workspaces for your remote users – on any device, anytime, anywhere – with automated and managed solutions that skips over the usual migration and integration hassles.

  • IBM Mobile Virtualization Services is a services-led, open framework solution. As one of the largest Citrix Strategic System Integrators, IBM leverages Citrix DaaS to deliver a private cloud solution that transforms traditional desktop environments. Consulting services help clients design the right infrastructure based on end-user profiles; IBM provides integration and can manage the solution on client premises or IBM facilities.
  • IBM SmartCloud Desktop Infrastructure (SDI) is a robust solution based on a reference architecture approach from IBM Systems & Technology Group. Clients may run Citrix DaaS on IBM PureFlex, Flex System or System x servers.

Simplify computing

IBM desktop virtualization solutions with Citrix DaaS transform complex distributed computing architectures into simplified, centralized virtual computing centers. With Citrix DaaS, organizations can update, patch or roll out desktop operating systems and applications once from a central management console. Because these cloud-based virtualized desktops don’t run on the local device, users don’t need the most powerful hardware, so the desktop refresh lifecycle can be extended.

Optimize user experience

The IBM and Citrix solutions make it possible for users to work securely and productively with a high-definition computing experience from any location. And now, organizations with 3D graphics software and rich applications such as computer-aided design (CAD), and data-intensive processes, can extend virtualization to these demanding, high-performance applications. Power users in research, design, manufacturing and engineering can be part of an enterprise virtualization designed to reduce IT costs, improve flexibility and protect intellectual property.
