Today's employees are spending more time than ever working remotely—and it's causing companies to rethink and restructure how IT services are delivered. At the heart of these IT infrastructure changes is virtualization. Virtualization technology lets you provide the same reliable IT services that are traditionally bound to hardware, but without the need for extensive use of physical machines. It allows companies to enhance security, streamline operations and improve agility. These benefits are leading organizations to turn to everything from application and server virtualization to network, data and storage virtualization—whether on-premises or in the cloud.
For companies looking to support distributed workforces while retaining security controls and data protection, one type of virtualization is becoming especially critical: app and desktop virtualization.
This is where Citrix virtualization solutions come in. With virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and desktops-as-a-service (DaaS), organizations can easily reduce downtimes, increase security and address many challenges associated with deploying traditional desktops.
At its core, app virtualization allows IT teams to deploy centralized resources in ways that are more cost-effective and efficient than traditional desktop deployment methods. Users can launch IT-managed 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 virtualization with Citrix. With companies increasingly relying on virtualization to meet the needs of distributed teams, it’s critical to create an exceptional user experience, too.
That’s why Citrix virtualization solutions go beyond the standard list of features to ensure virtualized apps and desktops are delivered in high definition, regardless of the user’s device or connection.
When virtual desktop infrastructure is designed to provide optimized performance, the end user experience is highly reliable—even across low-bandwidth or high-latency connections. Images don’t jump across the screen, and videos won’t slow or stop completely because of an overcrowded broadband or congested wireless connection. Virtualization solutions powered with high definition technology will continue to perform just like their physical counterparts, in any scenario.
Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops is an innovative virtualization platform that allows companies to securely deliver virtual apps and desktops to any device, over any network. It’s supported by industry-leading hypervisor technology, with built-in hardware virtualization that works to ensure a high-definition experience for graphics-intensive workloads at all times. 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.
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.
Hundreds of thousands of organizations worldwide use Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops to provide an exceptional virtualization experience.
