Citrix Products and Solutions
Virtualisation from the Desktop to the Datacentre
Citrix Delivery Center is a dynamic virtualisation system that transforms applications and desktops into on-demand services that enable users to work securely and productively from anywhere. Citrix virtualisation and application delivery revolutionise desktop management and simplify datacenter operations.
Application delivery accelerates business
Citrix Delivery Center virtualisation helps IT react faster to business opportunities with an agile IT infrastructure:
• Improving user productivity
• Rapidly deploying branch offices
• Quicker time to value for mergers and acquisitions
• Minimised down-time with business continuity
• Simplified regulatory compliance projects
Application delivery reduces costs
Virtualisation helps to reduce business and IT expenses by operating with greater efficiency:
• Cutting facilities expenses with tele-working and remote working initiatives
• Reducing labor costs with secure, productive outsourcing and off-shoring
• Attracting and retaining key talent with flexible working alternatives
• Simplifying desktop management to reduce IT operations costs up to 50 percent
• Reducing datacenter facilities costs and datacenter operations costs
The Citrix Delivery Center product family
The Citrix Delivery Center product family is composed of virtualisation and networking product lines - XenDesktop, XenApp, XenServer and NetScaler - to create an end-to-end system that virtualizes servers, desktops and applications, centralizes them in the datacenter and broadcasts them to users over any network as an on-demand service.
Citrix virtualization centralizes and simplifies the management of applications, desktops and server workloads to cut desktop management and datacenter operations up to 50 percent. Our HDX Technologies optimize the efficiency and utilization of servers, networks and user devices to provide fast, efficient application performance regardless of user location.
Reduce desktop management costs up to 50 percent
With Citrix virtualization, IT updates and patches just one copy of each application and operating system in the datacenter, rather than having to manage many on hundreds or thousands of user devices spread all through out the organization. Single instance management drastically reduces operations costs by making IT staff more efficient and virtually eliminating the need to travel to users. It eliminated the need to manage non-corporate devices. With application delivery, it’s fast—new applications are delivered in minutes not months, and updates to applications occur in seconds not weeks.
Reduce datacenter management and operations costs
Citrix virtualization and networking easily integrate with your existing servers, PCs, networks and storage and makes them more efficient. For networks, the Citrix Delivery Center can reduce bandwidth needs by 75 percent through compression, caching and optimizations; for servers Citrix Delivery Center can reduce Web server needs by 60 percent by offloading SSL and TCP connection functions; for storage Citrix Delivery Center minimizes storage and image management requirements through on-demand image streaming; and for PCs Citrix Delivery Center can double their useful life through application virtualization.
Virtualisation for Business Continuity, M&A, Compliance,
Leveraging application delivery from Citrix Delivery Center, IT can respond to new business requirements much faster, with much lower capital cost requirements. The centralized virtualization system inherently enables users to work anywhere—so teleworking, off-shoring and outsourcing are accomplished with a simple point-n-click. Adding new branch offices or integrating an acquired business is also a straight-forward expansion of the existing infrastructure—not a separate, new system with new hardware, software, training and integration. Compliance and business continuity projects are much easier, and less costly, with application delivery enabled by Citrix Delivery Center.
Leverage Virtualisation to Work Anywhere
Citrix Delivery Center provides easy, secure remote access from any device, on and offline, dramatically increasing user productivity and accelerating business agility. Remote working, tele-working, flex-working, outsourcing and off-shoring are easier with application delivery. Application performance is up to five times faster—reducing response times and providing a familiar, easy-to-use experience no matter where or how applications are used. Web applications, Windows applications and Windows desktops all work better and faster for users in the office (HQ or remote), when working at home or while travelling.
Secure by design
Citrix Delivery Center provides security that is a built-in property of the virtualization infrastructure from the datacenter through the network to the user, rather than something you bolt on at every tier of computing. Powerful and proven security functions including SSL VPN for secure centralized application access, an application firewall to protect sensitive information from the latest threats, enterprise Single Sign-On for strong password protection, DDoS protection for Web applications and tools to control actions and access to applications and audit user sessions.
