The Citrix family of products and services centralise, virtualise and minimise the complexity of traditional computing – significantly reducing costs, improving information security, mobilising people, and delivering enterprise agility. Dynamic virtualisation turns data centres into delivery centres, transforming applications and desktops into on-demand services that enable users to securely and productively work and play from anywhere.
Citrix® XenDesktop™ makes virtual desktops a reality for hundreds of millions of corporate employees. Unlike first-generation virtual desktop (VDI) solutions that were applicable only to a narrow set of users, XenDesktop with its new FlexCast™ delivery technology is the first product in the industry to support every desktop virtualisation model in a single, integrated solution.
XenApp is an application virtualisation solution that reduces the cost of Windows® application management by up to 50%. Virtualising applications lets IT manage a single instance of each application in an app hub in the data centre. Applications are then delivered via application streaming directly to Windows PC’s for offline application virtualisation or run on high-powered servers in the data centre for online application virtualisation on any device or operating system.
Citrix XenServer™ is the only enterprise-class, cloud-proven server virtualisation platform that delivers the critical features of live migration and centralised multi-server management at no cost.
Deployed in front of web servers, NetScaler application delivery controller models combine high-speed traffic management via load balancer and content switching with application acceleration, content caching, SSL acceleration, web application firewall, network optimisation and application performance monitoring in a single built-for-purpose hardware platform.
Citrix Branch Repeater™ is a WAN optimisation solution that provides a high definition desktop and application experience to branch and mobile users while dramatically reducing bandwidth costs and simplifying branch infrastructure. Branch Repeater accelerates desktop and application delivery, decreases bandwidth consumption, and enables server consolidation.
