CENTRALIZED DESKTOP
INFRASTRUCTURE (CDI)

Empower the modern digital workspace with our Citrix-ready CDI portfolio that secures the delivery of applications to any device, centralizes management in the data center, and reduces costs. Featuring Blade PCs and Thin Clients, enterprises have the freedom to choose the deployment strategy that best aligns with their enterprise IT vision.

CDI offers the many advantages of VDI without the staff training, multiple layering, adjustments, verification, and administration headaches. This is the ultimate answer to uncompromising environments where users running time and mission-critical applications and implementing graphics-intensive rendering must not share processing, memory, or storage.

The range clears the cube of the PC that is redundant in today’s era of digital transformation. It enables users to embrace a whole new approach to IT, especially in fast-paced deployments where installing business-critical applications on costly, high-end workstations does not make sense anymore. Instead, the portfolio moves applications, desktops, and data to the data center, providing secure, on-demand access anywhere and anytime.

With apps and desktops running centrally, workers are no longer burdened by PC limitations. Network optimizations deliver an end user experience that acts, looks, and feels like a traditional computer – regardless of the access type.

CDI is meaningful because of its long-standing position in facilitating smart, mobile workstyles. The portfolio facilitates graphics acceleration technologies to optimize professional graphics applications over low-bandwidth, high-latency networks. Designed for seamless integration and proven in the most challenging circumstances, CDI blends simplicity and high-performance to deliver truly dynamic computing efficiencies.

VIRTUALIZED DESKTOP
INFRASTRUCTURE (VDI)

Industry verticals have undergone radical changes in the past decade, and technology disruption pushes businesses to create a sustainable strategy that can keep their IT departments running. Add the reality of use case diversity, and it becomes clear that enterprises must seek a resilient platform that enables adaptability without involving any forklift overhauls.

The ClearCube way of virtualization, coupled with Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, serves as an investment protection safety net. In addition to providing management and ergonomic benefits, it offers the compatibility and performance comfort levels associated with physical desktop environments. This approach guarantees an easy transition to efficiently managed, cost-saving virtualization for basic, medium, and high-performance use cases.

The Citrix stack integrates compute, storage, and networking resources into a complete solution that offers efficient performance and an unparalleled user experience. SmartVDI™ host platform accelerates the shift to private desktop cloud computing with simplicity, robust storage capabilities, and huge cost-savings. Enable your administrators to handle advanced, high availability configurations with similar personalization features as physical desktops. Satisfy the most graphically-intensive use cases with NVIDIA GRID™ technology and PCoIP hardware accelerators. Offer impressive customer value and performance with fully persistent desktops, and the widest range of dual and quad display Zero Client options.

Need to drive down escalating support costs by allowing for highly effective remote support of the entire desktop infrastructure? You got it. Interested in blending cost reduction with a medium for flexible working practices and a quantifiable drop in energy consumption? It is within your reach. Our solutions put in place user-appropriate desktop services, along with considerable resilience and bandwidth, to drive business agility.

CENTRALIZED AND VIRTUALIZED DESKTOP INFRASTRUCTURE (CVDI)

Why Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops-based CVDI? Centralization and virtualization initiatives embody the future of work by synchronizing traditional, dedicated IT hardware with the security, flexibility, and optimization capabilities of VDI. The solution delivers results in the form of lower overall total cost of operation and desktop management overhead, as well as improved worker productivity.

CVDI addresses the anxiety-inducing move from a distributed PC setup to a fully virtualized infrastructure, today’s technology standard that drives the digital transformation movement. Integrating these initiatives into routine operational modes enables IT resources to become robust enough to handle any application. Designed with growth and change in mind, CVDI future-proofs IT integration by expanding the functionality of computer systems without major architecture modifications.

Our years of experience in moving desktops to the data center has revealed that a hybrid solution is ideal, regardless of the worker type. With small footprint Zero Clients, no data is transferred to the desktop, and everyone benefits from stateless security. Zero Client users can access the resources they are assigned, with full flexibility to access a physical desktop on a PC Blade or a virtual desktop on the SmartVDI™ host platform from the same device.

Thin Clients

A thin client is a lightweight computer that has been optimized for establishing a remote connection with a server-based computing environment. The server does most of the work, which can include launching software programs, crunching numbers, and storing data. This contrast with a fat client or a conventional personal computer; the former is also intended for working in a client–server model but has significant local processing power, while the latter aims to perform its function mostly locally.

Zero+ Clients

A Zero Client is a form of ultra-Thin Client device with little to no processing, memory and storage parts. This endpoint incorporates a purpose-built processor to transmit pixels instead of data to the end user’s desktop. A typical Zero Client integrates high-quality multimedia and delivers a PC-like user experience in Virtual Desktop Infrastructure VDI environments.

Blade Pcs & Workstations

A blade PC is a form of client or personal computer (PC). In conjunction with a client access device (usually a thin client) on a user’s desk, the supporting blade PC is typically housed in a rack enclosure, usually in a datacenter or specialised environment. Together, they accomplish many of the same functions of a traditional PC, but they also take advantage of many of the architectural achievements pioneered by blade servers.
