Citrix Delivery Center
The Industry’s First End-to-End Application Delivery Infrastructure System
Nearly every business process today relies on applications. Most IT organizations continue to deploy and install applications, although Industry analysts advise that traditional application deployment is too complex, too static, and costs too much just to maintain, let alone try to keep up with changes in the business.

A Dynamic Application Delivery System
Citrix offers a new and different approach – Citrix Delivery Center – the first solution on the market that delivers applications and desktops to any user, anytime, anywhere from a secure central location. Citrix Delivery Center’s market leading application delivery technologies enable IT to dramatically improve agility, while enabling the best performance and highest security at the lowest cost.

Application Delivery is the Business Enabler
Citrix Delivery Center is dynamic infrastructure that transforms the datacenter from a static, production-oriented facility to a dynamic, service-oriented delivery center. What if you could:
  • Get new employees productive with their desktop and applications in seconds
  • Instantly adjust application server workloads in response changes in customer demand

Virtualisation - Core Technology for Application Delivery
Virtualisation is recognized as the most transformative IT technology of the next decade. However to truly impact the business, server virtualisation is not enough - IT requires the power of virtualisation from the datacenter for servers and applications all the way to the desktop. Citrix Delivery Center offers the most comprehensive end-to-end virtualisation solutions, with server, application and desktop virtualisation – purpose built to enable IT to deliver applications to users anywhere.

Delivering Applications is a Defining Issue for IT
As IT organizations struggle to keep pace with the demands of business, application delivery is a major priority for CIOs around the world. Industry experts agree the time is right to make the move from static application deployment to dynamic application delivery.

Citrix XenDesktop - Desktop Virtualisation Solution
Time to rethink traditional desktop deployment
XenDesktop Express

For IT organizations, desktop management today is manual, time-consuming and expensive. Ensuring data security and regulatory compliance is complex when desktops are distributed around the globe. And business continuity is difficult to implement when users are tied to their physical PCs. For users, the longer they have to keep their PCs, the more the performance degrades as patches and app updates inevitably cause bloat. The alternative is to replace or re-image the machines, meaning disruptions and loss of productivity.

Is desktop virtualisation the answer?
First-generation desktop virtualisation technologies enable the centralization of desktops by creating virtual desktops in the datacenter, which makes them easier to secure and backup. However, many of the same desktop lifecycle management issues persist – IT still needs an efficient virtual desktop manager to manage, maintain and update each virtual desktop image, along with all its installed applications and user settings. In addition, many first attempts at desktop virtualisation introduced new challenges – most notably, degraded user experience over networks and the high costs of networked storage needed for each user’s desktop image.
