Market Leading Cloud, Collaboration, Networking and Virtualization Technologies
Citrix transforms how businesses and IT work and how people collaborate in the cloud era. With market-leading cloud, collaboration, networking and virtualization technologies, Citrix powers mobile work-styles and cloud services, making complex enterprise IT simpler.
SR Cloud Solutions is an authorised Citrix Cloud Service Provider offering a number of solutions to customers, which include Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop, Citrix Workspace, Citrix Mobile, ShareFile Enterprise and industry leading Citrix Networking solutions such as Netscaler, SD WAN, and Bandwidth Optimatisation.
Reduce IT costs and increase efficiency with cloud VDI solutions on Microsoft Azure or SR Cloud
Citrix builds on their long-standing partnership with Microsoft and offers multiple VDI deployment options for Citrix solutions —including virtual apps, desktops, data and networking. Customers can provision and deliver workloads on Microsoft Azure cloud platform or on our own SR Cloud Enterprise Private Cloud Platform, reducing overall IT costs and increasing efficiency.
When deployed on Microsoft Azure or SR Cloud, XenApp and XenDesktop give IT departments the flexibility of delivering Enterprise-class VDI infrastructure services for Windows applications and desktops with the benefits of cloud elasticity. Both platforms enable IT to expand and contract computing resources on-demand. This elasticity simplifies management and reduces costs as customers only pay for what they use.
Manage data on premises, in Citrix-managed secure cloud storage, or choose a hybrid solution to meet your needs for data sovereignty, compliance, performance and cost. ShareFile on Microsoft Azure or SR Cloud expands customer deployment options by enabling them to store data in one of our UK Based Tier 4 data centers or on one of Microsoft's hosted worldwide data centers.
Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop
Citrix XenDesktop is a desktop virtualization product. The product provides IT control over and user access to virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) desktops.
With VDI, end users connect to remote desktops hosted on virtual machines that run on a server in a data centre or in the cloud, allowing them to view and interact with them using Citrix’s Independent Computing Architecture.
Citrix XenDesktop workloads can include Microsoft Windows desktops, Windows Server and Linux operating systems, as well as physical desktops. These workloads can run on a variety of hypervisors or public cloud infrastructure offerings.
XenDesktop vs. XenApp
XenDesktop is a companion product to Citrix XenApp. The two products share many features, except XenApp provides control and access for multiple users connecting to applications or session-based desktops on a shared Microsoft Remote Desktop Services server. With XenDesktop, each client receives its own instance of a desktop, and the desktop instances are not shared between users.
Simplify Management of VDI Infrastructure with Citrix Workspace Cloud
Citrix Workspace Cloud simplifies the management of virtual applications, desktops, mobile devices, and data sharing with its cloud-based management platform. You can choose whether you put your resources (hypervisors, VDAs, and StoreFront servers, for example) on premises or in a private or public cloud.
ShareFile empowers users to securely share files with anyone and to sync files across all of their devices
ShareFile is a secure data sync and sharing service that allows IT to mobilize all enterprise data and empower user productivity anywhere. ShareFile seamlessly integrates with workflow tools such as Microsoft Outlook and provides a rich user experience on any device to enhance productivity.
Unlike consumer-style file sync and sharing tools, ShareFile provides management and control functionality that allows IT to deliver a secure service and store enterprise data in optimal locations to meet corporate data policies and unique compliance requirements. ShareFile is a powerful service that is simple for IT to implement and manage and to fully integrate with existing security infrastructure and policies.
With ShareFile, Businesses can:
- • Empower users with instant, mobile and read-write access to data synchronized across all of their devices
- • Improve collaboration and business productivity through secure file sharing with people inside and outside the organization, regardless of data location
- • Meet corporate data protection and compliance standards via a service providing strong security and the flexibility to store data on or off premise, or both
- • Mobilize existing investments such as network shares and SharePoint through Storage Zone Connectors
- • Deliver a managed service that helps IT control the way corporate data is accessed, stored and shared
Allow Productivity While Securing Your Mobile Workforce
Until now, there have been two main options for meeting users’ mobility requirements. IT could either secure and manage all those devices, apps and data with a complex array of point solutions, creating management headaches and security silos, or require people to use different devices for different activities, leading to user frustration. Enterprises needed an integrated approach that would allow people to be fully productive while addressing security and management concerns. Such a solution would enable IT to secure and manage mobile devices, apps and data from one centralized point, and set app and data policies based on device ownership, status or location. Users would be given secure access to email, web and documents, and the ability to self-select the rest of their apps from a unified corporate app store—all with a beautiful user experience on any device. This solution is XenMobile.
With XenMobile, Businesses can:
- • Mobile device management (MDM) for configuring, securing, provisioning and supporting mobile devices
- • Mobile app management (MAM) for complete management, security and control over native mobile apps and their associated data
- • Sandboxed apps including email, browser, file sharing and editing, note taking, task management, and collaboration
- • Multi-factor single sign-on (SSO)
- • Shared devices - i.e. the ability to share apps and data among multiple users with MDM and MAM control
