More Info On Citrix Virtual Desktops & Support

Why would a company utilize Citrix virtual desktop solutions over installing their own virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI)? According to our experience, two major reasons come to mind.

  • Resource consumption. Citrix virtual desktops are hosted on a single, shared server (not that you need to worry about that, because we offer a hosted solution). By comparison, VDI is hosted on individual operating systems. This setup allows us to keep our costs and consumption down – allowing us to pass savings on to your business each month.
  • Expense of licensing. For a properly licensed VDI environment, data center providers need to provide dedicated hardware and licensing for each customer utilizing VDI. Because of the additional hardware necessary to accomplish this, providers have to bill customers a dedicated server fee before the monthly per user cost for each virtual desktop. By comparison, virtual desktop customers often only pay a fee per user, per month without the added costs for hardware and licensing. For Netrepid customers, that could result in an expense of multiple thousands of dollars more than you need to spend for the same desired results for your business.
  • Lack of flexibility. The individual operating system setup that comes with VDI installations often requires employees to be connected to the corporate network in order for IT to retain control over the security of the device. Hosted virtual desktops, by comparison, enable remote users to access their desktop profile from any location.

Deliver virtual desktops and apps on-demand to every user

Citrix XenDesktop is a desktop virtualization solution that transforms Windows desktops and applications into an on-demand service available to any user, anywhere, on any device. With XenDesktop, you can securely deliver individual Windows, web and SaaS applications, or full virtual desktops, to PCs, Macs, tablets, smartphones, laptops and thin clients—all with a high-definition user experience.

What is desktop virtualization?

Desktop virtualization is a set of mainstream technologies that optimize the delivery of desktops, applications and data to users. The operating system, apps and data are decoupled from the underlying PC hardware and moved to the datacenter, where they can be centrally managed and secured. Instead of juggling thousands of static desktop images, IT can manage and update the OS and apps once, from one location, then deliver desktops and apps customized to meet the performance, security and mobility requirements of each individual user.
