Enabling virtualized desktops and applications for flexible workspaces
IBM offers several virtual desktop solutions, enabling clients to deploy the most flexible, efficient and cost-effective solution to meet their business needs:
IBM desktop virtualization solutions with Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops transform complex distributed computing architectures into simplified, centralized virtual computing centers. With Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, organizations can update, patch or roll out desktop operating systems and applications once from a central management console. Because these cloud-based virtualized desktops don’t run on the local device, users don’t need the most powerful hardware, so the desktop refresh lifecycle can be extended.
The IBM and Citrix solutions make it possible for users to work securely and productively with a high-definition computing experience from any location. And now, organizations with 3D graphics software and rich applications such as computer-aided design (CAD), and data-intensive processes, can extend virtualization to these demanding, high-performance applications. Power users in research, design, manufacturing and engineering can be part of an enterprise virtualization designed to reduce IT costs, improve flexibility and protect intellectual property.
