7 XenApp Deliver Windows apps as an on-demand service Low Cost I Self-service I Secure

8 XenApp Any Windows app Self-service enterprise app store Hosted or streamed app delivery Granular access control

9 XenApp 230,000 Customers Penetration less than 15% 11M licences current on SA 3M licenses with expired SA The best way to deliver Windows applications

10 Access Windows, web or SaaS apps

11 Reduce application management cost by 50% Analysis of XenApp implementations Benefits over 3 year period TCO savings from $890K to $6.5M ROI of 232% to 392% Payback period from 7 to 13 months

12 Deliver apps to any user, device and location Universal client for IT services Simple, fast, self-service install Software always up-to-date PCs, Macs, laptops, netbooks, thin clients, & smartphones

13 Ensure a high definition experience Optimize and accelerate application performance over any network Deliver advanced multimedia performance regardless of device Enable seamless access to local resources and peripheral devices Leverage computing capacity of devices to optimize user experience

14 Enable maximum IT control Control which apps can be accessed by specific users and dynamically change based on device, location and profile settings Monitor and record user activity to meet regulatory compliance and security audits Understand performance trends and bottlenecks and system usage/user habits

15 Ensure security and eliminate business risk Protect data by centrally storing in the datacenter, not on user devices Allow only authorized users to connect to applications and data Centrally encrypt and enforce password policies Monitor, analyze and log user interaction with applications

16 IT as a strategic enabler of the business Transition IT from a cost center to a business center Respond faster to business needs Cut IT costs across the board Increase employee productivity and job satisfaction Safeguard intellectual property

33 XenDesktop easy solution Corporate owned laptops IT wants all the central management and security benefits of VDI for laptop users, but Offline VDI is complex, slow and impractical. XenClient Bare metal hypervisor jointly developed with Intel and supported by major laptop vendors

34 Business VM Data Settings In the event of loss or failure Users environment can be restored to any XenClient device Business VM Data Settings Applications Personal VM User changes automatically backed up Applications OS Synchronizer Multiple VMs OS XenClient Secure bare metal hypervisor Hardware Encrypted and secured

35 XenClient XenDesktop Synchronizer

36 What is XenClient technology? XenClient technology Compatible laptop & desktop hardware Type 1 hypervisor: High performance because it runs on bare metal Built on 64-bit open source Xen technology Runs multiple virtual desktops simultaneously Completely secure isolation for each VM Hardware independent VMs Service VM Architecture for extensibility

37 Types of client hypervisor architectures Type 1 Hypervisor (XenClient) Type 2 Hypervisor (Traditional VMM) Corporate Image Type-2 Hypervisor Corporate Image Personal Image Type-1 Hypervisor Hardware Better Security and Isolation Bare Metal Performance Personal Image Hardware Less Isolation and Security Easier to Retrofit

38 Delivering Local VM Desktops with FlexCast Technology Deploy XenClient Backup Local Virtual Desktop Platform High performance bare-metal hypervisor Securely run multiple images Hardware independent Simplified OS management Secure Bidirectional Transport Deploy desktops from datacenter Only sends delta updates Secure single port communication Backup changes to datacenter Synchronizer for XenClient Single image management Flexible policy controls Disaster recovery to hosted virtual desktops XenClient with Citrix Receiver XenDesktop
