XenApp & XenDesktop Case Studies

Citrix Case Studies

XenApp & Desktop Case Study

International Law Firm

Customer requirement:

A replacement for their existing single-server Citrix XenDesktop solution that provides them with 24-7 availability for their globally based workforce.

Solution:

As the system was mission critical, FutureRange rearchitected the Citrix environment.

A multi-server XenDesktop/App solution was deployed, with redundancy at all key points of the environment to allow for both unexpected server failure and regular downtime for patching, application updates etc. without impacting user availability to the environment.

Outcome:

The customer was extremely happy with the results as it not only resolved several performance and resource issues they had previously but also gave them a reliable platform to expand their operations in different time zones.
