AllOverviewFitting Delivery of Desktop Apps to the Cloud On-demand application delivery from the cloud not only addresses the shortcomings of traditional techniques and tools, but also accounts for a wide range of other important enterprise objectives as well. Enabled by Citrix® XenApp, this ideal combination of capabilities is based on managing applications in the datacenter and delivering them as an on-demand service to users anywhere using virtually any device including PCs, Macs, Linux, thin clients and smartphones. Stated another way, the keys to this approach are: Completely centralized management, maintenance, and control of applications Application delivery, which refers to the ability to offer both online and offline application access through a combination of application hosting and application streaming, and The on-demand nature of the service, which ensures end-users get immediate access to applications when and where they need them. The net result is that the cost of application management is reduced by up to 50%, dramatically improved business agility, and significantly strengthened application and data security – all while providing users with a better-than-installed experience. Uni Systems On-demand applications from the cloud transform application management from a liability into a strategic asset. The combination of application virtualization, session virtualization, and a robust, centrally controlled delivery infrastructure helps achieve the right balance. Bridging the gap between business and user needs, the solution provides: the most cost-effective way to manage and deliver applications to users; the strongest protection for sensitive data, proprietary information, and intellectual property the greatest degree of user and device flexibility while still retaining control the best user experience and performance on any network, and, the highest levels of reliability and application availability. FeaturesEnd-user self-service via Uni Systems Cloud Control panel Customer’s Self Administration: Through the use of Uni Systems Control Panel, Customer administrators can themselves perform most of the user administration required for their own organization. Managing user accounts, provisioning services or managing their organization’s own services (e.g. Hosted Exchange contacts or distribution lists) is performed through the easy to use web interface. Allows customers to import users in bulk through an Excel file Administration of Users Create as many administrator users as necessary. Control service specific administrative permissions. Configure email alerts for expiring passwords or unused accounts. User’s Self Administration: Administration functionality is available to all user accounts provisioned in the system. Changing a password or downloading a configuration file for Microsoft Outlook can be achieved by logging in to Uni Systems Control Panel system Change Password feature. Users can typically: Change their existing password Unlock user accounts and reset passwords for other users (full and partial administrators) View configuration information screens or download required setup files Provide customized content to users based on the services they are subscribed to View any reports published to the user Users obtain simple access to applications and define their own experience while IT ultimately remains in control. Device independent delivery: Any cloud-based application delivery solution must provide comprehensive support for an increasingly mobile workforce, as well as provide the broad platform support required by the consumerization of IT. These include Windows, Mac, Linux, and Unix devices, along with legacy DOS PCs, the latest NetBooks & tablets and any of thousands of thin-clients and smart terminals available on the market today. Even users on iPhone, iPod Touch, iPads, Windows Mobile, Android devices need access to Windows and UNIX applications. Application virtualization: Improves the manageability and compatibility of applications by isolating them from the underlying operating system through virtual redirection. With application virtualization, applications are not installed in the traditional sense. Instead, they are packaged in a way that provides each application with its own isolated runtime environment where it will operate using its own virtualized (i.e., copied) instance of necessary system services, settings and data and with all requests to the underlying operating system proxied. When a user requests an application, the corresponding package is then streamed – that is, sent over the network in a way that it allows it to run even as the sending process is in progress – to the user’s endpoint. Added benefits of this approach are that it provides access to applications when users are offline and enables organizations to more fully leverage end-point computing power. Uni Systems on-demand apps service, is powered with the defacto standard in application virtualization - Citrix. Session virtualization Session virtualization is a second delivery method that includes a number of attractive characteristics. With session virtualization, applications are either: Installed or streamed to centralized Windows Servers running Remote Desktop Services – a configuration referred to as server-hosted applications, or Implemented within a virtual machine that is then run on a centralized blade PC, dedicated PC, or as part of a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) implementation – a configuration referred to as VM-hosted applications. The primary distinction from application virtualization is that in this case the applications are hosted and run in a centralized location, as opposed to on endpoint devices. Users remotely access them via a client-side software agent or ordinary web browser and interact by exchanging mouse, keyboard, and screen updates over the network. This way, performance is enhanced, particularly for “chatty” client-server applications and, most importantly, sensitive applications and data never leave the datacenter. Uni Systems on-demand apps service, is using citrix XenApp solution to provide session virtualization. PricingUni|Apps is offered per user and its pricing comes on a monthly base.
