Citrix and VMware Managed & Co-Managed Services

Solving Every Day Citrix and VMware Issues

 
We encounter a wide variety of issues when solving our clients’ security headaches. However, across all industries and company sizes a few stand out as repeat offenders. Do these ring a bell?
citrix infrastructure upgrade

Infrastructure Upgrade

Clients who need to upgrade their infrastructure will often face complex challenges getting Citrix or VMware running as intended. The application must be supported by an extremely stable backend in order to work.
   
poor citrix end user experience

Poor End User Experience

An unsatisfying Citrix or VMware experience can stem from many factors external to the apps themselves. Issues with VDI can often be traced to SQL, mass storage, Active Directory, and more.
   
lack of manpower

Lack of Manpower

IT departments are often stretched thin. Our clients often find themselves without a team large enough to support a Citrix or VMware deployment, or with a team that has no native VDI experience.
   
incomplete citrix features

Incomplete Features

Commensurate with a lack of manpower, both large and small companies have difficulties realizing the full Citrix or VMware feature-set. Small companies can’t afford to train their staff on every feature, whereas large companies may simply overlook the issue.
   
complex citrix incident resolution

Complex Incident Resolution

Teams often face technical challenges with Citrix or VMware due to infrastructure issues, or personnel challenges due to siloed IT departments. No matter the reason, it can be frustrating to find the source of problems amidst a thicket of potential causes.
   
citrix overload

VDI Overload

Companies running multiple VDI servers or many VDI images will often have implementations that are slow or buggy. This stems from configuration differences between servers, or simply from having an unmanageable number of VMs.
   
 

A Look At Our Process

 
By assuming responsibility for both support and delivery, our Citrix or VMware managed services remediates client issues, no matter the source.

VDI Assessment

 
  • After a detailed assessment, Whitehat may determine that a remediation approach, using a Deskbloxx appliance to bypass infrastructure, may be warranted. Alternatively, a Citrix or VMware managed services approach can make up a skills gap on the client side
 
program management

Remediation

 
    • Deskbloxx is a self-contained appliance that contains the components required for VDI to run well. It doesn’t rely on client infrastructure, meaning that the client can stave off costly upgrades while still enjoying the full suite of Citrix or VMware applications.

This approach helps overcome any potential downsides from a smaller or more siloed IT organization. Instead, our team delivers the Citrix or VMware implementation and also provides on going control and monitoring.

“They got Horizon right, but Horizon with vGPU surpassed my expectations. No issues, its been a great experience.” – CIO
