Maintaining a high level of application and desktop availability is critical for the successful operation of many enterprises today. Although application and desktop virtualization are powerful technologies for achieving efficiency and availability, they present multiple implementation, management, and usability challenges.
Many organizations embracing Citrix XenApp and Citrix XenDesktop as the foundation for a virtualization strategy have discovered that the right Application Delivery Controller(ADC) can enable them to reap the full benefits of these deployments, while overcoming challenges related to availability, security, and performance. This white paper explores the issues related to failover response, remote access management and performance. It looks at how F5 ADC technology can help XenApp and XenDesktop deployments by intelligently directing traffic, improving application availability, increasing performance, and delivering the most flexible security of any ADC on the market.
F5's solution consolidates network components into a single device and then readily scales to meet the changing demands of business-critical applications and Web services. F5 ADCs deliver faster applications, secure and reliable access management, a higher quality experience for users, and a more efficient IT department that can be more responsive to business needs.
