As technologies evolve, more and more actual becomes the ability for businesses and organizations to be mobile. Increasingly, needs arises to access the work environment from different locations and different devices (laptops, tablets, mobile phones). To make this process as safe as possible, one of the solutions being offered is application and desktop virtualization, which means that the data is not stored on the physical device, but in the virtual environment, which can be accessed only by the individual user and the company’s IT administrator.
Application and desktop virtualization allows you to reduce costs on purchasing new equipment, because applications, that you use, are not being installed on devices itself, thereby they will work as fast as servers will let them to work. And that will increase the sustainability of our environment and eco-system.

Local virtual machine – virtual machine is stored and processed on the user device using Citrix XenClient that allows to access desktop by request;
Individual applications – applications that are stored on the server and access is provided by logging on from user device.
