Next Step to a Unified Workspace with Cisco Virtualization Experience Infrastructure (VXI)
Two years ago, we, along with our partners, launched the Cisco Virtualization Experience Infrastructure (VXI) Smart Solution, with the vision of delivering a virtual desktop platform that enables our customers to achieve faster ROI, better user experience and greater control. Since then, we’ve seen a major shift in the market. People are using a multitude of devices while businesses are now accepting and supporting BYOD initiatives, fueling the growth of new workspace models. Cisco has responded by rolling out the Cisco Unified Workspace, strategy, and the Cisco VXI Smart Solution is a key component.
Today, we introduced a new release of the Cisco VXI Smart Solution.
Cisco VXI has always been a solution that spans the Cisco architectures of Data Center, Borderless Networks and Collaboration. With this new release, we are continuing innovations across all three including:
New to Data Center is the support for our newest Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) servers, providing IT with massive desktop density, greatly increased performance, and a dramatically simplified operations model. We’re also delivering new capabilities that significantly reduce costs and TCO. Read more in today’s Cisco Data Center blog.
On the Collaboration front, we now offer Cisco Jabber for Windows on HVD which delivers rich collaboration experience across locations and devices without compromising security or performance. In addition, we now support Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise, enabling IT to deploy agent desktops in a virtualized environment. Learn more by reading the Cisco Collaboration blog.
Our Borderless Network will support optimization for Citrix ICA and multi-stream ICA so customers can apply QoS to ICA (or HDX) with up to 5 levels of priority. We have also improved experience for remote users by integrating a single sign-on to Citrix virtual desktops, providing the same interface for both corporate and personal devices. Find out more in the Cisco Borderless Network blog.
As part of the VXI Smart Solution we introduced optimization that significantly reduces storage costs. And, your solution can be implemented with confidence by downloading our new Cisco Validated Designs (CVD) for Citrix and VMware. Read the VMware blog and the Citrix blog to learn more.
The new release of the Cisco VXI Smart Solution lets people work their way without compromise while enabling businesses to deploy a secure and efficient workspace.
