Alpika Service is a Russian ski resort opened in 1993. The resort is located on the picturesque slopes of the Aibga Ridge. Alpika Service needed to create a modern IT-infrastructure, capable of solving any business problem. To do this, the company needed a technology system that would have centralized management, secure communications and data transfer, as well as secure access to the information system. They chose Citrix XenDesktop and Citrix XenServer. These technologies met all of their requirements, and provide reliable control of IT-infrastructure.
Alpika Service chose XenDesktop because it allows them to deliver virtual desktops to users with support for HDX. XenDesktop allows users' to access virtual desktops on servers in the data center. The user workspace is equipped with a specially configured computer or thin client remotely which allows them to connect to their virtual desktop. They chose XenDesktop because it provides FlexCast technology, which allows Alpika Service to provide the appropriate type of virtual desktop for each user, depending on the specifics of the work and the requirements of software and hardware. This approach reduces total cost of ownership.
They liked that the XenDesktop solution allows them to configure and distribute applications and desktops centrally, thereby providing a single infrastructure for the administrator to provide Alpika Service employees with the necessary resources to do their work.
The XenServer virtualization platform helps Alpika Service manage their cloud, desktop and virtual infrastructures. It enables IT organizations to significantly reduce the number of servers in the data center and more efficient use of existing hardware resources. XenServer delivers best-in-class performance for desktop virtualization by integrating virtualization platform from XenDesktop. It also provides the highest density of virtual machines and optimizes storage operations and protects the network of virtual machines for a comfortable end-user experience, while providing control by the IT department.
Alpika Service worked with experts at COMPLETE, "gold" partner of Citrix. They provided the design of the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure and completed the deployment of the solution, including the installation and configuration of the necessary equipment and software. Through the introduction of virtualization solutions for desktops, operating systems, transfer of employees to a virtual environment Alpika Service has received:
The implemented solution allows the IT infrastructure of Alpika Service to be more flexible, scalable, conveniently administered, safe and fault-tolerant. The company managed to create a modern IT-infrastructure, capable of solving any tasks in the field of IT.
The successful deployment of XenDesktop and XenServer has allowed Alpika Service to start planning for the further implementation of Citrix products. In the future, their expansion of services will be supported by the virtual infrastructure of the Citrix products, as well as the use of virtualization, not only to support user services, but also for system automation. Furthermore, the scalability of XenDesktop and XenServer will allow Alpika Service to extend it to a larger number of jobs.
