Since its inception OneNet has maintained a close relationship with Citrix, who have long been known as a global leader in the delivery and management of hosted applications and desktops, as a key technology partner. OneNet and Citrix have continued to enhance this relationship over time by continually working together to identify relevant Citrix technologies which enhance OneNet’s value proposition of “delivering enterprise class computing one user at a time.” OneNet is excited to announce two new solutions which incorporate the very latest in application delivery technology to enable OneNet’s partners and clients to realise the benefits of what cloud computing promises.
OneNet’s latest Desktop as a Service solution is delive7red using Windows Server 2012 R2 and Citrix XenApp 7.6. The new platform takes advantage of the improved performance, security and stability enhancements available in both Windows Server 2012 R2 and XenApp 7.6 as well as addressing the ever-increasing user demands to be able to quickly and easily access their applications from a range of devices, wherever they are. According to Cliff Hedley, Citrix New Zealand Field Sales Manager, “OneNet’s early adoption of XenApp 7.6 puts them at the forefront of delivering robust, reliable and modern Desktop as a Service solutions allowing their customers the ability to focus on their business and the freedom to access their applications securely, from any device, at any time.”
In conjunction with XenApp 7.6 OneNet has deployed another exciting new Citrix technology to further enhance OneNet’s application and desktop delivery and availability capabilities. Citrix Netscalers, the worlds most advanced application delivery controllers have been deployed across OneNet’s three sites, Auckland, Hamilton and Christchurch. The appliances will provide OneNet the ability to better manage and accelerate application delivery across a wide range of devices and connections, improve security, increase resiliency through global load balancing and enhanced availability capabilities for clients who cannot tolerate downtime. “We’re excited to see OneNet continually evolve and expand their relationship with Citrix. With their recent investment in Citrix Netscaler technology they have taken the next step in the delivery of “enterprise class” solutions and services to their clients” noted Hedley.
