The only way to use Skype and VDI together—endorsed by and developed with Microsoft

Microsoft® Skype for Business is gaining widespread adoption as companies replace traditional PBX systems with the Microsoft unified communications platform. The shift to Skype for calls, messaging, online meetings and video can yield dramatic cost savings in both hardware and management. Running Skype as a virtualized app can take these benefits even further by allowing IT to use a single standardized version to support people on every platform in the organization. Virtualization also eliminates the security risks associated with logs and other files stored locally on users’ devices.

However, traditional virtualization delivery methods can significantly degrade performance for Skype, and a frustrating user experience can undermine adoption. IT needs a way to deliver Skype as a virtual app with performance at least as good as a traditional PBX. Together with Microsoft, Citrix has eliminated the performance problems typically associated with virtualized unified communications (UC) apps.
