How to Overcome 3 Citrix VDI Performance Challenges with Azure
In traditional on-premises Citrix deployments, poor performance can wreck your end-user experience.
RedPixie leads the way in application architecture
Modern applications make the most of everything the cloud has to offer. They provide the drive for stateless components, where business logic and data are housed in appropriate locations and application services are scaled at will.
We work with you to realise the benefits of modern cloud application architectures. Our services include:
Our cloud application team works with you to design and build cloud native application architectures. Our goal is to use cloud PaaS capabilities wherever possible to simplify and standardise application architecture design.
After successfully modernising and building cloud application stacks, we document any necessary support needs and processes for these applications and provide around the clock support through our managed service team.
We've helped a leading investment company deliver a cloud-based portal to improve access to portfolio valuation documents.
In our engagement, we’ve considered both technical and business aspects including:
When we began work with this customer, they were operating a bespoke grid platform for modelling catastrophe scenarios. The grid ran CatMan scenarios sequentially in batch at low speeds, meaning high priority CatMan jobs were queued behind low priority jobs.
We reverse engineered the application stack, decoupling it and transitioning the platform into the Azure cloud. The new system delivers effective parallel processing and scaling, as well as pushing jobs to different process queues based on business priority.
We were set the goal of transitioning a complex modelling application from grid computing to a PaaS platform in the Azure cloud. To achieve this, we designed a modern cloud application architecture featuring stateless, resilient and highly-available application tiers.
We remediated several aspects of the application to eradicate legacy .NET run times and to remove VBA from Excel models. A combination of Azure web jobs, message queue infrastructure, and service fabric cluster components has delivered a cost efficient, stable platform that is easily scaled and carries very little management overhead.
