Citrix VD Use Case

Success Story

Swiss IT Security AG rejuvenates Woodpecker Holding AG’s complete IT

Smoothed and polished

Leading specialist for wood-based materials and construction, Woodpecker Holding AG, transformed its IT in one fell swoop: Consolidation and setting up a new network across sites as well as setting up Citrix solutions for 180 seats. Check out our all-new use case to learn how this mammoth project was executed.


Key Milestones included:

  • Setting up a centralized data center: Connecting all six sites to our Swiss IT Security Cloud via MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching). The Lucerne-based data center is hosting all of Woodpecker Holding AG’s line-of-business apps, including Comarch ERP, Sage and Microsoft Active Directory.
  • Installation of a virtual server infrastructure (Keynet Cloud): At the core of the new IT system now lies a new virtual server infrastructure, which powers security, hybrid exchange, and backup solutions as well as a complete Citrix VD environment for all clients (more on that below).
  • Securely connecting to Microsoft 365: Existing Microsoft 365 apps and services are now accessed by all clients through our secure data center.
  • Connecting thin clients to our data center: Central management of all thin clients via Keynet Cloud reduced local administration efforts dramatically.

Setting up and connecting new hardware: The new infrastructure demanded a new internet connection, as well as Cisco switches and Firewall clusters. At the heart of the new data center lies a high-performance Cisco UCS Blade server connected to a full flash array from Pure Storage.
