There are some things that aren’t fit to print.

Printing in the enterprise has gotten somewhat of a bad rap in recent years, with a growing move towards the so-called paperless office. Printing is seen as wasteful, even dangerous. But as some have pointed out recently, paper will be around for quite a while yet.

UniPrint Infinity, a printer virtualization product that sits between the client and the Citrix server, provided the solution. Print jobs are held in a central location and held until they are released, with no need to install drivers.

An all-HP shop, Sunrise opted for virtualization over a basic security regime with a user-entered PIN because that would mean all the printers would need displays, Jayasinghe adds. With virtualization, he says, “the authentication part is independent of the printer.”
