Partners, did you know Citrix offers no-charge licenses to Microsoft Windows deployment partners that are working on XP migration pilots and proof of concept projects? The Citrix offer for the Microsoft Jumpstart program, focused on speeding XP deployments, includes no-charge access to Citrix AppDNA for application migration, Citrix XenDesktop for virtualization and Project Accelerator for application discovery, plus sizing and scoping of affiliated virtualization projects.

Microsoft partners and Microsoft Consulting Services (MCS) can access the licenses through a new Citrix web page. Enterprises need to migrate to Windows 7 or Windows 8 by April 8, 2014 or face expensive extended support fees.

Automating application compatibility testing and remediation with AppDNA saves months in the preparation process. Customers that have trouble with specific applications may choose to deploy virtual desktops and apps via XenDesktop. They can use Project Accelerator for broad application discovery, guided best practices for virtualization success plus accurate virtualization project sizing of hardware and storage.
