Today, VCE announced a new VDI integration service for Citrix that accelerates mobile workspace deployments by combining app and desktop delivery from Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop with the power of NetScaler SDX.

With this announcement, VCE and Citrix are drawing upon our industry leadership and strong partnership to offer our mutual customers a simple rapid path to app and virtual desktop delivery via private or hybrid cloud, with users enjoying the freedom to work from anywhere.

Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop enables our customers to choose the right delivery model for the right user at the right time, which provides flexibility while reducing costs and extending the benefits of desktop and app delivery to their workforce.

In addition, VCE and Citrix have partnered to bring NetScaler with Citrix TriScale technology – the leading application delivery controller – to VCE system customers. Using NetScaler, our customers can maximize the performance and availability of applications and data in their cloud environments.

As the leading innovator of application delivery software, Citrix is a close partner with VCE as Citrix recently attained Platinum level status as a Technology Alliance Partner of VCE, demonstrating our mutual commitment to joint solutions and innovation.

VCE offers a deep, growing portfolio of End-User Computing Services to help ensure successful deployment of VCE/Citrix solutions. The services draw on VCE’s CI transformation leadership—helping thousands of customers worldwide successfully implement, maintain, upgrade, and expand their converged infrastructure presence to meet changing business goals.

As the VCE VDI integration services for Citrix become available in early May, enterprises and service providers will be able to provide highly in-demand services while benefiting from easier administration, faster deployments, flexible desktop and application scenarios, reduced risk, and lower cost for high performance.
