Recently, Citrix launched Citrix Workspace Cloud, the fastest and easiest way for IT to enable business productivity with secure apps, data, device management and more. This groundbreaking new platform reinforces the core Citrix leadership in delivering an unsurpassed experience, maintaining and supporting security, while providing unmatched flexibility.

For Citrix, flexibility includes empowering our channel partners and customers to choose the IT infrastructure that works best for them. This contrasts with other vendors who package infrastructure choice as anything that runs on their software stack, whether in their restrictive hyper-converged infrastructure or their cloud.

Citrix has extended the Citrix Ready program to the Citrix Workspace Cloud Applications and Desktops Service to ensure those infrastructure choices deliver the integration and performance our customers need.

The folks at Nutanix share our vision for Citrix Ready verification with Citrix Workspace Cloud, stepping forward to become our first Citrix Ready partner verified for Citrix Workspace Cloud. With Nutanix, we are providing additional Citrix Ready verified infrastructure options for deploying virtual apps and desktop services through Citrix Workspace Cloud.

We have many joint customers already that are using XenApp and XenDesktop with Nutanix hyper-converged infrastructure. Citrix Ready for Workspace Cloud extends that capability to enable customers to use the management service in Workspace Cloud to design, deploy and manage apps and desktops that are running in their datacenters on Nutanix. This will help accelerate customer time to value, and drive even greater efficiencies and success with app and desktop delivery projects.

This commitment also illustrates the power of our strategic vision, particularly when we collaborate with innovative teams like the engineers at Nutanix. And we are just beginning to tap the potential of this relationship. For more information on the Citrix Ready verification that Nutanix has earned, take a look here!
