What have our early customers and partners been saying about Citrix Workspace Cloud? Plenty!

One of my favorite moments of being part of the launch of Citrix Workspace Cloud was the being able to sit off-camera, as we captured Citrix tech preview customer and partner reactions to this new platform. When they walked into the room, their excitement to talk about Workspace Cloud was evident, and I was impressed with the care they took in their words to describe their experiences.

I encourage you to watch each of the videos to hear thoughts–transparent and unfettered–on Workspace Cloud from real Citrix tech preview users. You’ll be glad you did. Citrix Customer Insight: Workspace Cloud – a common, robust experience for end users

Managing assets in multiple enterprise data centers and cloud asset data centers – across complex environments and worldwide locations – is difficult. Workspace Cloud not only gives Fred Devoir, Senior Architect and Manager – IT Infrastructure, Textron, a common management platform across disparate and discrete asset locations, but also a common user experience that is simple and easy for end users to use. Textron and its end users could benefit from Workspace Cloud as a single point of access to apps and desktops in a rich, robust IT administration environment.

My favorite quote:What Citrix Workspace Cloud is giving me is not only a common management platform, common management plane for these disparate and discrete assets, but also a common user experience across all of the different applications and desktops that I’m delivering to my end users.” – Fred Devoir, Senior Architect and Manager – IT Infrastructure, Textron

Workspace Cloud – simple, scalable and reliable

Administering customers’ multiple data centers can be painful. Dane Young, Virtualization Practice Manager, Entisys Solutions explains that Workspace Cloud provides a high-level, broadstroke approach to multiple data centers – one portal, one interface to administer.
