Earlier this year, I wrote a blog post about some exciting new XenMobile Service offerings that were coming in 2017.
Today, I’m back to tell you that the new offerings are now available — and they’re available with some pretty spectacular pricing. If you’re an existing XenMobile on-prem customer, now is a great time to transition your EMM infrastructure to the cloud.
There are two new primary paths that will get you to the cloud:
- New! Citrix Workspace Suite (Hybrid) is our new workspace offering for customers who want to keep their XenApp/XenDesktop infrastructure on-prem, but want their Enterprise Mobility Management delivered from the cloud. Software maintenance for all components is included with the price of the subscription.
- New! XenMobile on-prem to cloud transition offers. For a limited time, existing XenMobile on-prem customers can transition to the XenMobile Service from Citrix Cloud for a fraction of the cost.
Here’s a quick example. A XenMobile Premium Service subscription has a suggested retail price of $133/user/year. With the new transition offer, you can sign up for a 3-year subscription for the same XenMobile Premium Service — for only $60/user/year!
CHA-CHING! Sounds pretty good, right?
But wait! There’s more!
It gets even better. With all XenMobile Service offerings, software maintenance is included. Remember the $41/year you were paying for XenMobile Enterprise Edition on-prem software maintenance every year? You no longer have to pay that.
Subtracting the $41 leaves us with $19/user/year, which is less than $1.50/user/month.
Hopefully I don’t sound like an infomercial… but I’m not done yet!
We haven’t yet factored in the cost savings you’ll realize when outsourcing your XenMobile infrastructure.
A conservative estimate indicates that hosting the XenMobile infrastructure yourself will cost about $10/user/year. On top of that, you’d still have to pay an IT staff to troubleshoot and support the infrastructure.
Now we’re down to $9/user/year or about $.75/user/month.
All of these new transition offers also include Hybrid Rights. This means that we’re going to entitle you to both on-prem and cloud licensing for 24 months. This will give you plenty of time to transition to the cloud at your own pace.
Need some help? The Citrix service organization has ramped up to support customer transition initiatives. For more information, please contact your local Citrix representative.
There’s never been a better time to consume XenMobile from the cloud. Take advantage of this great transition pricing today, lock in the low pricing for 3 years (billed annually) and relax with 24 months of hybrid rights.
If you’re planning to attend Citrix Synergy in Orlando, Florida this May, we’ve got a break-out session designed specifically for customers looking to take their XenMobile deployment to the cloud. For more information, click HERE.
