This week, HPE-SimpliVity announced the availability of a new hyper-converged appliance for Citrix workloads, as part of the Citrix Ready HCI Workspace Appliance Program.

Automation for HPE-SimpliVity and Citrix Cloud means our customers are not only able to take advantage of the many benefits of SimpliVity HCI, but are now able to deploy hybrid cloud Citrix Workspaces in less time and with less effort than ever before. This is possible because of the automation HPE added to their SimpliVity 380 platform, automation that for customers choosing to use Citrix Cloud to manage their Citrix Workspace environment as-a-service, simplifies the process of connecting to Citrix Cloud, establishes SimpliVity as a resource location for their apps and data, and deploys the Citrix Cloud connectors. All this happens with just a few clicks and does not require expert IT resources. Any IT generalist can do it. HPE SimpliVity Integration for Citrix Cloud solution supports both Hyper-V and vSphere hypervisors, giving customers more choices of the platform they wish to deploy their workspaces.

What makes this special for customers is that they can enjoy the benefits of cloud for their Citrix Workspaces — centralized management, subscription pricing and offloading routine management to Citrix (Evergreen, Citrix maintains, upgrades, patches and backs up the entire Citrix control plane) while also being able to keep their important apps and data on premises. For many, that balance of cloud and on premises helps meet regulatory and/or corporate governance and data sovereignty requirements. When you add HPE-SimpliVity’s simplified management and high performance capabilities including industry best server density and low cost-per-desktop, you get a hybrid cloud workspaces solution that makes no compromises. And speaking of no compromises, customers can rest assured that the solution is Citrix Ready-verified through the Citrix Ready HCI Workspace Appliance Program, meaning that it’s fully-supported by both Citrix and HPE.
