With Citrix Synergy 2019 here, I’m excited to share a new, turnkey way of delivering Citrix Workspace resources to your user community. Citrix, in partnership with HPE, is showcasing a new hybrid-cloud consumption-based IaaS solution with the HPE Greenlake VDI lighthouse built with Citrix Cloud.

Citrix and HPE Pointnext are partnering to provide this new turnkey, all-in-one solution that keeps your digital workspace resources on-premises while still giving you the benefits of cloud-like economics. It’s an innovative as-a-service approach that lets your virtual app and desktop workloads stay in your data center, eliminates the upfront expense of implementation and refresh cycles, scales with ease, and allows you to only pay for what you use on a per-user, per-month basis.

This is all about giving customers choiceexperience, and security for a Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktop solution with a scale-as-you-grow solution that meets your hybrid-cloud business needs.

  • Choice: It does not matter where you are in your cloud journey with this offer, you get the ability to deliver public cloud economics on-premises. So now, you can pay only for what you use — per user per month — and burst capacity up and down, all from the comfort of your on-premises data center.
  • Experience: HPE Pointnext can manage the entire stack of hardware, software, and services so that you are free from the mundane tasks of deployment, capacity planning, and patch updates to focus on user experience and innovation for your enterprise.
  • Security: You can keep those applications requiring the greatest compliance and control on-premises but still get the benefit of paying for only what you use.

And we’re working together to expand this solution even further to include new Citrix Workspace intelligence technology to optimize the future of work.

It’s really simple. You choose from a range of fixed performance tiers and then HPE does the design, procurement, installation, integration, etc., to deploy all of the necessary hardware and software in your data center. Citrix and HPE Pointnext are making it easier for organizations to minimize the complexity of day-to-day management so you can work on projects that improve and enhance your value chain, while providing an on-demand, per-user, per-month consumption model.

“Companies are looking to boost their workforce’s productivity by providing secure access to high performing desktops and applications from anywhere, at any time, and from any device. Our customers need to achieve this without facing the large upfront capital cost, lengthy procurement and implementation times, rigid capacity, and labor intensive ongoing operations which traditional solutions suffer from. The HPE GreenLake VDI offering with our strategic partner Citrix removes the challenges of deploying traditional VDI environments by providing a unique way to consume a secure workspace environment as a service. And this solution is complemented by a breadth of capabilities delivered by HPE Pointnext which includes network communications, security, hybrid and public cloud, and management of change. “

The scale-as-you-grow solution provides the ability and flexibility to scale up and down to support your workforce. Whether you’re increasing or decreasing the workforce, making seasonal adjustments, or adding contractors, with Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops you can provision or decommission virtual desktops with just a few clicks and pay per user, per month. You retain full control of the crucial desktop and application environment, while HPE ensures that the platform is available, performant, and secure in your data center. Citrix delivers the VDI software from Citrix Cloud and HPE Pointnext owns and operates the on-premise server, storage, and networking infrastructure. This vastly reduces the risk, cost, and complexity of deploying and managing virtualized desktop environments.
