Citrix® and Google Cloud Simplify Shift to Flexible Work
New Citrix DaaS solutions available on Google Cloud Marketplace deliver cost and time-savings in making transition from procurement to deployment
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – May 4, 2022 – Last year, Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTXS) and Google Cloud announced their commitment to helping customers accelerate and embrace hybrid work models through Desktop as a Service (DaaS) solutions. And they’re delivering on it. The companies today announced that two new Citrix DaaS solutions are available for purchase in the Google Cloud Marketplace, making it easier than ever for organizations with Citrix VDI solutions to transition to Citrix DaaS on Google Cloud.
And the timing couldn’t be better.
“Organizations are rapidly moving to adopt hybrid work, and IT needs a way to get there that’s efficient, cost-effective, secure, and flexible,” said Carisa Stringer, Vice President of Product Marketing, Citrix.
Google Cloud Marketplace makes it easy for companies to quickly purchase and deploy market-leading digital workspace solutions designed to enable secure remote work, including Citrix DaaS solutions purpose-built for Google Cloud:
Citrix DaaS spend purchased through Google Cloud Marketplace counts towards a customer’s Google Cloud commitment and is included in their Google Cloud invoice, simplifying the transaction to just one bill.
Citrix Systems Integrator and Google Cloud partner Wipro is looking forward to using the solutions to help advance the future of work.
“Wipro is very excited and keen to position the DaaS solution from Citrix and Google Cloud by deploying a true hybrid cloud solution for hybrid work”, said Seshu Venkata, General Manager and Global Head of Wipro VirtuaDesk, Cloud and Infrastructures services.
In addition to these new offerings and simplified transaction process, Citrix and Google Cloud are continuing to develop tools and resources to make it easier than ever for customers to transition from on-premises VDI deployments to DaaS with Google Cloud, including:
“Transitioning to the cloud is a top priority for IT, and it takes a lot of careful planning and considerations,” Stringer said. “Together with Google, we are committed to providing solutions and resources that simplify and speed the process and deliver results.”
