As a leader in virtualization and remote access, Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service can help you do just that. With flexible options to match your business goals, it’s easy to create the hybrid-cloud environment you need for success—without the extra complexity you may expect from a cloud migration.
With teams becoming increasingly distributed, you need to deliver a secure remote access solution to a wide audience. Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service allows you to offload server maintenance and monitoring so you can simplify management and streamline day-to-day activities for administrators. With a control pane that’s always patched and up-to-date, there’s no need to plan cumbersome upgrades, perform bulky updates or invest in intensive IT training.

Whether you need to keep critical business apps on-premises or want to leverage multiple cloud platforms, Citrix is here for you. A variety of deployment options allows you to adapt Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service to match your current needs—instead of the other way around. Scale your environment based on seasonal changes, burst to cloud for capacity or enable unexpected business needs beyond the boundaries of your datacenters. It’s all aggregated into a single console where you can manage a hybrid of on-premises resources side-by-side with public clouds. And for the ultimate in hands-off IT rollouts, new Citrix desktops-as-a-service (DaaS) options can be used to deliver virtual apps and desktops on demand.
No matter where things stand at your organization today, Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service will evolve with you based on the specific needs of your business and industry. Existing on-premises customers can enjoy the benefits of hybrid-rights licensing to support new workloads and move into the cloud as needed.

While there’s no way to know when the next power outage or natural disaster will occur, it is possible to be prepared. By using Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service to manage multiple resource locations across datacenters or cloud infrastructures, you can eliminate the risk of a single point of failure. Built-in failover capabilities let you bring up a disaster recovery site for secure access when the unexpected happens, without having to go into a physical datacenter. And if a sudden or unplanned office closure increases the need for extra capacity, DaaS options can be leveraged to get remote employees up and running within hours—while allowing you to maintain full control over applications, policies and users.
