Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops Service—Simplify deploying Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops

App and desktop delivery across the hybrid cloud

The Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops Service on Citrix Cloud delivers secure, virtual applications and desktops from on-premises resources or from major public cloud providers such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Google Cloud Platform, giving you the ability to adopt a cloud-first architecture while maintaining complete control over your application and desktop resources.

Why choose Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops Service?


Choose the cloud provider that best meets your workload deployment needs.

Citrix provides IT with complete choice of where apps, desktops and data workloads reside, either the datacenter or public cloud or both; other vendors require that you locate in their cloud or in specific regions.


Manage apps and desktops centrally across multiple geographies and resource locations.

Overcome capital constraints with centralized service and deployment, reducing required infrastructure. Centralized image management and app layering technologies mean you only need to manage a single app image across both on-premises and cloud-based deployments, simplifying the transition to the cloud. A cloud-based architecture also enables you to host resources near the users, further improving their experience.


Reduce costs with infrastructure managed and monitored by Citrix.

The intuitive and integrated management that Citrix provides centralizes service and deployment, reducing expertise and infrastructure required. Compared to traditional software models, Citrix Cloud services are the simplest method to create and manage virtual workspaces, and cloud deployment options reduce or eliminate need for capital infrastructure.


Speed app and desktop deployment and time-to-production value.

Citrix Cloud services are the fastest way to create, deploy and manage Citrix technologies. Services can be rapidly activated and/or deployed in hours. The result is faster time-to-value to meet the immediate demands of users and of the business.


Easily integrate with other Citrix Cloud services to provide complete secure digital workspaces.

Citrix provides a common platform to manage Citrix Cloud services, including Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, mobile apps and devices, data and IT automation services; other vendors offer a subset of services. Management services span multiple infrastructures, clouds, locations and geographies; other vendors force customers to use diverse piece-parts and tools.
