Many organizations are adopting a cloud strategy to increase business agility and simplify operations. But cloud migration isn't without challenges. Creating your ideal IT infrastructure takes time and requires careful planning to ensure you’re making the most of cloud environment investments. That’s why Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service lets you move to the cloud at the pace that’s right for your business. With a wide range of choices to meet your company’s specific goals, you’ll have everything you need to deliver secure apps and desktops on any device, over any network. No matter where you are in your digital transformation journey.
Each business has its own reasons for moving to the cloud. Some companies are ready to fully embrace cloud technology, while others need to maximize on-premises investments with a hybrid-cloud approach. With Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service, you decide what works best. Whether you need to keep business-critical apps in the datacenter or gradually move to multiple clouds, the choice is yours. Easily leverage a range of cloud providers, including Microsoft Azure with Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD), Amazon (AWS) or Google Cloud, and have IT manage them alongside on-premises Citrix resources. Or, if a hands-off solution more closely matches your needs, Citrix even offers turnkey Desktops-as-a-Service (DaaS), allowing IT to spin up new capacity in an instant. Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service grows with you, enabling IT flexibility as your business needs evolve.
Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service gives you peace of mind that users will be working in a virtualized environment where innovation and creativity can thrive—and not just because they’re benefiting from powerful HDX technology. Continuous updates ensure employees have the most recent features, functionalities, and enhancements at all times. And because IT has a streamlined console to simplify management, admins can spend less time watching server stats and rolling out patches—and more time focusing on delivering the best end-user experience possible.
When power outages, pandemics and other unanticipated disruptions occur, you need to make sure employees are empowered to continue business as usual. With Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service, there’s no need to wait until an admin can get to physical servers. Remote users will have access to all the tools they need to remain productive, while IT manages everything from a single cloud console. That means deployment can be completed in hours, not weeks, so employees can access their apps and desktops from day one. Add in Citrix Analytics for Security and Citrix Analytics for Performance, and you can easily stay ahead of potential external threats and performance issues, too.
When capacity needs change due to big shifts—such as mergers and acquisitions, seasonal hires or increases in remote work—fast time-to-value is key. Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service provides the flexibility you need to support these and other scenarios, while reducing capital expenses. You can use autoscale to ramp workloads up and down as your capacity needs change, workspace environment management (WEM) to increase user density and performance, and DaaS to deploy desktops on demand and scale down when the need is gone. All of this is in addition to the benefits of offloading your Citrix infrastructure management, decreasing datacenter costs and positioning IT for future success.
