Why Choose to Partner with Citrix?

A Different Kind of Service Provider: Validations

Service Provider Program validation is a detailed review of the technical infrastructure and business approach of a Citrix Service Provider. Earning the Service Provider Program Standard Validation helps end-user customers recognize and select a trusted hosted service provider and provides reassurance to resellers that the provider’s technical and business approaches have been reviewed by experts.

With a Diamond Validation, you can add white label hosting services for resellers to your business offerings.

How to Achieve Service Provider Standard Validation

To achieve Service Provider Partner Program Validation, service providers must:

  • Use the latest Citrix technology releases
  • Implement in alignment with the Citrix Service Provider Reference architecture
  • Have at least two Citrix Certified Administrators
  • Outline their business structure, including marketing and sales plans, reseller training content, technical support processes and back office operations
  • Complete a live audit of their business with Citrix business and technology professionals

How to Achieve Service Provider Diamond Validation

To achieve Citrix Service Provider Diamond validation, service providers must have completed the Standard validation, plus:

  • Have at least one Citrix certified architect on staff
  • Use Citrix Premium offering for an optimal hosted desktop and hosted application experience
  • Streamline self-service provisioning with Citrix CloudPortal Services Manager – simplifying the provisioning of Citrix products, as well as other business applications like Microsoft Exchange, Office, SharePoint, Lync and web hosting
  • Employ Citrix NetScaler for maximizing application delivery networking

Get Started Faster With A White Label Hosting Partner

As a simpler and lower investment alternative to building a DaaS infrastructure, reselling services from a Citrix Service Provider White Label Hosting Partner can accelerate time-to-market as well as provide SLA and support guarantees that would challenge smaller firms to provide. New entrants to the growing market for cloud-hosted desktops can find a faster route to revenue when partnering with an established white label hosting partner.

Ideal customers of white label partners include hosted service resellers looking to increase customer relationship value, service providers aiming to increase average revenue per user (ARPU), and managed services providers wishing to exit support for infrastructure burden.
