Cloud provisioning for
enterprise applications  

Run complex enterprise application workloads with best-in-class virtualization and networking. CloudPlatform delivers true private cloud isolation, ensures SLA levels and meters usage and availability for running mission critical workloads in the cloud. For faster, more agile management and operations of XenDesktop and XenApp environments, enterprises deploying CloudPlatform can leverage its cloud-based workload provisioning, or stage development, testing and production in a consistent way. This eases the application development and publishing processes.

Enabling traditional enterprise application workloads with CloudPlatform (2:34)

Learn why Citrix CloudPlatform is the best enterprise cloud foundation for leveraging existing investments and meeting enterprise isolation, virtualization and SLAs requirements for running mission critical application workloads.

Cloud provisioning for enterprise applications

Integrated desktop cloud provisioning for XenDesktop or XenApp environments

XenDesktop and XenApp customers gain enhanced manageability, predictability and flexibility through a common management framework that simplifies and automates the provisioning and management of large-scale XenDesktop and XenApp environments, including multi-tenant, multi-site, and hybrid-cloud implementations.

Scale up, out and in automatically with cross-workload AutoScale

Citrix NetScaler combined with Citrix CloudPlatform enables automatic and dynamic load balancing and scaling of your infrastructure. No manual intervention is needed for real-time workload balancing, and additional infrastructure resources are provisioned as needed.

Learn more in the AutoScaling Master Class (1:04:28)

Join our presenters Marc Trouard-Riolle, Dave Potter and Danny Phillips in the latest presentation of the Citrix Cloud Master Class series as they discuss the “better together” aspects of Citrix CloudPlatform and NetScaler. NetScaler integration with CloudPlatform builds on the extensive networking capabilities already provided natively within the virtual router, by adding additional functionality. In this session, we will take a look at one aspect of that additional functionality: automatic scaling, or AutoScale, of CloudPlatform workloads. Learn about use cases that can benefit from auto-scaling: M&A, new product
launch, high-availability and disaster recovery. Understand hypervisor, storage and networking considerations related to auto-scaling. See a step-by-step demonstration of configuring CloudPlatform and NetScaler to automatically scale data center resources up, out and back as workloads and resource requirements change.
