Use a hybrid cloud deployment

Want to deploy your current Citrix software in a cloud, but manage the solution on-premises? Citrix is the only solution provider to allow a hybrid cloud deployment. You can deploy XenApp or XenDesktop workloads in a public cloud, such as Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services, and manage those workloads through locally-installed XenApp and XenDesktop or as a fully-managed service through Citrix Cloud. Use Smart Tools to help automate the deployment process, scale up and down public cloud infrastructure to match demand and proactively discover and solve issues before they impact users.

Work with a Citrix Service Provider

Do you have a desire to outsource your entire virtual app or desktop environment as a turn-key service? Engage a Citrix Service Provider and subscribe to hosted, enterprise-class Citrix services to get started quickly with Desktops-as-a-Service. No technical knowledge required.  

Deploy XenApp and XenDesktop on premises

Deploy XenApp or XenDesktop in your own environment and centralize management in your data center. Use Smart Tools blueprints to securely and reliably deploy your Citrix environment. Additionally, you can work with a Citrix partner, utilize Citrix consulting services, or receive training to help with your deployment.
