Virtual Workspaces with Citrix Cloud
Using Citrix Cloud brings many benefits to a virtual workspace solution. With the user-consumed resources hosted anywhere, the control element is provided as-a-service from the Citrix Cloud portfolio and connected securely to compute locations. Secure access and presentation can be managed from Citrix Cloud too, massively simplifying the management, administration and infrastructure requirements of complete desktop or application presentation.

Your workforce is changing. Employee needs are evolving. They need the most empowering experience possible. HTG can provide that experience through Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops. Employees get the same secure, virtual experience across operating systems, managed all in a single console.
Citrix and Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD)
Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops is a powerful solution that gives IT full hybrid management of on-premises and Azure-hosted workloads. It’s the fastest path to taking full advantage of your Windows Virtual Desktop and multi-session Windows 10 opportunities. For existing Citrix customers, WVD is a new way to expand into the Azure cloud, and at the same time preserve those on-premises investments. Using the Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service, customers are able to manage these workloads in hybrid fashion using the familiar Citrix tools they know, while taking advantage of new capabilities such as cloud capacity bursting as data center limits are reached.
New customers can use all of the Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktop capabilities to build on top of the easy-to-consume WVD format, leveraging the Azure cloud for unlimited capacity and scale. In addition, organisations can more effectively tackle the challenges of connecting a cloud environment to business-critical, on-premises resources with WAN optimisation from Citrix to ensure an optimised end-user experience.
