Citrix Workspace Cloud coming this quarter

By

Citrix Workspace Cloud was originally announced at the company's Synergy 2015 conference for delivery sometime in 2015, but Citrix has now revealed that it will be released this quarter.

Citrix Workspace Cloud enables "a repeatable, automated business" for service providers, allowing them to deliver a "business-ready workplace-as-a-service" including the virtual desktop itself, applications and other services, Citrix senior director of cloud services product management Joe Vaccaro (pictured) told a packed crowd at the Citrix Mobility Conference 2015 in Sydney today.

The company already has 1,900 active partners, including 200 in Australia and New Zealand, delivering more than 500,000 desktops, he said.

Citrix Workspace Cloud supports multiple hypervisors and multiple clouds, including AWS, Azure and Google, so customers can choose where to run their workspaces.

It allows providers to set up workspace templates for easy deployment of software from Citrix and other vendors - "a recipe for how this will be deployed," said Vaccaro. This means providers can, for example, bundle together applications relevant to particular roles, and take care of any prerequisites or other dependencies.

Another feature is 'Concierge' for delivering realtime support via video chat, screen sharing and so on.

Citrix Workspace Cloud has already been deployed by a number of early adopters around the world, including 20 in Australia and New Zealand, Vaccaro said. They have found that the time saved in running the systems can be better used to ensure a improved user experience and to tackle new opportunities.

Prices for Citrix Workspace Cloud have yet to be announced.
