Citrix has announced its intent to take its cloud-first, mobile-first approach to new heights through its partnership with Microsoft by developing the next generation of the Azure RemoteApp service. The offering will combine the simplicity and speed of Microsoft Azure RemoteApp with many of the enterprise capabilities of Citrix XenApp to revolutionize app delivery from the cloud.
The new Citrix application virtualization service is part of the comprehensive Citrix Cloud strategy designed to simplify app and desktop delivery for every user case. The Citrix Cloud XenApp and XenDesktop service provides enterprise customers with superior performance and flexibility by moving the backend infrastructure to the cloud.
Citrix can combine the power and flexibility of the Citrix Cloud platform including the industry-leading HDX user experience and extend the original simple, prescriptive, and easy-to-consume vision of Microsoft Azure RemoteApp by orchestrating the applications in the cloud as well.
““Working alongside Microsoft, we are developing a migration service to minimize disruption to existing RemoteApp customers. This will also simplify app provisioning, enhance monitoring, strengthen security and optimize the app delivery experience, which are key features that our customers have come to depend on. At Citrix, we are committed to our partnership with Microsoft and will continue to unveil additional solutions that take our cloud-first, mobile-first approach to new levels,” said Johnny Karam, Regional Vice President, Middle East, Turkey and Africa, Citrix.
