Why Move your XenApp and XenDesktop to the Cloud
“We've seen the trend of moving IT off-prem for years now & it's why we support our customers wherever they are: on-prem, off-prem, or both.” ~Citrix CEO David Henshall
Cloud technology has many benefits for companies of all sizes and verticals, and organizations are increasingly moving solutions to the cloud. Running Citrix XenApp or Citrix XenDesktop on-premise for your Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) initiative? Did you know that you can also run your Citrix instance in the cloud? We’re finding more and more organizations that have been paying for Citrix licenses are converting their licenses to the cloud and here’s why:
Converting Licenses to the Cloud
One of the best things about converting to cloud solutions is flexibility. It’s not an “all or nothing” deal. You can choose to convert all your Citrix VDI licenses at once or choose to move a few to a monthly subscription in the cloud. Whatever situation works best for your business, you have the freedom to choose.
Running Citrix in the Cloud
You can move your entire DaaS solution to our cloud platform so that users continue to use the Citrix Receiver to access their hosted workspaces, but the backend is all running on dinCloud. Through a simple and intuitive console, your IT admins can click to provision or de-provision or configure each VM, handing the power back to you.
No more VDI Headaches
By choosing to convert your DaaS implementation to a cloud based solution, you avoid the day to day headaches of managing the servers, network, and storage hardware along with the typical data center challenges. You also don’t have to worry about power, cooling, and redundancy since that is all taken care of. And you avoid dealing with the annual maintenance and end of life of the technology since dinCloud will continue to refresh the technology. Not only does this decrease your day to day management of your DaaS solution, but reduces your costs.
