It said the new collection of enabling technologies makes it easy to set up ‘Windows-as-a-Service’ hosting businesses that are simpler to run, less costly and better optimised for mobile devices.
The Citrix Cloud Provider Pack delivers the next generation of seamless app technologies that combines all app experiences into a single, cloud-hosted desktop, it added.
The pack will be available by the end of March and will support hosted shared apps and desktops running on Citrix XenApp 6.5. The pack will be provided free of charge to all CSPs using the ‘premium’ edition. The Mobility Pack is currently available for all editions of XenApp 6.5.
“Gone are the days when apps could be contained to the desktop or the data centre. Now they originate from personal, private and public clouds. Cloud providers need solutions to grow and manage their businesses efficiently, while providing the applications and device flexibility their customers require.,” said Aaron White, regional director MEA at Citrix.
“The Citrix Cloud Provider Pack brings Desktop-as-a-Service to a new level by delivering advanced technologies that make life easier for cloud providers while providing an enhanced experience for end users,” he added.
