Citrix to Launch Workspace for Google Cloud

Sponsored by Businesswire

The race to the cloud is on and it’s about to pick up speed. Citrix
Systems, Inc.
®(NASDAQ:CTXS) today announced plans to extend Citrix®
Workspace™ to Google
, expanding the flexibility and choice companies have in
transitioning to the cloud by enabling them to quickly and efficiently
deliver apps to Google devices and operating systems and create a
superior digital work experience that unleashes productivity and
innovation. The news came during Citrix
, the premier digital work conference taking place in Atlanta
this week.

“As companies move more apps to the cloud, they need an easy, secure way
for employees to access them anywhere, anytime from any device,” said
David Henshall, President and CEO, Citrix. “In delivering Citrix
Workspace for Google Cloud, we are enabling our customers to accelerate
their digital transformations and deliver a simple, intuitive experience
for their users.”

“Many of our customers have existing software and infrastructure
investments, yet still want the freedom to invest in their cloud
future,” said Rob Enslin, President Global Customer Operations, Google
Cloud. “In expanding our partnership with Citrix, we can better help
these customers with their transformations by enabling them to access
and run the apps their businesses depend on anywhere—simply, flexibly
and securely.”

A Productivity Powerhouse

Extending Citrix Workspace beyond Citrix
Virtual Apps and Desktops
for companies using Google Cloud will
enable them to modernize their apps and deliver unified access across
Google devices and operating systems to create a productivity powerhouse
for employees and IT administrators alike.

Planned interoperability with Google’s Cloud Identity, for instance,
will allow for the seamless authentication of users using G Suite
credentials to access Citrix Workspace, which will provide a more secure
and unified end-user experience. In addition, the integration of
intelligent capabilities into G Suite will enable companies to
automatically notify employees of important events from their Google
calendars through personalized feeds within Citrix Workspace. This will
create a simple, intelligent experience that boosts engagement and
productivity by reducing frustration from constantly switching apps and
searching for information.

“With Citrix and Google Cloud Platform, we have the possibility to
create a compelling work experience that has a tremendous effect on
efficiency and employee satisfaction,” said Mari Wasström, IT Solutions
Service Management Lead, Neste. “Instead of a solution based in Finland,
we now have a global concept that we can deploy to all our sites
worldwide giving users a fast and secure application user experience
from the cloud.”

Enterprise-Grade VDI

Using Citrix
Virtual Apps and Desktops
Machine Creation Service (MCS), IT will be
able to quickly and efficiently provision Windows-based Citrix workloads
at scale and create a modern digital work environment in which employees
can access all of the tools they need to collaborate and perform at
their best. Automated provisioning for Google Cloud Platform is
available on demand today and will be rolled out to all customers in the
third quarter of 2019. Linux virtual desktops from Citrix will soon be
supported on GCP as well.

Highly Reliable Application Delivery

Keeping users engaged and productive requires organizations to ensure an
always-on infrastructure. This can be a challenge in hybrid cloud
environments, but with Citrix Workspace for Google Cloud, companies can
leverage the powerful combination of Citrix
and Citrix
to optimize and secure connectivity when transporting
applications from GCP or connecting users to those resources.

Changing the Game

We officially live in a hybrid, multi-cloud world. And it’s changing the
game for IT. “In the old days, all the apps people needed to do their
jobs were on their laptops. Now, some are local, some are in corporate
datacenters, some are in the cloud,” Henshall said. “In extending Citrix
Workspace to Google Cloud, we’re giving companies greater flexibility
and choice in how they deploy the SaaS, cloud, and web apps their
employees need to be engaged and productive and a simple, efficient way
to do it.”
