Automates Cloud Management to Drive Service Provider Channel Growth

(PresseBox) ( Santa Clara, Calif., )
Citrix today announced new technology solutions that will provide additional services and revenue opportunities for the rapidly expanding Citrix Service Provider (CSP) channel. Available today, Cloud Provider Pack 2 gives service providers powerful, industry-leading technology that enables a simple approach to providing differentiated and vertical-specific Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) offerings delivered with Citrix XenApp® and Citrix XenDesktop®. Citrix Cloud Provider Pack 2 includes new Application Orchestration technology that automates sophisticated hosting-related tasks, such as management of infrastructure allocation, application placement and networking, in Citrix multi-tenant hosting environments. It also provides portal-based provisioning to simplify Windows-related provisioning operations for hosting providers through a new release of CloudPortal™ Services Manager. Service providers can easily leverage cloud multi-tenancy with prescriptive reference architectures on a variety of cloud architectures, including Citrix CloudPlatform™ powered by Apache CloudStack®.

"We continue to double down on our commitment to our industry-leading DaaS service provider partner program, creating technologies that help them build differentiated businesses by enabling both desktops and apps as a service. The delivery of new technology solutions and relationships with major industry players will help grow this key channel, and fulfill an important technology need for end customers. No other vendor on the market, other than Citrix, has this strong mix of technology to enable service providers."

In addition, service providers have access to a choice of multi-tenancy models with virtualization- and cloud-neutral reference architectures. The powerful combination of leading technology and marketing support allows CSPs to create highly-differentiated, verticalized, and high-value services for their customers.
