Citrix Workspace Cloud – What is it?

Citrix Workspace cloud has been in technical preview since early 2014, its now here :o) Workspace Cloud essentially replaces your traditional Citrix management infrastructure with an easier to use cloud based management service. The Cloud based service enables organisations to centralise and simplify the design and deployment of virtual apps (XenApp) and desktops (XenDesktop), mobility management (XenMobile) and secure file-sharing solutions (ShareFile). The centralised management service does not care where these components are installed either.

Workspace Cloud gives enabled organisation to deploy applications and desktops on premise, in the cloud (public or private) or a combination of all of these. This is all made possible via the Workspace Cloud control-plane and connector.

Virtual Workspace will be taking Workspace Cloud for a test drive over the coming months and you can expect to see more and more up and close articles and demonstrations.

However in the meantime the attached videos (Gunnar Berger @ Citrix) will give you a taster of Workspace Cloud in action
