Citrix Systems announced that Citrix DaaS (Desktop as a Service) is now available in hybrid cloud and hyperscaler-specific deployment options.
According to a recent global survey, 75 percent of IT and security leaders view DaaS as a key enabler of secure work within their organization, and more than 50 percent have or plan to implement it in the year ahead.
Mark Bowker, Senior Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group, said: “DaaS possesses the unique combination of attributes that appeals to businesses across industries: improved time to value, cost reduction, and enhanced security.”
Citrix DaaS (formerly known as Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops Service), the market-leading cloud service modernizes IT and addresses the needs of distributed workers by providing a secure, agile and easy way to quickly deliver apps or desktops from any cloud or datacenter to any device worldwide.
“We need to be able to deliver a consistent user experience,” said Beau Smithback, Founder and CEO, Envision IT. “With Citrix DaaS, we can spin up a lab without an IT presence on site, and we can do it across the country, and across the world.”
“DaaS business and technology needs are different for every organization,” said Carisa Stringer, Vice President, Product Marketing, Citrix. “Some customers need to balance their existing datacenter resources with cloud expansion goals, and others are new to DaaS and embarking on a cloud-first initiative with their hyperscaler of choice.”
Citrix DaaS is available in two options:
Hybrid DaaS – Provides maximum flexibility to manage on-prem and cloud environments together and rapid provisioning, streamlined cloud management, and comprehensive tools to deliver hybrid work solutions.
DaaS for Hyperscalers – Designed for simplicity, the turnkey solution allows for rapid deployment of apps and desktops on public clouds, including Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.
