Citrix Cloud services are now available to Citrix Service Provider (CSP) partners, bringing a set of new options for CSPs to deliver digital workspace solutions for their customers.
Citrix Cloud provides CSPs new options for solution deployment and delivery by offering the breadth of the Citrix portfolio “as-a-service.” Citrix Cloud is a powerful delivery platform that enables partners to address a broad range of customer types and use cases. With a diverse set of digital workspace offerings spanning across apps, desktops, networking, security, mobility and productivity, partners can provide solutions to their customers without the infrastructure, expertise, time, and resources required by traditional on-premises deployments. The “any and many” cloud approach of Citrix Cloud gives partners flexibility to run customer workload in public cloud or use existing data centers and private clouds – or a mix of both.
The following services are made available to CSPs via the Citrix Cloud:
- XenApp and XenDesktop Service
- NetScaler Gateway Service
- Content Collaboration service (Sharefile)
- XenMobile Service
- The full solution (including all above four services is called Workspace Service).
Additional services built on the Citrix Cloud especially for service providers are the following:
- License Usage Insights Service (LUI) for managing service provider and customer Citrix licenses.
- Customer Dashboard includes basic features for customer managed from the CSP perspective.
- Smart Tools, which include various tools for planning, migration, scalability planning, support, ticketing and monitoring/alerts.
- Secure browser service
