Unfortunately, traditional on-premise information technology:

• Is difficult to scale

• Requires hard-to-find talent to administer and manage

• Delays time to value due to long deployment lead times

• Requires accurate estimates of required capacity, months or even

years in advance

• Demands significant upfront capital expenditures

Cloud technologies offer an affordable, scalable alternative, yet many

companies aren’t ready to shift their entire IT landscapes to the cloud.

Some firms want to host some business-critical applications on-premise,

using their own compute resources. Yet they also want to use an

Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering—where a provider owns the

technology equipment and takes responsibility for housing, running and

maintaining it—to host applications and desktops in the cloud. For these

firms, choosing between an all-cloud or an all on-premise solution is no

choice at all.

Citrix can help.

High-pressure, rapidly changing business conditions leave little room for technology solutions that gobble your budget, staff resources and patience. Instead, you need a technology infrastructure that excels at serving the business—a solution that is flexible, simple and cost-effective.

For all IaaS public cloud deployments, capital expenditures are reduced

and agility and ROI improve because you pay only for what you need,

when you need it.

Want to deploy your server farm in the cloud? Need a cloud provider to

manage and administer parts or all of your IT infrastructure? The choice is

yours. As your needs change, the service adapts to meet your requirements.

Enhanced operational flexibility, choice and efficiency

Build the hybrid cloud computing

infrastructure that meets your unique needs.

Avoid having to buy more capacity to deal

with sudden business spikes.

Reduced capital expenditures

Avoid costs associated with ensuring

uptime and maintaining compute, storage

and networking hardware or replacing

old equipment.

Faster speed of service

Quickly meet changing demand for desktops

and applications due to seasonal needs or

organizational growth.

Higher user satisfaction

Provision XenDesktop and XenApp workloads

faster and more efficiently using intelligent

resource management.

Decreased project risk

Deploy applications exactly where they are

needed, on-premise or in the cloud. Public

IaaS gives you the instant ability to right size

your farm, ensuring you always have the right

mix of capacity vs. cost. You no longer need to

guess at how much hardware to buy because

a public cloud already has it racked and

powered on demand.

Maximized choice

Mix and match IT infrastructure components,

blending on-premise and cloud, or choose a

cloud provider by price, feature/function,

location/proximity or areas of expertise.

Improved IT agility

Grow and change your IT infrastructure to

meet evolving business needs.

Enhanced compliance

Meet regulatory mandates for data sovereignty

with services from regional providers. Only a

multi-cloud platform such as a Citrix solution

provides cloud-powered apps and desktop

delivery with capacity via a network of regional

providers across many sovereign locations.

Increased scalability

Support for business transformation

Own less and do more with the freedom of a

new hybrid cloud model.

Boosting business valueBy building on the proven value of IaaS solutions, Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop in the cloud offer significant financial, management and operational benefits.
