Why Customers are Moving Citrix Based Windows Desktops and Applications to AWS Cloud

Gurprit Singh | 13 Dec 2020 | Newsletter

In today’s dynamic environment agility is the basis of business. Organizations must be responsive to cope with fast changing regulatory requirements, highly fluctuating economic conditions, evolving consumer habits and disruptive business models. Monolithic infrastructure is unable to support the needs of rapidly changing business requirements and so organizations are adopting public Cloud to become inherently agile.
Traditional IT set ups are often besieged with sprawling infrastructure with large server farms and hundreds of users accessing the network across multiple devices. Managing such an environment along with the threat of shadow IT and isolated, forgotten servers make enterprise security an administrative nightmare. Yet the role of technology is crucial to enable business agility and adaptability.

Cloud is helping organizations modernize the way IT services are delivered and there is a surge in moving Windows desktop and applications on Citrix to AWS Cloud. Citrix Cloud enables digital workspace and delivers apps, data and desktop in real time on any device, with unified endpoint management (UEM).
Citrix is a leader in the Virtual desktop Infrastructure market with 53% market share according to VDI Like a Pro End User Computing, 2019. As a market leader Citrix has pioneered the migration of virtual Windows environments to the Cloud partnering with AWS. These efforts have resulted in two innovative concepts—secure perimeter and digital workspace. Citrix secure perimeter recognizes the consumerization of IT and identifies the user as the new perimeter. While its digital workspace is an integrated technology framework designed to facilitate employee productivity by enabling secure access to applications and data in real-time on any device, at any location via Cloud services or through the datacenter.

So, what are the benefits of moving Citrix-Windows workloads to AWS Cloud

Citrix and AWS have partnered since 2010 to enable reliable, scalable and secure alternative to on-premise deployments of Citrix solutions and workloads.

Specific benefits of deploying Citrix on AWS Cloud include the following:

Citrix Workspace on AWS delivers users a seamless experience while enabling IT to simplify control via unified platform. AWS complements Citrix Workspace by providing a global footprint and a choice of EC2 instances optimized to meet performance needs of any workloads. Citrix and AWS have collaboratively prepared The AWS Quick Start for Citrix ADC to enable easy migration by automating configuration and reducing time, costs and skills involved.
