Connectria Named as Launch Partner for Citrix to AWS Accelerator Program

Customers Able To Leverage Amazon Financial Incentives and Connectria’s Expertise to Migrate Citrix Workloads to the AWS Cloud

ST. LOUIS, MO, May 24, 2016 – Connectria Hosting, a global cloud hosting provider, Amazon Managed Services Partner and Citrix Service Provider, today announced its participation as a launch partner in Amazon Web Services (AWS) Accelerator Program for Citrix.

The AWS Accelerator Program is designed to provide an easy migration path for on-premise Citrix customers to move to the AWS Cloud. It allows customers to deploy up to 25-users during a 60-day trial migration period. The program also allows customers to migrate their existing licenses of Citrix XenApp, XenDesktop, and NetScaler to AWS with access to the Citrix Lifecycle Management tool, and includes a $5,000.00 credit towards AWS services. Connectria has significant experience helping organizations move their Citrix workloads to AWS, and is available to assist customers with implementation services and support, both during the trial period and afterwards.

As a certified Citrix Service Provider, Connectria has provided Citrix Hosting and Managed Services since 2003, longer than any other hosting company, and has been supporting complex Citrix deployments in AWS for more than a year.

“We’re proud to have been selected as a launch services partner,” noted Rich Waidmann, Connectria President and CEO. “As a longstanding partner of both Citrix and AWS, our inclusion in the Accelerator Program launch demonstrates their recognition of Connectria as an expert in both AWS and Citrix. We’ve moved more than 1,000 Citrix users to AWS prior to this launch, and we look forward to taking advantage of the Accelerator Program incentives and tools to help additional customers with their Citrix migrations.”

AWS will be sponsoring Citrix Synergy this week in Las Vegas and will be at booth #770. If you’re planning to attend Synergy, please stop by the AWS booth and mention Connectria’s name.
