7 Benefits of a Hosted Citrix Cloud Solution

Connectria’s Citrix Hosting enables organizations to focus on their core business and leave server responsibilities to our experienced, Citrix-certified engineers. Traditional app migration to the cloud often requires years of expensive development and suffers from slow user adoption.

With virtualized access to your Windows applications, Citrix provides a quick and cost-effective path towards migrating your traditional desktop apps to the cloud. We can help you deliver a seamless user experience in the cloud almost immediately. So your entire remote workforce will have secure, high availability access to your mission-critical applications.

What are Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops?

Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (formerly XenApp and XenDesktop) lets IT transform Windows apps and entire desktops into on-demand services delivered securely to web-based workspaces on any device, in any location. Windows app and desktop virtualization powered by Citrix provides benefits beyond standard Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) appliance solutions, delivering fully-functioning virtual Windows or Linux desktops and the apps employees need to remain productive. A virtual desktop delivered by Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops looks and feels the same as a locally installed desktop.
