Citrix / Microsoft Announce Cloud Service to Deliver Secure Apps from Azure to Any… MS to wind down Microsoft Azure RemoteApp!
At Citrix Synergy this year, our CEO Kirill Tatarinov provided new insights into our comprehensive Citrix Cloud strategy and how we would continue to make secure app and desktop delivery simple and easy for our customers. He also announced our expanded partnership with Microsoft with the promise that we would unveil additional solutions that take our cloud-first, mobile-first approach to new levels.
In conjunction with this effort, Microsoft recently announced its intent to wind down the Microsoft Azure RemoteApp service and assist Citrix in its effort to develop the next generation of the service. This future Citrix XenApp “express” offering will combine the simplicity and speed of Microsoft Azure RemoteApp with many of the enterprise capabilities of Citrix XenApp to revolutionize app delivery from the cloud.
This new Citrix application virtualization service is part of our comprehensive Citrix Cloud strategy designed to simplify app and desktop delivery for every use case. The Citrix Cloud XenApp and XenDesktop service provides our enterprise customers with superior performance and flexibility by moving the backend infrastructure to the cloud. Now Citrix can combine the power and flexibility of our Citrix Cloud platform including the industry-leading HDX user experience and extend the original simple, prescriptive, and easy-to-consume vision of Microsoft Azure RemoteApp by orchestrating the applications in the cloud as well. This offering will radically simplify app delivery without sacrificing management or end user experience.
In many ways, you can look at this XenApp “express” service as Azure RemoteApp v2.0. You can also see it as the fastest, easiest way to use XenApp in the cloud. Either way, this new service will be the next generation application virtualization and delivery service for Azure.
