Citrix WorkspacePod Enabling Converged and Hyperconverged Infrastructure
We announced WorkspacePod (CWP) at Summit. WorkspacePod is a fully integrated workload agnostic software stack, that enables converged and hyperconverged infrastructure, to deliver the Citrix mobile Workspace experience. Let’s break that up a bit so better understand what it means. Firstly Citrix remains a software company. We are not getting into the actual hardware business. What fully integrated software stack means is that the software that makes up WorkspacePod integrates with the underlying hyperconverged or converged infrastructure below and the hypervisor and workloads above in the stack. Workload agnostic is where we are headed, and in it’s first edition WSP supports XD and XA. The customer experience is the number one priority by Citrix and whatever enables this needs to work seamlessly without interruption to the users.
We Are Running An Early Adopter Program for WorkspacePodNow.
The purpose of the program (EAP) is to validate CWP, to prove the solution through feedback and suggestions from the customers and to prepare for launch of CWP to the broader market through all our existing Sales, Services and Support field teams and channel partners. The program is running together with HP and DataON. We plan to GA CWP at Synergy and the EAP is a stepping-stone to get there. Our goal is to demonstrate success with customers that have validated CWP, during Synergy. We are looking for 50 prospects, we’ll work with you to qualify the opportunities to do 10-12 near term deployments. Our partner HP have already started brining us HP Moonshot – Citrix CWP opportunities! They have committed to brining us 25 opportunities and we need to match that!
