Citrix Systems and Google Cloud are joining to strengthen their strategic cooperation to provide enterprise customers with the future of hybrid work. Citrix will introduce a new Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) product on Google Cloud as part of the businesses’ new partnership. Citrix’s management plane and market-leading HDX protocol will be used in the service to enable the smooth delivery of virtualized applications and desktops on Google Cloud. The expanded relationship will give distributed and hybrid workers secure access to the tools and information they need to engage and be productive, regardless of where they are.

 “Enterprises are no longer struggling with whether they should embrace remote work, but how quickly and efficiently they can do it,” said Tim Minahan, Executive Vice President of Business Strategy, Citrix.

Further said, “Through this partnership with Google Cloud, we will help customers accelerate and embrace hybrid work models with new virtual desktop services on Google Cloud’s global and secure network.” 

Under the terms of an expanded agreement:

• Citrix will build a foundation of their cloud services on Google Cloud, starting with a Citrix purpose-built management plane that will enable cloud-hosted desktops to stream any application on any endpoint device

 • Google will become a preferred and strategic cloud partner for Citrix

• Citrix will build a foundation of their cloud services on Google Cloud, starting with a Citrix purpose-built management plane that will enable cloud-hosted desktops to stream any application on any endpoint device

 “For teams to thrive in a distributed environment, they need easy, fast, and secure access to applications and workspaces from virtually anywhere,” said Kevin Ichhpurani, Corporate Vice President, Global Ecosystem at Google Cloud.

He added, “We’re excited to partner with Citrix to help organizations support remote work in the long-term, with low-latency and trusted access to desktops and applications across all types of devices, endpoints, and work environments.”

Citrix and Google Cloud have worked closely together for years, and this announcement is the culmination of that collaboration. Customers like Telecom Italia are eager to take advantage of it.

 “Telecom Italia (TIM) is always keen to identify the most advanced solutions available on the market to further improve its services. It’s clear that Google Cloud and Citrix each know how to leverage the others’ technology,” said Mauro Maccagnani, Head of Digital Enterprise Solutions, Telecom Italia.

Further said, “Citrix technology is effectively plug-and-play on Google Cloud, and you can set it up very easily.”
