Executive Opinion

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

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

Google Cloud and Citrix Systems collaboration

DaaS refers to a cloud-based offering where the vendor offers virtual desktops to end-users over the web via individual-based subscriptions. The vendor will take care of the backend management, which includes the backup, data storage, updates, and maintenance needs. Some of the advantages of DaaS include faster deployment, faster IT support response for end-users, and support for a wide range of bringing your own device use cases.

Apart from Citrix, some other companies that Google Cloud partners for DaaS and related solutions include the VMware Horizon 7, itopia, and Nutanix.

Under the partnership, Citrix will become a strategic virtual desktop service partner of Google Cloud Platform.

Apart from that, Citrix will also build a foundation of their cloud services on the Google Cloud, starting with the Citrix management plane that is said to enable a cloud-hosted desktop to stream any app on an endpoint device.
