Partner verifications are managed through the Citrix Ready Verification Platform (CRVP), our online platform for verification and partner profile management. The CRVP contains the instructions, prerequisites and test scenarios that are required to pass the verifications. Marketplace helps to display the approved offerings. It is recommended that partners complete as many verifications as they have in order to build a stronger profile, so we can promote all the solution offerings that are Citrix Ready.
They typical turn-around for reviewing a verification and validation is 2-3 business days.
Citrix Cloud services unites all of Citrix’s leading technologies and services into a single management and delivery platform. Citrix Cloud services simplify the delivery and management of Citrix technologies extending existing on-premises software deployments and creating a hybrid workspace service. It also helps partners to simplify the configuration and management tasks that they traditionally performed manually. The management platform primarily helps in administration, authentication, service provisioning, licensing and license management, and service monitoring and reporting.
The Citrix Ready CSP Program provides the best practices in the form of test cases allowing partners to build the infrastructure, verify and share the results for validation, which will eventually help CSP partners to build a best-in-class Citrix Cloud infrastructure. It also provides steps so partners can leverage a true hybrid cloud experience where they can utilize their existing infrastructure along with a public cloud.
