Features

  • User experience - Provision a dedicated VMware environment in 30 minutes, Google Cloud Identities simplifies the process of setting up of VDA workload in the cloud. And, with our enterprise-grade infrastructure, we can handle as many end-users as needed, and when you need to expand, you can add capacity in as little at 15 minutes.
  • Networking - VMware-based Citrix environments in VMware Engine are configured directly on VPC subnets. This means you can use standard mechanisms - such as Cloud Interconnect and Cloud VPN to connect to the service, as they would to any other service in Google Cloud. This architecture eliminates the complexity of establishing additional, expensive, bandwidth-limited connectivity that may need to be assigned explicitly.
  • Services - In addition to its native capabilities, VMware platform is valuable because of its rich ecosystem that meets any IT need imaginable. On VMware, you often have third-party tooling configured for DR, backup, monitoring, or security. Since VMware Engine provides a native VMware platform, you can bring such tools without changes.

Advantages

  • Consistency - Run Citrix VDA workloads on a native VMware software stack so no changes are needed to your tools or processes when you operate in the Cloud. Because it is a native VMware environment, you simply migrate your on-prem Citrix application to the new environment in the Cloud. This gets you up and running faster.  
  • Operational Continuity - Your admins run the same tools on Citrix Cloud to manage Citrix environment as they do on-premises. No training required, and no interruption to service.
  • Scalability - Meet the dynamic needs of your organization on-demand, with the ability to expand or shrink your environment in minutes. And, take advantage of the same storage apps you use on-premises, in Google Cloud to save costs on long terms archiving of content.
