Citrix Ready workspace hub is the central piece of the Citrix Workspace IoT solution . Citrix Ready workspace hub replaces HDX Ready Pi as it evolves to solve more use cases than just being a thin client. It is built on the Raspberry Pi 3 client with the Citrix workspace hub software as well as Stratodesk software. It is available via Citrix Ready partners NComputing and ViewSonic. The Citrix Ready workspace hub is a fully assembled device which can act as a thin client, replace your desk phones, and smart card readers. With software updates, the hub will soon solve innovative use cases around enterprise IoT dealing with workplace transformation, conference room of the future and more.
Raspberry Pi™ based thin client delivers the compelling economics of consumer devices. Citrix Ready verification ensures that it meets the performance, security and manageability demands of an enterprise-grade zero client. Device cost is no longer a barrier for using desktop virtualization to execute PC refresh, Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 strategies.

The Citrix Ready workspace hub adds the following capabilities over HDX Ready pi.
Citrix Casting is a new innovative capability which allows end users to
The price is for a fully packaged and assembled Raspberry Pi 3, including preloaded Flash storage with OS and device management software, power supply, and Citrix Receiver. Large volume orders may qualify for bulk discounts. Keyboard, mouse and monitor are available for separate purchase, like any other thin client.
The Citrix Ready workspace hub contains Citrix HDX optimization using the HDX system-on-chip SDK. Unlike the standard Raspberry Pi that is generally sold without any accessories, Citrix Ready workspace hub is fully assembled, and it is sold and supported by Citrix Ready partners, making it simple to deploy and operate without any additional time or effort.
The compatibility of Citrix Ready workspace hub is listed on the Marketplace profiles of ViewSonic and NComputing. Testing has been completed with Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, including both Web Interface and StoreFront.
Advanced capabilities such as Citrix Casting requires Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops platinum. The Citrix Ready workspace hub can be managed standalone as a thin client. Citrix Endpoint Management can simplify the management by providing a unified endpoint management solution to manage all endpoint via a single console.
The Citrix Receiver for Linux 13.5 is preinstalled with the thin client. The Citrix HDX RealTime Media Engine (client component of the HDX RealTime Optimization Pack 4.3) will also be included in the future. No further installation is necessary.
