Reasons to migrate to Citrix Daas on Microsoft Azure

Hybrid work is here to stay, and IT managers must balance PC management that not only
meets security requirements but also provides employees with resources to get work done
without inconvenience.

Companies that run the Citrix Daas service with Microsoft Azure have seen improved desktop management and security. Cloud flexibility has helped reduce support calls, IT resource needs, and other costs while also increasing agility. End users, including remote and hybrid workers, benefit with reduced issues and interruptions.

1. Migrate on your terms

When migrating to the cloud, datacenter investments may keep you grounded. Only Citrix cloud services enable you to manage existing on-premises Citrix deployments alongside new Windows Virtual Desktop VMs in Azure. Deploy a hybrid cloud mix of technologies or go all-in with a fully cloud-hosted deployment, so you can make the most of existing datacenter investments while leveraging the cost savings benefits of Citrix Cloud with Azure and Windows Virtual Desktop.

2. Simplify management & adapt faster

Using the Citrix centralized management plane, business disruptions don’t have to mean service interruptions. In times of global uncertainty, or even routine maintenance, you can deploy additional workloads on Azure across multiple regions or data centers. Scale to the cloud with flexible IT management, maintaining on-premises investments, resources, and policies. Simply put, you can extend the reach of IT while maintaining business continuity and keeping users productive.

3. Accelerate Azure time-to-value with Citrix Cloud

Deploying traditional software on-premises can be complex and time consuming. Hardware procurement delays, manual installation, configuration, and staging steps all take up valuable time and resources. But with streamlined cloud-based deployment and operations tools, customers can increase the speed with which services can be deployed. Citrix Cloud services on Microsoft Azure vastly reduce (or eliminate) the costs and delay associated with deployment, so customers can quickly serve their internal line-of-business customers. When migrating Citrix workloads to Azure, customers can save up to 30-50% on operational costs over three years.
