Cisco HyperFlex for Citrix Cloud services offers simple deployment

Cisco recently unveiled its new Cisco HyperFlex for Citrix Cloud services, allowing Citrix users to access all of the ease and deployment capabilities of Cisco’s hyperconverged infrastructure. Here’s what you should know about this new hybrid solution and what it could offer for your organization.

About Cisco HyperFlex for Citrix Cloud

This announcement is likely to be especially relevant for organizations that use desktop and application virtualization to support a mobile and distributed workforce. Teams are increasingly using their own devices and completing projects from anywhere. These techniques allow you to safely store data in your organization’s data center rather than on end user’s devices. It also simplifies work for IT professionals, especially when it comes to installing upgrades and patches or onboarding new team members.

However, deploying those cloud infrastructures hasn’t exactly been easy. With the new combination of Citrix Cloud and Cisco HyperFlex allows you to utilize a hybrid environment that is fully supported by both Citrix and Cisco. This makes it easy to deploy while also giving you all of the benefits of a cloud-supported infrastructure for your organization and remote team.

Features of Cisco HyperFlex for Citrix Cloud

The integrated automation feature lets you rapidly deploy Citrix Cloud connectors onto HyperFlex. Once deployment is complete, you can access the Citrix control panel in the cloud and have Citrix manage the cloud environment for you, all while keeping your critical apps and sensitive data in the HyperFlex datacenter. It takes just a few clicks and a handful of hours to complete the initial deployment.

It also offers centralized cloud management for Citrix Workspaces. This means you can have Citrix maintain, upgrade, patch, and back up all of your Citrix infrastructure components. And at the same time, you can enjoy the on-premises capabilities that allow you to meet regulatory and corporate government security requirements. The connection between these two components is managed via stateless Citrix Cloud connectors, meaning you get a secure and encrypted connection between HyperFlex and the Citrix control panel.
