Citrix Systems this week announced the launch of Citrix Managed Desktops, a cloud-hosted offering that enables organizations to provision Windows-based applications and desktops from the cloud to any device, anywhere in a simple, unified manner.

A turnkey service delivered in close collaboration with a robust ecosystem of Citrix partners, Citrix Managed Desktops provides everything needed to securely deliver Windows desktops and applications with simplicity and speed. 

Citrix Managed Desktops provides all the benefits of a traditional Citrix application delivery solution combined with the simplified deployment and lower cost associated with utilization of the Microsoft Azure cloud services and can be used to support and extend the value of Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops and Workspace solutions across the enterprise.

And leveraging a built-in multi-tenant management user interface, Citrix partners can build customized services directly on top of Citrix Managed Desktops, creating additional value across vertical markets.

Citrix Managed Desktops is a simple, scalable and manageable solution that just works by leveraging the robustness of Microsoft Azure, and we are excited to use it to build desktops-as-a-service offerings with ease at a cost-per-desktop that is affordable for our clients.
