Build your own hybrid cloud migration strategy

Make the most of every investment as you migrate apps to the cloud

Is your organization struggling with IT complexity? If so, you're far from alone. More than half of IT executives say cumbersome infrastructure and a lack of cloud investments is preventing them from embracing digital transformation. Others have attempted combining private and public clouds, with mixed results. In either scenario, it’s a big lift. And you need a way to streamline the process. With modern hybrid cloud solutions to smooth migrations, you can create the strategy that works best for your business. At whatever pace you prefer.

Executive summary

  • Many organizations are looking to accelerate cloud migrations to increase IT agility, but this shift can be complex.
  • With so many options, from keeping some apps on premises to leveraging multiple cloud platforms, there's no one-size-fits-all approach.
  • Citrix solutions make it easy to create the hybrid cloud environment that works best for your business.


Business outcomes

Move to the cloud on your terms

There’s no one-size-fits-all journey to the cloud. Some organizations need to stay in the datacenter for compliance and regulatory reasons. Others prefer public cloud hosting. And for many, the ideal solution falls somewhere in the middle. Only Citrix provides full flexibility to manage on-premises virtual desktop infrastructure side-by-side with public clouds, so you can embrace public, private, and on-premises resources however you see fit. There's no pressure to move workloads to the cloud before you're ready. But when you need to provision rapidly or support an expanding hybrid workforce, the option is always there.

Improve your security posture

When sourcing cloud services from multiple vendors, inconsistent security policies can be a big challenge. Most CISOs manage at least 16 different cybersecurity tools2. And IT leaders list everything from API vulnerabilities to ransomware as major concerns3. With Citrix DaaS and other digital workspace solutions, it’s easy to manage risk across public and private clouds. You can expand IT capabilities to prevent risks before they lead to breaches. Protect apps and APIs across any cloud or microservices architecture. Enable secure access to applications from any location, device, and network. All while ensuring your users can access the resources they need, no matter how it’s deployed.

Deliver a consistent experience

With applications and resources distributed across so many different environments, there’s no way to know when a network failure or cloud outage may impact your users. Which is a big concern, since unplanned downtime costs 35% more than planned outages.3 That’s why Citrix solutions are purpose-built for resiliency. Streamline app delivery across cloud and on-premises environments with the single code base of Citrix ADC. Or opt to automate with Citrix App Delivery and Security service, which continuously monitors some 10 billion data points to ensure users are never sent to sites that are unavailable or slow. And when you deliver virtual apps and desktops, specialized HDX technology from Citrix DaaS keeps digital workspaces in high definition regardless of deployment model.

Gain holistic visibility

As you adopt new architectures, the diversity of hybrid cloud application migrations can lead to silos. This creates complications when it comes to managing app delivery. And it wipes out the contextual visibility you need when troubleshooting application issues. With Citrix, these challenges can be solved quickly. Because you can’t fix what you can't see, Citrix Application Delivery Management provides holistic visibility across all environments regardless of ADC form factor, with a single pane of glass across multi-cloud.
