The benefits of greater IT agility, elasticity, savings and efficiency are driving many enterprises to adopt cloud computing. However, enterprise applications commonly depend on shared services, including directories and databases, which reside in the on-premise datacenter. These applications must be made to work in the cloud without migrating or duplicating the shared services.
Citrix OpenCloud is a pragmatic approach that makes the move to the cloud simpler and more successful for enterprises and service providers. OpenCloud offers enterprises the choice to leverage infrastructure technologies already in place or to add new ones, to connect their datacenters seamlessly to external clouds, and to provision applications and deliver them to their users.
