SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Citrix today announced the availability of Citrix
CloudPlatform™ 4.2, a single, unified
cloud orchestration solution powered by Apache
CloudStack, and Citrix
CloudPortal™ Business Manager 2.1, a web portal that manages the
delivery of cloud services. The latest versions of these cloud solutions
from Citrix enable organizations to future-proof their cloud services
strategy by efficiently running both traditional enterprise and
cloud-native workloads via an application-centric approach, while also
simplifying the management aspects of offering IT-as-a-Service (ITaaS).
Today’s customers are adopting the cloud to increase efficiency, agility
and business growth by rapidly innovating and delivering new cloud
services. To realize the full potential of the cloud, businesses realize
they must expand beyond the initial cloud-native scale-out use cases
such as Dev/Test or Big Data to incorporate the vast base of existing
scale-up, enterprise workloads such as ERP apps and Windows workloads
into a standardized cloud architecture. The challenge customers face is
that most cloud architectures are optimized for one or the other
workload, but not both. By focusing on optimizing for all applications
versus a specific workload, Citrix CloudPlatform and Citrix CloudPortal
Business Manager provide a flexible foundation for the journey toward an
ITaaS delivery model.

the flexibility to handle any application—it provides infrastructure

applications require, and cost-efficient scale-out failover capabilities
for cloud-native applications. As a result, Citrix CloudPlatform 4.2
benefits both service providers and enterprise customers, with features
that support their specific business needs:
