I have been waiting for this for a while now, and it is finally here. Machine Creation Service for Google Cloud was introduced at Citrix Synergy 2019.
Citrix is all about choice
The introduction of Machine Creation Service for Google Cloud is a perfect example of choice. The customer can choose from running their workloads in Azure, Google Cloud, AWS, or any other cloud. They can even run workloads in different clouds as well. This means that you can choose a machine type in one cloud that suits a specific task and chooses another machine type in another cloud. This really shows that Citrix is all in on a choice.
What does Machine Creation Service for Google Cloud mean for me?
Machine Creation Service for Google Cloud means that it is now possible to easily spin up new workloads for Citrix Apps and Desktops. Also, it enables administrators to run a controlled rollout of new applications and updates and be able to do rollbacks if this becomes necessary.
Machine Creation Service for Google Cloud is available now
David Henshall announced that Machine Creation Service for Google Cloud is available right away. Machine Creation Service for Google Cloud will be available for Citrix Cloud customers on demand and will be rolled out in Q3 2019.
With this release, it is now easier to run your workloads in the cloud. Now, you can deliver apps and desktops, using Citrix and Google technology, in your business without investing in a single piece of hardware.
At Citrix Synergy, there was a session on Google Cloud and what to know. You can watch that session here:
