I constantly get organizations that are surprised and don’t know Nexus, a Stratos Company is a big player with Citrix. They are a significant part of our reference architecture and go to partners for our End User Computing Practice and Cloud Practice. In fact I’ve been selling and working working with Citrix solutions since the original Winframe days (late 90′s). Ahhhh, the technology has advanced significantly since then.
This past week (7/19) Citrix did a National Batman Movie premier that extended their “Wow to How” to add a “Pow”! We were one of only a couple partners selected to participate.

Call to Action; The big hit was a video performed by their Chief Demo Officer. See it here:
The core messages Citrix is trying to convey to the market IMO is the following:
Cloud Solutions - Citrix has a number of surprising technologies that enable organizations and service providers to build clouds. My 2 favorites are CloudPlatform built on Apache CloudStack and CloudGateway!
Workshifting – Citrix site sums this up best; “Citrix workshifting solutions comprise desktop and app virtualization, HDX over any network, easy online meetings, a collaborative work platform, a self-service app store, follow-me data and secure-by-design technology to make workshifting simple and secure for any organization.” This enables the BYO craze!
The Big Picture!
Citrix has produced a slick diagram that summarizes and defines their complete reference architecture.
