Stratodesk is Citrix® Ready™ for Cloud, Endpoint and Endpoint Premium Certified
Stratodesk, the leading global EUC innovator of endpoint OS software, announced Stratodesk NoTouch OS has achieved certification for Citrix Ready® for Cloud, Citrix Ready Endpoint and Citrix Ready Endpoint Premium. The Citrix Ready program makes it easy for customers to identify complementary products and solutions that can enhance Citrix environments. Customers can be confident that Stratodesk NoTouch OS has successfully passed a series of tests established by Citrix, and can be trusted to work effectively with the Citrix Workspace App for Linux.
“Citrix has made great improvements in the last six months focused on their audio and video redirection for Workspace App for Linux, including capabilities currently in high demand from our Citrix and Stratodesk customers”
Stratodesk’s NoTouch OS is now fully certified for Citrix Virtual Apps & Desktops version 21.12. Stratodesk NoTouch OS also ships with Stratodesk NoTouch Center, an enterprise management solution capable of managing x86, x64 and Raspberry Pi devices, and comes at no additional cost.
“Stratodesk and Citrix unlock your virtual desktops to fully enable hybrid workforces, allowing productivity from anywhere in a secure, centralized manner that lifts the operational burden from IT staff,” said Emanuel Pirker, CEO and Founder of Stratodesk. “Software innovation only matters if customers can take advantage of features without restrictions, which is why Stratodesk NoTouch supporting Citrix Workspace 2112 is so important for remote workers. On day one, our joint customers and partners can deploy our endpoint suite to optimize their Citrix cloud desktops experience with confidence.”
“Citrix is committed to providing our customers with solutions to power the hybrid models that are driving the future of work,” said John Panagulias, Director, Ecosystem and Technology Partners, Citrix. “The certification of Stratodesk NoTouch OS for Citrix Ready for Cloud and Citrix Ready Endpoint Premium demonstrates this commitment, as our VDI customers now have another tool they can use to empower their employees to work anywhere, anytime from any device in a consistent, secure and reliable way.”
Deploying ‘Day One’ Features for Citrix updates
Stratodesk continues its tradition of being first to deliver new features from virtual desktop partners like Citrix when they become available to the market. Stratodesk’s newest NoTouch OS version 3.3.508 integrates Remote DX from ControlUp for monitoring Citrix virtual desktops and applications. ControlUp Remote DX collects relevant data on the end-user’s work-from-anywhere experience, such as the quality and speed of their Wi-Fi or internet connection.
Without Stratodesk NoTouch, IT staff have to either download and deploy the Citrix Workspace App on their own, which includes keeping Windows installed on desktops, or purchase entirely new thin clients, which can be pricey and lock an organization into specific hardware.
Expanding Remote Communication and Collaboration with Stratodesk and Citrix
By deploying endpoints running Citrix Workspace and Stratodesk NoTouch solutions, enterprise IT organizations can offer their choice of unified communications and collaboration tools, including Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and Cisco WebEx with HDX certification, to end-users working partly or full-time from home. “Citrix has made great improvements in the last six months focused on their audio and video redirection for Workspace App for Linux, including capabilities currently in high demand from our Citrix and Stratodesk customers,” says Martin Therkelsen, Cloud Solution Specialist at edgemo. “Especially support for Audio UDP or Citrix Gateway, a feature released as Tech Preview in the Workspace App for Linux 2112, has received a lot of positive feedback.”
Stratodesk can transform any PC, thin client, laptop or Raspberry Pi device into a secure and centrally managed VDI/DaaS endpoint with Stratodesk’s suite of thin-client endpoint software solutions, including Stratodesk NoTouch Center, Stratodesk NoTouch OS, and Stratodesk NoTouch Long Term Support (LTS). The recently launched NoTouch LTS solution brings greater control to enterprise IT departments responsible for managing and efficiently updating from thousands to tens of thousands computing devices distributed across multiple locations.
