Leverage mobile, cloud, networking and desktop solutions

Citrix and IBM have shared more than 20 years of close partnership. Through our strategic alliance, we continue to build mutual skills, and commit more resources to delivering innovative mobile workspace solutions that bring added value to our customers.

Optimize user experience on any device with virtualization

IBM Mobile Virtualization Services relies on Citrix Workspace to give employees the freedom to work from anywhere, anytime. With the most complete, integrated mobility solution for an on-demand mobile workstyle, a Citrix Workspace seamlessly unifies Citrix market-leading technologies to deliver high-performing virtual desktops and mobile workspaces.

Users get an unmatched experience, whether through a full desktop or just applications. IT gets enterprise-grade security, scalability and control, on-premises or as-a-service through a SoftLayer cloud.
