Citrix Releases Latest Version of Cloud Services Delivery Platform
Cloud software provider Citrix announced on Wednesday it has released CloudPortal Business Manager 2.0, a one stop cloud services delivery platform.
The move comes a few months after cloud backup provider BackupAgent integrated with Citrix to deliver cloud backup to service providers through the Citrix CloudPortal Services Manager.
CloudPortal Business Manager 2.0 enables enterprises and service providers to unify the commerce, user management, provisioning and operational aspects of a cloud into a single cloud interface for delivering anything as a service.
Using the platform, cloud developers are able to transform general purpose cloud infrastructures into consumable business services, placing IT in the role of strategic cloud services broker by enabling an agile IT as a service model.
The release of the new platform expands on Citrix vision for helping businesses of all types and sizes build clouds the way the world’s most successful clouds are built.
