This service is intended to provide a separate Azure subscription for contractor hires, mergers and acquisitions, or temporary workers, offering the same benefits of scale with additional isolation from the primary Azure subscription.

Citrix Managed Azure is available for purchase directly from the Azure Marketplace and can be integrated with an existing Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service account. The service provides quick create scenarios that include easy-to-select machine type, region, and number of machines needed to make deployment of virtual apps and desktops in real time easier.

This pay-as-you-go Citrix Managed Azure offering simplifies the hosting of app and desktop workloads, making it simple to leverage cloud desktops on demand. What makes Citrix Managed Azure unique is customers can purchase consumption (funds) in advance for things like budgeted projects and have them available as needed or it can be leveraged on demand and billed in arrears. Citrix Managed Azure can be ordered conveniently via Azure Marketplace or directly through your Citrix sales representative.
