Derive & the Citrix CloudPlatform: a single, unified, application-centric, platform that reliably & efficiently orchestrates enterprise & cloud-native applications

Derive Technologies and our strategic alliance partner, Citrix, bring corporations and government and public sector organizations the Citrix CloudPlatform, powered by Apache CloudStack. It is, in the words of Citrix, "the industry’s only future-proofed, application-centric cloud solution proven to reliably and efficiently orchestrate both traditional enterprise and cloud-native application workloads – including vGPU-based 3D graphics applications – within a single unified cloud management platform."

Citrix Cloud Platform: Simple, turn-key cloud orchestration


Citrix CloudPlatform is the only cloud orchestration platform that enables you to quickly and efficiently build a future-proofed cloud. It is a turn-key solution based on an open and flexible architecture that is designed to run every application workload at scale and with simplicity.

Deliver every application workload

Future proof your cloud by orchestrating every application workload — traditional enterprise or cloud-native — from the only application-centric cloud platform so you can address the requirements of today and tomorrow. The hardware agnostic approach lets you leverage existing investments and lets you chose the virtualization, storage and networking solutions that are right for your cloud.

Cloud provisioning for enterprise applications

Run complex enterprise application workloads with best-in-class virtualization and networking. CloudPlatform delivers true private cloud isolation, ensures SLA levels and meters usage and availability for running mission critical workloads in the cloud. For faster, more agile management and operations of XenDesktop and XenApp environments, enterprises deploying CloudPlatform can leverage its cloud-based workload provisioning, or stage development, testing and production in a consistent way. This eases the application development and publishing processes.

Integrated desktop cloud provisioning for XenDesktop or XenApp environments

XenDesktop and XenApp customers gain enhanced manageability, predictability and flexibility through a common management framework that simplifies and automates the provisioning and management of large-scale XenDesktop and XenApp environments, including multi-tenant, multi-site, and hybrid-cloud implementations.

Scale up, out & in automatically with cross-workload AutoScale


Citrix NetScaler combined with Citrix CloudPlatform enables automatic and dynamic load balancing and scaling of your infrastructure. No manual intervention is needed for real-time workload balancing, and additional infrastructure resources are provisioned as needed.

Open & flexible cloud architecture

Based on open source Apache CloudStack, CloudPlatform is the industry’s most flexible and open cloud orchestration platform. Leverage industry standard Amazon Web Service APIs and a rich partner ecosystem to expand and integrate value-added solutions and services.

Amazon-style scalability & operations

Designed for the new generation of cloud-native application workloads, CloudPlatform delivers Amazon-like availability, storage and networking. Proven at over 40,000 hosts per region, CloudPlatform provides true cloud scalability, elasticity and management efficiency.
