Citrix Alternative: Deliver Windows Applications and Desktops to Any Device for a Fraction of What You’re Paying For Citrix

Move to V2 Cloud to streamline the deployment and management of virtual desktops. Our fully integrated Desktop-as-a-Service solution accelerates time-to-value, reduces implementation efforts and lowers costs.

Deploy in Minutes and Reduce IT Overhead

Up and running out-of-the-box

V2 Cloud’s all-in-one Desktop-as-a-Service solution includes built-in security, virtual private networks and remote working features without need for complex plugins and long learning curves that is so often required by Citrix and other providers.

Scale from single-digit deployments to thousands of seats

Small and medium-sized businesses have had to over-invest in Citrix for smaller deployments. V2 Cloud takes out complexity from end-users and lowers the entry point such that smaller deployments make sense both technically and financially.

Fair and proportionate pricing

Legacy VDI pricing plans are designed for large corporations and enterprises, leaving small and medium-sized businesses locked out or confined in the expensive small-deployment pricing bracket.

As an alternative to Citrix, V2 Cloud’s VDI solution has a fair and balanced pricing model, ensuring costs are proportionate to the needs and requirements of your business with no hidden fees, no up-front costs, and no minimum order-requirements.

Factors for Deciding on a Citrix Alternative

Number of Users

This is the key factor to consider when evaluating a Citrix deployment. The number of users is representative of the total amount of workload you require and is the main price-driving force.

Factors V2 Cloud Citrix

Small-to-mid sized deployments

Citrix solutions see good return on investment with large deployments. So if your number of users is anywhere under 250, V2 Cloud is the suitable solution for you. It enables you to scale up and down without friction, manage your users and platform from a centralized dashboard, reduce costs and provide better long-term stability.

Large deployments

Solutions over 250 end-users come hand-in-hand with more complex cloud infrastructure that can be suited with the help of V2 Cloud’s product experts. However, if you have the required expertise and experience in-house, solutions provided by vendors such as Citrix and VMWare may give you better technical flexibility to suit your use cases.

In-house IT Team Size

The deployment and management of a complex VDI solution will require trained and dedicated staff. Your internal IT team size must be considered when evaluating vendors.

Factors V2 Cloud Citrix

Small-to-mid sized deployments

Organizations with a large pool of internal IT resources can either have staff with deep knowledge in VDI solutions, or are able to assign and train staff as required. Deploying complex solutions such as the ones provided by Citrix can have many benefits when supported by internal IT staff. However, simple solutions such as V2 Cloud’s can provide many similar benefits and enable organizations to reassign IT staff to other value-adding activities.

Fewer IT staff without vendor-specific knowledge

Smaller teams can provide value more quickly with a less-complex and more modern product using features such as VM templates and simplified configuration. V2 Cloud’s DaaS offering is tailored for businesses with limited IT resources

Vendor-Specific Technical Expertise

Factors V2 Cloud Citrix
Deploying and managing VDI platforms such as Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop requires in-depth technical expertise, often specific to that one product. Most traditional VDI solutions now have engineers that specialise in a single product or suite of products such as Citrix due to the complex management and configuration required.

V2 Cloud is intuitive and easy to use, with a simplified network setup, templates for deployments and easy application and desktop management. The features and setup processes available through V2 Cloud reduce the technical expertise required, ensuring IT staff can spend as little time as possible learning complex configuration rules and integrations.

Budget and Pricing Models

Pricing models will determine whether a solution can be financially suitable or not. VDI solutions should offer proportionate pricing with respect to your budget and usage.

V2 Cloud Pricing

Ensures fees are fair by having no hidden costs, no minimum order, no required contract and no up-front fees. Suitable for businesses which require predictable pricing and smaller budgets.

Citrix Pricing

Complex pricing depending on usage, contract terms, additional add-ons, plug-ings and services. For businesses with good commercial analysts supporting IT, Citrix can deliver tailored services and made-to-measure costs.
