Arcus Networks is pleased to announce our new partnership with Citrix. Citrix is the leader in application delivery, or what is refered to as “Software as a Service (SaaS).

And now with this new partnership, Arcus can deliver applications to you for penny’s on the dollar.

The workplace of the 21st century is undergoing a remarkable transformation, driven in part by innovation in consumer technology. People are increasingly bringing the smartphones, tablets and other devices they use ubiquitously in their personal lives into the workplace and expecting the same kind of rich, self-service experience they have at home. This “consumerization” is driving rapid change in business and IT, dissolving the lines between work and play, the office, home or somewhere in between. Today’s “workplace” is no longer a building you go to; it’s wherever you find inspiration.

Citrix gives businesses the ability to embrace consumerization using virtualization, networking, collaboration and cloud technologies. With these technologies, we’re transforming the way business is done. More than 230,000 enterprises rely on Citrix virtualization, networking and cloud solutions to deliver over 100 million corporate desktops and touch 75 percent of internet users each day. Citrix partners with over 10,000 companies in 100 countries. Annual revenue in 2010 was over $1.87 billion.
