City of Corona Modernizes IT with Citrix® to Support Remote Work


FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Organizations around the world continue to debate whether and how to enable remote working, but the City of Corona is not one of them. The municipality embraced the concept long before the pandemic forced it to, and built a powerful digital workspace that provides access to everything its employees need to engage and be productive, wherever they are . On August 4, City will discuss its journey to remote work and how it uses solutions from Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTXS) and partner NVIDIA to accelerate it during a Fireside Chat exclusive.

The journey began five years ago when the city of Corona, which sits in the heart of California’s earthquake and wildfire territory, implemented Citrix’s digital workspace solutions to “resist to disasters” its operations.

“In an emergency, we have to be nimble,” said Kyle Edgeworth, assistant CIO for the City of Corona. “We need access to our systems and data and we would like our employees to be able to work from anywhere.”

Citrix allows both. And following a successful pilot, Edgeworth and his team decided to modernize their IT infrastructure and cloud-first strategy to support broader implementation.

He started by decoupling traditional hardware from the computing equation and replacing it with Citrix cloud-delivered digital workspace solutions, the Microsoft Azure NVv6 series powered by NVIDIA GPUs, NVIDIA virtual GPU technology and Azure Virtual Desktop.

There are also advantages to using Citrix alongside NVIDIA. As a Citrix Ready™ partner, NVIDIA virtual GPU technology is verified to work with Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops™ to power virtual desktops, desktops, and applications with an immersive user experience that keeps productivity and engagement going employees.
