Citrix to End Availability of Perpetual Licenses for On-Premises Digital Workspace Solutions

Beginning on October 1, 2020, Citrix customers will only be able to purchase on-premises Digital Workspace software solutions as a subscription. What does this mean for you? In this blog article we’ll explain how these changes could affect you and what your next steps should be.

Keeping Up in a Changing Technology World

In keeping with today’s subscription-based economy, Citrix recently announced that as of October 1, 2020, customers will only be able to purchase on-premises digital workspace solutions in a subscription model rather than the previously available perpetual licensing model. Affected products include Citrix Virtual Desktop, Citrix Virtual Apps, Citrix Content Collaboration, Citrix Endpoint Management, Citrix Workspace, Citrix App Layering, Citrix Hypervisor, Citrix Provisioning Server, Citrix EdgeSight, Citrix Norskale, and Citrix CloudGateway.

What this Means for Citrix Customers

If you are an existing perpetual customer, you can continue to deploy Citrix Workspace on-premises products but new customers or those looking to add licenses to their contracts will do so on a subscription-based model. Moving to a subscription-based solution allows you to take advantage of new financial benefits – you’ll have a lower upfront cost of entry with the flexibility to scale your licenses up or down based on necessity, saving you money over the long-term. Subscriptions also offer simplified billing that combines the costs for all software, support, and training on a single invoice.

Next Steps

Again, there are no immediate actions for existing perpetual Citrix customers. However, if you’re looking to add licenses or are new to Citrix altogether, your on-premises products will be purchased on a subscription model.
