City of Corona Revamps IT to Support Remote Work


Organizations worldwide are feeling the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic to this day as they continue to find difficulty with enabling remote work and hybrid work environments.

One municipality in California, the City of Corona, embraced the concept before the pandemic. Sitting on the Elsinore Fault Zone near the San Andreas Fault line, and being in wildfire territory, the municipality implemented Citrix digital workspace solutions to “disaster proof” its operations five years ago.

After a successful pilot, Kyle Edgeworth, deputy CIO, City of Corona, and his team moved to modernize its IT infrastructure and cloud-first strategy to support a wider implementation.

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

As a Citrix Ready partner, NVIDIA virtual GPU technology is verified to work with Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktop. NVIDIA vGPU enables powerful GPUs from the enterprise data center, public cloud and private clouds to power virtual workstations, desktops and apps with an immersive user experience for everyone. IT can virtualize 100% of its users with a native PC-equivalent experience, achieving lower cost per desktop. This experience will keep employees productive and engaged.

“We made the decision to ultimately transition everything to the cloud,” Edgeworth said. “Citrix was the logical choice to pair with Microsoft, as it enhances the value of Azure Virtual Desktop, providing enterprise tools that improve user density and performance, allow us to provision workloads on-demand, and simplify how our team manages images and applications.”

The City of Corona is learning more about the features within its Citrix and Microsoft technology arsenal. With these capabilities, the municipality is embracing the future of work.
