Specifically, Citrix rolled out its CloudBridge CSX architecture along with its CloudBridge 2000WS appliance. The general idea is that the CloudBridge set up consolidates servers with pre-configured Windows Server.

The CloudBridge offering also comes bundled with applications from Qumu, Talon and Cortado along with up to two virtual Windows Server images. The bundle is designed to offer video distribution and streaming, file collaboration and print services at branch offices.

Under the arrangement, Qumu, Talon and Cortado are the first partners to be verified for CSX for CloudBridge. Qumu offers a video and Webcasting platform, Talon handles file sharing and Cortado specializes in print services.

The CloudBridge 2000WS appliance starts at $22,000 a pop.
