Citrix aims to deliver new features and updates to Citrix Workspace customers when they’re available. New releases provide more value, so there’s no reason to delay updates.
This process is transparent to you. Initial updates are applied to Citrix internal sites only and are then applied to customer environments gradually. Delivering updates incrementally maximizes product quality and availability.
For details about the Service Level Agreement for cloud scale and service availability, see the Citrix Cloud Service Level Agreement. To monitor service interruptions and scheduled maintenance, see the Service Health Dashboard.
