Being able to log in to a fully functional, Windows desktop environment from anywhere in the world can provide instant advantages for any business. ColoSpace and IntraSystems have announced that they have teamed up to provide a Desktop as a Service offering that allows organizations to spin up new desktops in the cloud at a low, monthly cost.
Desktop as a Service has several advantages. Your organization can take full control over your end users experience using DaaS, while some businesses may opt to use DaaS as a business continuity solution. The best part about Desktop as a Service is that it can be accessed from any Windows, Mac, Linux or Android operating system.
The partnership involving ColoSpace and IntraSystems seems like a perfect match. ColoSpace is a leader in providing infrastructure solutions for businesses while IntraSystems has excelled in provided Citrix based solutions for businesses that are looking to get more bang for their buck. Infact, IntraSystems is a leading Citrix Platinum Solution and Service Provider.
ColoSpace Founder Aaron Sawchuk commented on the deal saying, “It just made sense to partner in order to create a service that fulfills such a growing demand.”
John Fox, Chief Operating Officer of ColoSpace says, “Companies are really seeking out flexible solutions that drive down their IT spend. This is a great extension to our suite of managed services that provides just that – a flexible and cost efficient, cloud based solution.”
The new cloud based Desktop as a Service offering comes with several built in key advantages. For instance, all workloads are hosted in SSAE16 certified data centers.
Paul Kunze, VP of sales for Infrasystems says that Desktop as a Service costs a fraction of what it would cost to maintain a traditional desktop computer. Since DaaS can be accessed from anywhere in the world, end users are encouraged to bring their devices in order to connect to their workplace environments.
