ColoSpace and IntraSystems Unite to Offer Desktop-as-a-Service
June 18, 2015 ColoSpace and IntraSystems are pleased to announce a Citrix-based Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solution, the IntraCloud Virtual Workspace, Powered by ColoSpace, that can be accessed from anywhere in the world. DaaS brings together the desktop, applications, data, and IT services into a single cloud solution. This solution enables people to access all of their apps and data—cloud or local—from a hosted desktop on any device—Windows, Mac, tablet, or smartphone—from any location. With more and more companies having a mobile workforce and a greater global presence, DaaS is an ideal solution that not only saves money, but more importantly, secures applications. IntraSystems, the leading Citrix Platinum Solution and Service Provider in New England, and ColoSpace, the leading regional provider of data center colocation in New England, became partners in 2014 due to the strong demand for a solution such as DaaS. "It just made sense to partner in order to create a service that fulfills such a growing demand," says ColoSpace Co-Founder, Aaron Sawchuk. John Fox, ColoSpace COO added, "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." Companies incur no additional hardware costs, lower ongoing support costs, and are fully compliant. DaaS also facilitates "Bring-your-own-device," a growing trend among companies, which encourages employees to use their own devices. IntraSystems creates the ideal customized Citrix environment while ColoSpace hosts the cloud-based service through one of its top tier SSAE16 certified data centers located throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire. People are able to access their critical business data and applications through any device, anywhere in the world. "Today, more companies see the value of provisioning desktops through a secure cloud service. Our partnership with ColoSpace allows us to offer customers a highly available and customized desktop solution at a fraction of the cost of a typical desktop solution," says Paul Kunze, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, IntraSystems.
